Spring Hockey Season Is Around The Corner

The spring hockey season is only a few weeks away and now is the time to get your kids involved.  We offer 6 & under, 8 & under, 10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under, and 17 & under.  Not only is this an opportunity to get your child some great exercise, but hockey is a lot of fun.  Most of the kids that play here do so for anywhere from 3-4 seasons per year.  Our seasons run every three months and there is always the opportunity for them to play with different kids and make long friendships.  Veteran 8 & Under player Jeremy Jacobs says, “My favorite part is scoring goals and thinking of new celebrations to try.”  Teammate Kyle Brady loves to play, but always looks forward to getting a cool new jersey every season.  He said that is his favorite part.

If you are unsure of how to even get them interested, here are a few ideas to try:

  • Bring them to a public session and see if they like just to skate.
  • Buy them a stick and a ball and let them run around in the driveway.
  • Put a hockey game on TV and see if it attracts interest at all.
  • Let them watch a hockey game for their age group.

Pushing a kid into hockey is never a good thing and sometimes has the reverse effect.  Try some of the ideas to see if it sparks interest and from there it will be easy.  Hockey is addicting!!!
