Learn to Play

Southside Skating School offers Learn to Skate Hockey classes for hockey driven skaters.    Skaters will  be taught important skating skills including edges, stopping, speed, control, backwards skating, and agility in a fun and engaging environment.   Skaters will also learn stick and puck handling and other hockey skills to prepare them for Cross-Ice and future game situations.

Some skating experience is required - we ask that participants have completed Basic 3 of the Learn to Skate program and be able to do beginners stopping, backward skating, and edges.
