Hockey Tot Class

Hockey Tot is a level 1 class for new skaters with little or no experience on the ice. This class will put beginner skaters on track to our Hockey Program.  All the same features of the RMPD Learn to Skate class with a bit of hockey flare.  First time skaters will learn:

  •  Proper way to fall
  •  Marching while standing and moving
  •  Swizzles, push & glide and two foot glide

Basic hockey activities such as playing with pucks and shooting will be incorporated into the end of each class. No experience is needed.  Skates, helmet and sticks are available at the rink for use during class at no charge.  Skaters need to bring mittens/gloves.  Typical ages 3-8, but not limited.  All classes are 30 minutes.
