Here at the Icenter we offer hockey programs for all ages. Beginning with our Learn to Skate/Learn to Play Hockey program we offer an introduction to the game of hockey with instructional skating and skill sessions. Based off the USA hockey model our LTS program has three phases of development from first timers on the ice to introduction of hockey skills and concepts.
Upon graduation of our Learn to Skate/Learn to Play program, the skaters enter our Real Speed/Young Guns Mite Development Program. In Mite Development, the kids will receive further coaching, skill development, and their first game experience in a cross-ice setting. The skaters receive individual coaching and postitive encouragement in a small group setting, while cross ice games will ensure they are having fun, and constantly moving.
Our Mite Development program is affiliated with Top Gun Hockey. Top Gun plays in the Eastern Hockey Federation, one of the top youth league’s in the nation. Top Gun has 20+ teams in the program serving Elite and Tier 1 players from Mite all the way through split-season midgets. Aside from the competitive game schedule, Top Gun places a high emphasis on fun and skill development. Teams practice 2-3 times per week with additional skill sessions and training available.
