New to Hockey? Looking to get Started?

Whether your child is brand new to the ice or has only just begun to  successfully stand and stop on the ice, Northwoods is the place for you!  While SAYHA and the Jr. Rampage do not offer beginner classes, Northwoods has age and skill appropriate classes through its Learn to Skate Program for any beginner ice hockey player.

Once basic skills are learned, skaters may progress to the hockey 1 and hockey 2 Learn to Skate programs.  Designed to help your hockey player learn the basics of skating before attempting to play, this program is offered to ages 5-16, and is a prerequisite for the youth Hockey Dynamics classes.
