The Islanders Hockey Academy provides entry-level hockey players with an opportunity to play ice hockey at no cost to you, equipment included! The Islanders know that it’s a big commitment, both in time and money, for a child to learn to play hockey and we want to make it as easy as possible.
We provide the ice time and the equipment for children ages 6-14 to begin playing hockey. All we ask in return is that each child who participates sells 30 ticket vouchers to any combination of select games as a fundraiser, allowing children who take part in the program next season to enjoy the same benefits that your child will enjoy. The program provides an example of true sportsmanship and is a great way for children to help other children achieve their dreams.
There are two levels of this program:
There are two levels for this program
This level is designed with the real beginner in mind. Participants in this level will have little or no ice skating experience. Basic skating skills are taught at this level: Standing, falling and getting up, skating forward and stopping.
This level is for a skater that has been on the ice before and wants to start developing skills to play the game of ice hockey. Situated in a clinic setting, this level will focus on the fundamentals: forward skating, stopping, puck handling, stick handling, position play, puck shooting, backward skating, etc.
The program includes full equipment – all pads, skates, stick, helmet, pants, jersey and hockey bag – and is a ticket voucher based program. Participants will also receive 8 weeks of instruction and the program will coincide with Come Play Hockey Month.
