Revolution offers a Learn to Play program for children and adults interested in trying hockey. In this popular program, the participants will be taught the skills necessary to play ice hockey including skating, shooting, passing, and puck handling. Participants must have basic skating skills and have completed Snowplow Sam 4 or Learn To Skate Basic Skills level 3 prior to enrolling.

Revolution’s Adult Learn to Play hockey program is for those who have never played hockey before or for those who have very little experience. This program is the first step to entering our WVIHL or OTHC adult hockey leagues. In this program, at least 30 minutes of each hour will focus on the most important part of hockey, skating. Each week, participants will progress on the basics of the forward and backward skating stride, stopping, puck control, passing and shooting. Each practice is designed for players to practice their skills at their own pace. Team play will also be introduced through small area games in a fun and encouraging environment.

This class, suitable for ages 2 1/2 to 3 years old, teaches toddlers beginning skating skills with Mom or Dad right there to help them feel safe. We will teach your child how to fall down and get up, march while moving on the ice, and many other fun, beginner skating skills utilizing the Learn to Skate USA Snowplow Sam curriculum. The class fee covers registration for the child and parent and skate rentals. Register only for the child, but you must accompany your child on the ice for this class. Parents will need basic skating skills in order to skate with their child.
