♦ 1 – Learn to Hockey
The Learn to Hockey program is designed for the newest skater who is looking to learn to skate and hold a stick. This is an opportunity for players to build up endurance to skate for 45 minutes to 1 hour while fostering the love of playing hockey. These skaters will join coaches once a week on either Saturday or Sunday to work on skating in a small group. This class will host brand new skaters from 4-8 years of age for 30-minutes one time per week. Learn more about Learn to Hockey on the Grizzlies Academy page.
Learn to Hockey to Ice Puppies
After your player complete the 6-week Learn to Hockey they will transition to the Ice Puppies program. Players will transition from a one time per week skate to the Ice Puppies schedule of two skates per week. Learn more about Learn to Hockey to Ice Puppies on the Grizzlies Academy page.
♦ 2 – Ice Puppies
Our Ice Puppies are on their feet and ready to start learning how to move with the puck and with teammates. These players focus on learning the basics of stopping, edge work, passing, and shooting. These skills are learned in a fun and encouraging environment with the use of skill development games the kids enjoy. This group will start to work on the basics of youth hockey and continue to work on skating as well. These skaters will join coaches and their team for two ice practices a week, usually Saturday and Sunday. This class will host skaters from 4-8 years of age. Learn more about Ice Puppies on the Grizzlies Academy page.
♦ 3 – Jr Grizzlies
The Jr Grizzlies are skaters who have developed control of their skates and a puck and are working to learn more about team play as they work with coaches to develop individually as well. We also offer a Jr Grizzlies Advanced program for the players working hard to make it to the next step as a Grizzlies competitive player and on to become an Arctic Lion as they develop with us through the world of competitive hockey. The Jr Grizzlies Advanced players are also offered additional ice and opportunities to play in jamborees and tournaments in the state. All Jr. Grizzlies skate two times per week, usually on Saturday and Sunday. These players can be from ages 5-8. Learn more about Jr Grizzlies on the Grizzlies Academy page.
