The scope of these Monday and Wednesday morning classes will be semester long, we will teach hockey skills comprehensively, from basic skating to full ice scrimmages. We will assume no prior skating or hockey experience, and will be able to adjust sessions based on varying skill levels. It will be assumed that for students to take full advantage of their time they will attend most sessions. Hockey skills will be phased in over the course of the semester, following USA Hockey and Hockey Canada materials provided online
