The Intro To Hockey (ITH) program focuses on skill development without the pressures of competition. This is a progressive learn to play curriculum, designed to develop a foundation of hockey skating skills and basic hockey skills (puck control, passing, receiving, shooting) in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
