Ice Skating/Hockey (Learn to Skate)

With Albany County already providing a state of the art facility, the ability to offer youth the opportunity to learn to skate is exciting and beneficial.

The confidence gained by individuals through learning to skate ensures personal growth and a self-esteem boost that lasts a lifetime.

Once a child has down the basics of ice skating, they may participate in the Learn to Play Hockey sessions .The growth of such a program will lead to competitive hockey leagues and a feeder program to more advanced hockey teams in our school systems.
