Our Adult Hockey Clinic introduces participants to new playing concepts and shows it’s players skill progressions, player development, and game situations.  The end goal of this program is to prepare it’s participants to enter a recreational league, but there are plenty of reasons to try our clinics.  For one, you can knock off the rust and get back to a sport you once loved playing.  The nostalgic feeling may be enough.  Furthermore, our clinics are great exercise.  Our instructors keep the participants moving using mixed skating, passing, stick handling, and shooting drills.   Even if you haven’t played before our adult hockey clinic is a great learning tool for beginners, as our instructor will group you with other players of the same skill level.

Each lesson consists of 2 hours of on ice instruction and scrimmage with a certified instructor.

Prerequisite: LTS Adult 3/4 or proven prior playing experience.
