Learn to Skate Program
The Beverly Youth Hockey Learn to Skate program is designed for the beginner, who has never put on skates, through the skater who has some experience on the ice but wants to improve their skills. We also have skaters who are beginning to work on their stick skills as well. No child is too young or too old to learn how to skate. Some start as early as two, but ages four to six are more typical, as well as some skaters who start later than that.
Location: Bourque Arena, Endicott College 376 Hale St. Beverly, MA 01915
Schedule: 20 sessions beginning Saturday, October 29, 2016. Sessions begin at 1230. Please have your skater ready to be on the ice by 1220.
If there is a need for a schedule change, it will be posted here: (https://teamup.com/ks1322c2caf6974466)
Cost: $200 (plus any USA Hockey fees if applicable).
Director: Peter Pound - firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration: To register for the LTS program, please first visit http://www.usahockey.com to register and obtain a USA Hockey ID # for your child. You will need the USA Hockey ID # for the LTS sign up. When you have your child’s USA Hockey ID#, please register for LTS at the “2016-2017 Registration Page” at www.BeverlyYouthHockey.com (https://www.eteamz.com/BeverlyYouthHockey/news/index.cfm?cat=629187).
o all participants must have their own skates (make sure they fit and are sharpened)
o all participants must have a hockey helmet with a full cage
o please write your child's first name on a piece of tape and place it across the front of their helmet
o all participants must wear gloves (do not have to be hockey gloves; for the absolute beginner, gloves with fingers (not mitts) are actually better for holding onto milk crates)
o knee and elbow pads are strongly recommended (do not have to be specific to hockey, but are very important because falling is part of learning to skate, and skaters gain more confidence when they can fall safely)
o some skaters either start with, or transition to, full hockey gear (pants, socks, chest pads) in the LTS sessions, but that is not mandatory.
o local sports stores often offer “learn to skate” introductory packages that include the basic equipment - for example, Pure Hockey in Danvers.
o BYH has a number of milk crates for beginner skaters to balance on, but if you have crates (two on top of each other attached together) please bring them along.
o BYH coaches and volunteers will lead the LTS sessions. If you have experience and are interested in volunteering, please contact email@example.com
§ We are also in need of parents to assist with checking in skaters at the entrance and to assist with getting the bumper pads onto and off of the ice. Please volunteer!
o The ice will be divided into two groups early in the season, and then into three groups.
§ Group 1 is primarily for first time skaters. Most skaters in this group rely on a milk crate for balance. The focus of instruction for Group 1 is to assist skaters in developing independent balance and basic movement through drills and games.
§ Group 2 is for those skaters who have moved beyond the use of milk crates, but are still a little shaky on their skates. The focus of instruction for Group 2 is to further develop and maintain the skaters’ balance and movement through more accelerated games and drills.
§ Group 3 is for the more established skaters who are more steady and certain on their skates. The focus of instruction for Group 3 is to develop skaters’ speed and agility. When Group 3 skaters are ready, sticks, pucks, and hockey drills may be introduced.
· Check-in / dressing / observing / parental encouragement
o Please check in your skater before heading to the rink. Check in will take place when you first walk into the rink.
o Please plan to arrive early enough to get your skater ready.
o For safety reasons, spectators will not be allowed on the team benches. All parents and guardians must remain in the bleachers.
o Learning to skate is not easy. It involves lots of falling, and lots of getting back up. Parental encouragement before and after the sessions is critical - to help your child understand that with hard work they will learn a very fun lifelong skill, whether they later decide to try out hockey or not. Through hard work, fun drills and games, your child will learn to skate. But it takes their effort and your support to make it happen!
