Players from the West Bend Bombers came out to a practice.
Our Intro to Hockey program is designed for the beginner hockey player (ages 4 to 9). We encourage both boys and girls to participate. Skaters will learn the basics of skating, puck handling, passing, shooting, and many of the other skills involved in the game of ice hockey.
*All sessions are held at the Kettle Moraine Ice Center
*Rental equipment is available for a returnable $125.00 deposit and a $50.00 rental fee.
Intro to Hockey is a development process used to prepare players for travel youth hockey. Once experienced, skaters will be invited to play on one of our travel teams or if young enough they can go to our 8U (8 years and under) 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).

Intro Development Lead
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 ADMKids.com.
