The Future Rangers Beginner Hockey Program

AGES 4-14

Hockey Head Start was established to learn the necessary fundamentals as a way to introduce beginner skaters to the sport and prepare them for entry into organized youth hockey. The curriculum is designed to develop strong skating skills and ice hockey fundamentals through various drills and group instruction, culminating in the introduction of cross-ice game play. Our goal is to ensure that every skater is having as much fun as possible while building a foundation for future hockey success. Our beginner programs are an excellent way to encourage and teach children (boys and girls) the sport of hockey. The classes emphasize a positive and enjoyable atmosphere where all participants feel welcome and look forward to their experience at the rink.
