    What kids learn in hockey lessons


    Programs are generally targeted at age ranges. Growth and development targeted in each program is thus contingent on the age range. All programs have some focus on fundamentals. 

    For younger kids aged six to eight, programs and classes will target things like skating balance, physical coordination, and other skating fundamentals. Puck handling and passing are other basic skills that are worked on at this age. 

    Kids aged nine and older will be ready to take their game higher. Camps and programs focus on all essential hockey skills and introduce some unique to each. This will include individual skills like stickhandling, power skating and creating speed, and work on various shots: the wrist shot, slap shot, or snap shot.

    Courses will also include team play strategies such as set plays, instruction on penalty-killing defensive strategies, breakouts, and the like. 

    The more kids practice and the more they develop, the more they deepen their hockey sense and progressively gain more confidence.  

    It all gives kids a chance to play the sport they love just a bit more, learn with others, and have fun, of course. 

    The dedication each student gives to the program and that coaches and instructors give to them will also help them grow soft skills like: 

    • Self-discipline in eating, exercising, and skills development
    • Respect, exemplified by coaches and teachers, extended back to them and to others
    • Teamwork, as they practice and scrimmage with others
    • Communication, important both on the ice and in the dressing room 

    How to find the best hockey classes for your child

    You can narrow down your shortlist of hockey programs by asking the right questions as you research and compare different options. Here’s where to start: 

    • Can they provide references or testimonials from successful graduates?
    • What level of playing experience do instructors have?
    • How much experience do they have teaching kids?
    • What extras in terms of conditioning or unique training do they offer?

    Hockey schools are ideal for young players who are intensely interested in upping their game and who aspire to play professionally. Many NHLers were helped along through time in a summer hockey school. 

    Skating camps focus on various techniques that can include power skating, body positioning, leg strength. Kids increase skills in this core aspect of the game. 

    Sports camp gives kids a well-rounded set of programming. Camps include swimming lessons, basketball, soccer, and others. It’s a great way to vary fitness activities for young athletes. 

    Leadership camp is ideal for hockey players who want to lead their teams, and who truly have high aspirations. Maturity and responsibility are an under-appreciated and necessary aspect of professional player development.
