U5 Learn to Skate (Burford Minor Hockey)

PrintU5 Learn to Skate

U5 Learn to Skate (one ice time per week for 10 weeks, first session begins in October; second session begins in Jan)

U5 Learn to Skate is a learn to skate program for beginner skaters aged 3-5.

This usually takes place Tuesday Evenings. With 1 early group and 1 late group. This allows us to split our athletes to give them more 1 on 1 instruction and space to skate and have fun.

"The goal is to familiarize young skaters with the "on ice" experience. The arena introduces a variety of new challenges for our young skaters with bright lights, loud noises and cold temperatures. Some children will adapt quickly and for others this will take time. The program is designed as a group learning experience as opposed to one on one. Each skater is required to wear full CSA approved hockey equipment, including helmet, mask, mouth and neck guards. Although sticks may not be used early on in the program they could be used later."
