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.
