Intro To Hockey

SUMMER session 1, 2021 Intro to Hockey

2020-2021 WCYHA Intro to Hockey

Intro to Hockey is perfect for first year skaters to learn the basic skills needed to skate and play the exciting game of hockey! Girls and boys ages 4-9 are perfect for this program. Skaters will be taught in a positive, safe environment by certified coaches.

Please note that no previous experience is required, and all gear is included with the cost of registration.

*All sessions are held at the Kettle Moraine Ice Center

Upon completion of intro to hockey skaters will be ready to  join our 8U (mites), 6U (mini-mites), or 4U program before playing with our travel teams.

Our travel teams go from Squirt (8-10 yr. old) through high school. Most travel takes place in South Eastern WI. In addition to our Intro to Hockey class we strongly encourage skaters to come to open skate at KMIC (free admission to public skate for pre hockey skaters during time of enrollment).

USA Hockey Video: Full Ice Hockey from a Child's View

To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. The players found the games tiring, difficult and said they would lose interest quickly in the sport if that was what they faced. See how adult players opened their eyes to what is being taught by the American Development Model of cross-ice hockey and small-area games. Learn more at
