They will learn the techniques of striding, stopping, stick and puck handling, turning, passing and shooting. Chipmunks Hockey introduces the rules of hockey and develops the skills needed to play on a team in the near future.
Typically each class has a Skating instructor and a Hockey skills instructor to provide smaller coach to player ratio, and to include both skating fundamentals as well as hockey skills. Group rotation is used to allow each player to have equal time in both areas. There is usually a scrimmage game that follows to end the class.
- All skaters must have single bladed skates, well supported around the ankles, CSA approved helmet with full face cage and warm clothes (waterproof) including gloves or mitts. (Bicycle helmets are not permitted).
