Program Description: The Learn-to-Skate Program is a great entry point for kids to begin and develop skating skills and have fun out on the ice. The program targets boys and girls ages 4-10 and will be divided into groups on the ice based on level of proficiency.
Novice Group: Program emphasis is on having fun on the ice as children will learn to stand on their own and begin to move independently on the ice.
Advanced Group: Program emphasis is on having fun on the ice as children learn more advanced skating techniques, such as; forward stride, skating backwards, stopping, and turning.
On-ice parent volunteers that would like to assist CHA coaching staff are welcome. We just ask that you wear a helmet and fill out a CORI form. Please click here
to find the CORI form and either scan and submit to our Development Program Director (email address below) or in person to a member of CHA staff either found on the ice or at the sign-in table.
Required Equipment: HECC approved helmet with face mask, knee pads, and thick gloves. Elbow pads are recommended as are hockey gloves in place of thick gloves. Hockey skates or figure skates can be worn.
*CHA has a limited amount of equipment (helmet, elbow pads and gloves) available to registered players. If you are interested in borrowing the equipment for the season, please contact our Development Program Director (email address below).
