Learn to Play Hockey


Players should be fully functional by themselves in hockey skates - able to get up on their own after falling, push with both skates and have some stopping and backward skating abilities. Players will further develop and strenghten their skating skills as well as learn hockey specific skills listed below. Similar to Andover Hockey Association's  "Initiation Blue' program. FULL EQUIPMENT REQUIRED. *Each Learn to Play participant gets to participate in the Half-Ice Friday's at no extra cost!


For those who are learning to play hockey, we will host informal cross-ice games for players to practice their skills. *This program is FREE for those in our "Learn to Play" program.

Equipment requirements for all summer programs: Hockey skates, HECC approved helmet w/ facemask, leg pads w/ hockey socks, elbow and shoulder pads, hockey gloves and hockey pants.
