Learn To Play Ice Hockey At Planet Ice

Introduction To Hockey Excellence

Hockey Excellence courses are aimed at students who are 18 & under who want to learn to skate to play hockey.

Skate Excellence has developed a new progressive programme that is designed to provide skills and instruction. This course works as an introduction to hockey focusing on basic hockey style skating and the use of sticks and pucks.

A course developed for young people wanting to gain sufficient skating skills to become proficient enough to engage in the sport. Hockey Excellence will not teach you the game but it will give you the best start and involves puck and stick control with an emphasis on skating skill.

The weekly lessons will teach the fundamental skills of skating as well as puck handling, passing, shooting and game situations giving the skater confidence and a positive self-image whilst gaining achievement awards up to level 8. No skating ability is needed to start as we will teach you to skate right from the start. Once you have completed our Hockey Excellence Levels you will be encouraged to join the wild academy our junior system.
