Learn To Skate and Play Hockey


LEARN TO SKATE CLASSES

The Toyota Sports Center offers Learn to Skate and Learn to Play Hockey classes throughout the year.  These classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of skating so individuals can continue on as a hockey player, figure skater or recreational skater. 

The primary program goal is for every skater to correctly learn all the skills introduced in a level before advancing to the next level.
