What is Ice Hockey?

Ice Hockey is an action-packed winter sport that is considered one of the fastest of all sports.  The game is played primarily indoors, between two teams, on an ice rink with a goal at each end.  The object is to score on your opponent by getting a hard rubber puck into the goal.  The puck is transported using a stick.  The side that scores the most goals wins the game.

Who plays Ice Hockey?

Ice Hockey is a game that can be played by both large and small children who have good coordination and agility.  Quickness and speed on ice skates are two highly prized qualities in the game of hockey.  The players develop stamina from long sprints up and down the ice.  Passing is essential to this sport so strategy and team work are crucial to be successful.

 

 

What are the types of Ice Hockey?

There are two types of Ice Hockey: In-House Hockey and Travel Hockey.  In-House Hockey focuses on having fun while learning the game.  Your child will learn the rules of Hockey, stick handling, cradling, passing and receiving.  Sportsmanship and teamwork is emphasized.  In the travel league skill level is very high and competition is tough.  Your child's Hockey skills will improve substantially simply because of the competition, dedication and practice required to be part of the team.
