Learn to Skate & Learn to Play

Methuen Youth Hockey Association is excited to announce that it will be holding its Learn to Skate and Learn to Play Hockey clinics. The clinics  will be a 19 week program (9 weeks before Christmas and 10 weeks after Holidays - weather permitting) held on Saturday mornings as follows:

October 17, 2015 – December 19, 2015 (There will be no sessions on Saturday, November 28th)

January 9, 2016 – March 12, 2016

Clinics will be held at the Methuen High School Rink, 1 Ranger Road, Methuen, MA.

These introductory clinics are a great opportunity for boys and girls to have fun learning to skate at a reasonable cost. Both programs are open to boys and girls ages 4-10. Skaters will attend one hour each week according to their skill level.  Attendance is NOT mandatory.

  • Learn to Skate (LTS) - Saturdays from 8:40 – 9:40 am– this program is designed for beginner and intermediate skaters. USA Hockey certified instructors will teach the fundamentals of ice skating in a fun-filled atmosphere with supervised instruction. Previous skating experience is not required. This program is great fun for the kids - you will be amazed at how quickly they are skating on their own!
  • Learn to Play Hockey (LTP) - Saturdays from 9:40 – 10:40 am – For children who have completed a Learn to Skate program, LTP offers a program for children interested in learning the game of hockey. Instructors will teach more advanced skating, along with introductory puck-handling techniques and children will participate in small areas games to help reinforce these techniques.
