The Woburn Youth Hockey Learn-to-Skate Beginner level is an introductory class designed with the goal of allowing children aged 4 and above with no prior skating experience or with limited experience requiring the use of a skating aid to build confidence while learning the basic skills of skating. This program will help children develop the ABCs of movement – Agility, Balance, Coordination and speed, which is essential for developing fundamental movement skills and physical literacy.
PLEASE NOTE: CHILDREN WITH PRIOR SKATING EXPERIENCE OR WHO DO NOT REQUIRE THE USE OF A SKATING AID SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE LEARN-TO-SKATE BASIC PROGRAM BELOW.
This program will run for 8 consecutive Saturdays from mid September through early November (exact dates TBD) at 10:30am. Upon successful completion of the Beginner program, the participants will be ready for the Woburn Youth Hockey Basic program. All classes will be well-structured with the focus on proper skill development and taught in a safe and positive environment, incorporating fun and games making class time an enjoyable experience.
