Description: For players interested in learning to play hockey once they have acquired the ability to skate. The LTP Hockey ("rookie hockey") program consists of two big-rink sessions per week (some blackout dates are possible due to tournaments at rinks). One session is a skills development practice, focusing on a variety of drills in stations format. The other session is a cross-ice game, a format aligned with USA Hockey's ADM program.

Equipment/Preparation: Please make sure your child is comfortable while on the ice. For example:
Adjust their helmet for a better fit.
Tape child's name on their helmet.
Have adequate clothing under their pads to keep warm, especially as it gets colder outside.
Make sure skates feel okay, tight enough to give adequate ankle support, but not so tight they hurt.
Adjust hair so that it isn’t bothersome or in their face (i.e., pull hair back).
If anyone has any questions about equipment or needs help at the rink, please see one of the coaches and we would be more than happy to help in any way we can!
Register your child with USA Hockey (USA Hockey registration is free for children under 6) to obtain a USA hockey number. Go to: http://www.usahockeyregistration.com/login to register. This is mandatory for all hockey programs nationwide.
