Intro To Hockey - Ages 5 and Up

Chris Woida
Head Coach

Shane Valentine
Intro Coordinator

Welcome to Intro to Hockey

Intro to Hockey is a great place for youth 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.  Ages five (5) and up 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 we will get your player zipping around the ice in no time!


The Santa Rosa Flyers strongly believe that everyone can play hockey. Our mission is to grow the passion of hockey in everyone who is interested. Sometimes different abled kids learn differently. If your player has any special learning needs that need to be met in order to be successful in hockey please call Coach Woida before completing the registration in order to discuss how to ensure their success.

Fall Session of Intro starts August 7th!
