Session 2 is full

We are sorry, but session 2 of Intro to hockey full.  Please check back the end of February when we will open registration for session 3.

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 (as we rarely have different practice times due to ice schedule changes). The fee per full 8-week session is $150.  We understand you have busy schedules; unfortunately we cannot offer prorated or makeup classes.  If your child has never played hockey with us before, they will be able to sign up for the first session for $75 regardless of when they start.  This is only offered to new players and there are no other discounts that can be applied to this price.  You may sign up for and start Intro at any time.  Returning players who sign up and start anytime during the first 4 classes of the 8 week session, will be charged $150.  Returning players who sign up any time during the last 4 classes of the 8 weeks session, will be charged $75.  The best value for your money will be to sign up just before the beginning of the session or in between the 4th and 5th class of the session.  (If you are a new player the best value is to sign up at the beginning of the 8 week session, there is no discount if you start later in the session) 

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.
