Welcome to Intro to Hockey

Intro to Hockey is a great place for boys and girls to learn how to play ice hockey.  Our program features non-contact classes and is designed for anyone who wants to work on their hockey fundamentals.  All ages are welcomed, provided they have the ability to skate on their own, and there are no safety concerns expressed by the coaching staff.  It is fun, safe and will get your player zipping around the ice in no time!

Sessions and Costs

Intro to Hockey sessions run for 8 weeks and typically meet every Sunday morning (approx. 75 minutes). Please consult SRJHC calendar for exact dates and times. The fee per full 8-week session is $150.  We understand you have busy schedules; unfortunately we cannot offer prorated or makeup classes.  We do offer half-sessions (starting at week 5) of 4 practices for $75.

Each player needs a helmet, stick, gloves, and jersey to play.  We offer a beginner equipment package for new players for $90. Snoopy's Home Ice provides hockey skate rentals for free.

Register for Intro to Hockey

Intro to Hockey will take place in 8 week sessions throughout the fall and winter months, and will conclude in late spring. We expect to have at least 4 sessions during this time, but you do not need to commit to all of them; feel free to register for only those sessions that meet your needs.

***IMPORTANT***  ALL registrations and payments, both for the initial session, and all subsequent sessions, will take place online via our club's website.  You will need to create/login with a SportsEngine account and provide a current USA Hockey registration for the 2017-18 season. There will be an opportunity to pay using a credit card at the end of the online registration process.  There will no other paperwork to fill out or bring to the rink; you will simply show up for the first session and check-in your player.
