iceHQ Hockey School
All classes are run in station format with players split into groups with players of similar skill levels. Each station focuses on a different skill applicable to a hockey game. After warming up, players rotate through the station. This maximizes the use of the ice and allows for coaches to give better feedback to players while keeping everyone moving and practicing. Hockey skates, stick and protective gear is available if required. Open to all ages.
Recommended for skaters with the fundamentals of basic skating.
