MedStar Capitals Iceplex is proud to administer Learn to Skate USA Lessons.
The Hockey 1-4 Curriculum is endorsed by USA Hockey.
The Hockey curriculum is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating. In four levels, skaters will learn how to maneuver faster and become more agile on the ice. Proper skating techniques are the primary focus of the levels. All elements will be taught without a puck. Skaters will learn the necessary fundamentals to be successful in game situations.
(Successful completion of Snowplow Sam 2, Basic 1 or Adult 1 in our Recreational Skating Lessons is required before enrolling in Hockey 1.)
Hockey 1 and 2
Skating is a sport. So dress in athletic type clothing. Flexible layers are encouraged in case you break a sweat. An HECC helmet is required. Hockey Gloves and a Stick are encouraged but not required.
