Learn to Play Hockey


What is Cross Ice Hockey?

A program to further develop skills and competitive team play for players ages 4-9, Cross Ice Hockey is designed to accelerate the development of an individual player’s core ice hockey skills in a team oriented setting while keeping a fun and positive atmosphere on the ice.

How Does it Work?

Coaches will coach & teach players during the game and will also be responsible for officiating games. The emphasis will be on FUN for all players while developing players’ core hockey skills. The game is small-sided, played 3vs.3 or 4 vs. 4 plus *goaltenders* if possible, and it is played ACROSS the width of one zone. When goals are scored the puck remains in the net. The opposing coach throws a puck yelling “new puck!” into the center of the ice and play resumes. If the puck leaves the playing area (from deflections or shot over the boards) a coach immediately throws another puck into the playing area yelling “new puck!” and play resumes.
