The Rookie Adult Program is designed for adults with very little or no previous organized hockey or
skating experience. Rookie adults are people who can't skate, barely skate, or skate a little and
want to learn to play hockey. We will focus on skating, basic hockey skills, and concepts of team
play. These sessions are coed and non-contact, and they are a friendly way to learn this sport.
A helmet is required and a half shield or full cage is recommended. Protective shin pads, elbow pads,
hockey gloves, and hockey pants will be required by the third session. Limited rental gear may be
available on a first come first serve basis. Instructors will be available at the first session to
help properly put on protective gear and will have advice for the how and where to purchase used
and/or new gear.
Weekly practices are guaranteed 60 minutes of on-ice time.
Program begins November 1st and runs until December 13th.
All practices will be on Thursday nights at 8:45pm.
Two sessions expected, each of 6 weeks. At the end of the first session skaters can join the WAHA "C" league or Women's League
that begins in January, or continue on for another 8 weeks of instruction.
Game play will be slowly introduced as players' skills develop.
Players will be invited to play in a game against WAHA "C" league players at the end of each session.
Coaches are experienced hockey players and coaches who have learned from USA Hockey.
Safe, friendly way to learn to skate and play hockey.
