For New Players to Come and Try

Our Junior Development Academy is for non-registered children aged 4-16 years that have very little or no skating experience and have never played Ice Hockey before.

Participants will learn basic skating skills including:

  • getting up when they fall,
  • how to move on the ice (starting to skate/glide),
  • basic stopping techniques, and
  • how to move in the equipment.

They will also be introduced to basic game structure, stick and puck skills. All sessions are run by experienced accredited IHACT Junior Coaches and helpers.

By the end of the Development Academy, all attendees should have enough skill and confidence to join our junior leagues at the start of Winter Season (approx. April 2019)

The Junior Development Academy will run every Sunday from 12:15pm-1:30pm between:

  • 11 November 2018 – 9 December 2018; and
