Prerequisites for our LTPH Program is to have passed Basic 1 and Intro to Hockey skating classes or to demonstrate those skills during a private lesson with one of our professional hockey coaches.
The mission of the Sherwood Ice Arena Learn To Play Hockey Program is to provide an instructional experience that allows each student to improve his/her skills, knowledge of the game, and self-confidence through a positive learning experience.
Requirements for LTPH:
Our Philosophy is simple:
The journey to becoming a great hockey player is a long one. The Sherwood Ice Arena Learn to Play Hockey Program is dedicated to making that first leg of your journey as fun and enjoyable as possible.
By learning and developing the appropriate fundamental skills, every player will gain the confidence to compete and enjoy the game, no matter your age or skill level.
Classes are on Friday evenings from 5:15- 6:15.
Cost for LTPH and Game Time:
The cost is $16 per class. You must register for the whole semester for Friday class. NEW choose your Sundays! You can choose half or more of the Sundays in a semester.
The full amount must be paid at the beginning of each semester. Students joining part way through a semester will be prorated. $18 for USFS registration per year is required to participate in the Learn To Play Hockey Program. Sorry, no drop ins allowed as you must be registered for this class. Class limited to 55 skaters maximum. *see note below
The LTPH Game Time will be offered as an additional session only available to LTPH registrants. No drop ins will be allowed. Our desire and goal is to provide top notch hockey skills instruction once a week on Friday evenings and learn and have fun putting those skills to the test in Game Time play on Sunday mornings at 11:30 am. Full gear required including full face mask. You can choose how many Game Times you register for, as long as it's more than half of the semester.
If you miss a LTPH Friday or Sunday class (hey, it happens!), make-ups are on any Stick Time (except Thursday Super Stick Times). Just present your LTPH check in card and let the front desk know you’re there for a make-up. SIA will not issue any refunds or credits for missed classes. We’re sorry, but there is no make-up for goalies since they already receive free Stick Times. Thank you!
