The Cross-Ice Hockey Program is based on the model of practicing and playing hockey across the ice surface as compared to practicing and playing lengthwise along the full length of the ice surface. Players will learn the skills necessary to move up to Mite Hockey or their age appropriate level, while having an enjoyable time in a fun, exciting and competitive environment.
The Objectives of the program are:
ü Give every child a chance to play hockey and experience a feeling of success
ü Create the same exciting and fun environment as in a “real” game
ü Keep children excited and motivated to continue playing hockey
