Learn to Play (LTP)

Learn To Play (“LTP”) is designed to introduce children to the sport of hockey while developing skating, puck handling (such as passing, receiving, and shooting), and team skills. There is also an emphasis on learning about hockey and having fun in a team-oriented environment. This program is for players ages 4-8 (as of Dec. 31) with no previous hockey experience. The on-ice sessions will feature an active clinic-style approach with lots of hands-on coaching and instruction.  The program is designed so that the youngest players (for instance, those starting at age 4 and 5) can spend a second season in LTP before moving up to the Y8U program.  Players who have never skated are strongly encouraged to take introductory skating lessons with Union Arena Skating Club prior to or concurrently with LTP.
