Instructional Hockey Program (players born between 2002–2017; no tryout required)
The KPW instructional hockey program has been introducing new players to the sport for more than 30 years using the principles of the USA Hockey American Development Model, which focuses on skills development and age-appropriate instruction.
This program is meant for boys and girls born between 2008-2016 who have some skating experience and now are ready to learn hockey and skating skills. The program ensures new players have fun while developing their hockey skills, and we introduce age-appropriate half-ice games near the end of the season to help put the skills they learn into action. Players are required to wear full hockey equipment and have a stick, and will be grouped with comparably skilled players to build their confidence and hockey ability.
Program features: 2 weekly practices Saturday and Sunday mornings from October-March; jersey and socks
Open to: Boys & Girls
born on or before: 12/31/2017
