During the Fall session we will be skating three times a week.

Friday nights, which will be dedicated to game play where the ice will be divided in half and the kids will utilize the entire time to scrimmage each other.

Saturday mornings, which will be dedicated strictly to skating and in the mind of our Pre-Hockey Director is the most important session to attend!

Sunday mornings, the ice will be split into quadrants and the kids will be divided into small groups. In each quadrant different skill development drills will take place and the kids will rotate every 8 to 10 minutes to different quadrants. These small groups and different skill development drills allow for less standing in line and more puck touches.
