Learn to Skate/Learn to Play



The St. Francis Youth Hockey Associations would like to invite your son/daughter to be part of our annual “SUPER SAINTS” clinic.  This is a weekly clinic for your son/daughter to have an introduction to ice skating and/or hockey if they are interested.  There will be coaching staff on the ice to provide personalized attention to your future skaters!  The sessions will be a FUN and POSITIVE atmosphere for all!

Each session will be 30-45 minutes in length.  There will be two options to choose from each week.  A "Learn to Skate" and a "Learn to Play".  Session cost is $35 per session.

Learn to Skate - absolutely NO prior skating skills required.  This will be a fun environment for your little ones to learn how to skate.  At the end of the sessions, it will be our goal for your new skater to start to skate independently around a portion of the ice rink.

Learn to Play - a graduation from learn to skate. This program is an introduction for a new skater to get the feel of hockey.  Your skater will progress with more skating skills and we encourage hockey gear and sticks.  Hockey gear is available for use (FREE) for this program.  A low cost option to introduce your skater into the wonderful world of hockey!
