Rising Stars is an introductory program for youth aged 3-5 focusing on the enjoyment of the game, while teaching participants the very basic skills required to play. Participants will play a variety of games designed to teach them how to hold the stick, make a pass, and take a shot while keeping things light, enjoyable and interactive for the kids. Most sessions consist of basic games, a couple of simplistic hockey drills, and a fun hockey scrimmage to end the session, but beware, the scrimmage isn’t your normal hockey scrimmage. Ours features multiple hockey balls so every child gets an opportunity and sometimes even features soccer balls to change things up!

The Rising Stars program consists of 10 sessions on the same night and time each week. We generally offer two days to choose from each season, but these change season to season. Options are provided on the registration page. All participants are provided with a t-shirt jersey at the first session and receive a graduation medal & pizza party upon completion of the program.

UNDER 6 PROGRAM (Ages 4-6)

The Under 6 program is a hybrid between our Rising Stars program and our youth leagues, which begin at Under 8. The Under 6 program features 30 minutes of skills & drills and 30 minutes of game time. Unlike Rising Stars, participants are formed into teams with a designated coach. That coach leads the participants through the weekly drills and then into the game. Games are self-refereed by the coaches. For the final 2 games of the season, we transition into games with a referee.

It is recommended that parents first register their child into one session of the Rising Stars program. Our program instructors specialize in working with young children and ensuring they thoroughly enjoy their experience. If you feel your child needs game action and is too advanced for the Rising Stars and think the Under 6 is a better fit, our instructors would be happy to discuss and provide feedback for you. We want what is best for your child’s development and most importantly we want them to enjoy the sport we love!
