2016 - 2017 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 – (weather permitting) on Saturday mornings as follows:

October 22, 2016 – December 17, 2016 (There will be no sessions on Saturday, November 26th)
January 7, 2017 – March 11, 2017

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. 

Skater Participation Requirements:
• HECC-approved helmet with FULL CAGE and ice skates ARE REQUIRED. 

• Additionally, we recommend that your child wears elbow pads, kneepads\shinpads, and warm gloves. For the LTP program, ice hockey sticks and gloves are required. MYHA has a very limited supply of equipment for use with the program.

• A completed 2016-17 USA Hockey Player registration. (www.usahockey.com) – There is not a fee when you register if your child was born in 2010 or later. But you must still register. Anyone born in 2009 or earlier will pay the USA Hockey registration fee of $48 as part of the USA Hockey registration process – Note this fee is nonrefundable and is in addition to the MYHA Learn to Skate/Learn to Play Tuition. You will need to insert your USAH Registration Number in your profile on the MYHA website. Please note no child will be allowed on the ice until their USA Hockey Registration has been confirmed as received on the MYHA website.

• Clinic is open to any skater not currently on a MYHA team roster. You do not need to be a Methuen Resident to participate. MYHA reserves the right to cap registrations as necessary.

Cost is $120.00 for the program – this includes attendance in one of the two hours each week.
