Participants are required to wear full hockey gear. There is rental gear available through the Hockey Director. Our LTP hockey program is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey to beginning players.

Power skating, balance, and edge control are the primary focal points and will be practiced each week. Other skills include puck control, passing, shooting, and preliminary game sense.
