Initiation Hockey is an opportunity for youth born Jan. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2015 to learn to skate, or improve their skating in an environment focused on games fit to the players’ sizes. The games are not regulation hockey games but involve the standard equipment and ice surface. The purpose of the program is to create an environment of play to foster the development of skills necessary to acquire the life-time skill of skating. The program is designed to accommodate the variety of ages, and skill levels from brand new skaters to kids that have actually played hockey. Players will be grouped based up on skill, ability and size to create a situation that allows all to succeed, and to improve through the session.
Following the end of Initiation Hockey, continuation through the Watertown Hockey Association is available.
