Instructional Hockey introduces boys and girls 4 to 11 years old to ice hockey. The program emphasizes skill development, teamwork, and fun through organized practices and supervised, non-contact games. Tom Sieniewicz directs our Instructional Hockey program, assisted by other CYH volunteers.
Each morning begins with warm-ups and hockey instruction tailored for young skaters. The favorite part for all of the kids are the fun scrimmage games that conclude each practice. At the end of the session all the participants are recognized for their learning and achievement, usually with a small medal and big smiles.
**COVID-19 UPDATE: As of September 2020, we are assessing our options for offering instructional hockey in the 2020-21 season. We hope to have programming so please check back here soon for updates!**
17 Saturdays at 8:00-10:00 am, December 7th through April 4th - Note: No skate on Dec. 28. Check here, and @CambYouthHockey for schedule changes.
Parent/Guardians must provide full hockey equipment for Instructional Hockey participants: helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, pants, shin guards, socks, gloves, skates, and a stick. Velcro shorts are useful for pelvic protection and as an easy way to hold up the socks. A jersey will be provided by the program but a spare is useful for the first day. Much of this equipment is available for loan from Cambridge Youth Hockey.
This program takes place at Simoni Rink (155 Gore St., Cambridge)
