2019/20 Learn to Skate - Full Season (16 Weeks)

This Registration is for the FULL 16-WEEK Learn to Skate Season. 
 
The Watertown Youth Hockey Learn to Skate program is for boys and girls who would like to learn the fundamentals of ice skating. The program is run by the professional instructors of the Sharper Edge Skating School. It is designed to develop strong basic skating skills (balance, stride, edges and stopping) as an introductory program for children interested in ice hockey.  The 40 min per week lessons are ideal for children 4 years of age and up. Parents of children under 4 that are interested in the program are encouraged to contact Watertown Youth Hockey to discuss the eligibility of their child. No previous skating experience is necessary. 
 
During class, children will be divided according to ability. These groups will develop various skills as they work their way through the curriculum. As skills are mastered the children will move up to a more advanced group. The Learn to Skate program is an introductory program that will give children the skills necessary to move forward through the Watertown Youth Hockey system, eventually transitioning to Learn to Play and ultimately into the Travel hockey program. 
 
Skaters will participate in a 40-minute lesson each Sunday starting at 11:40 a.m., 12:20 p.m., or 1:00 p.m. Once a start time is selected, skaters may not change their designated lesson time without permission from the Sharper Edge instructors and Watertown Youth Hockey.
 

WHEN: The 16-Week Learn to Skate Program meets on 16 Sundays beginning in November and ending in early March.

HOW TO DRESS:  It is easier to control your child's body temperature if you dress him/her in layers. Have your child wear loose comfortable clothing so that body movement will not be restricted. Snow pants are recommended to keep the skater from getting wet when he/she falls. Waterproof gloves or mittens are best so that their hands stay warm and dry.
 

HELMETS: All skaters must wear a helmet at all times while on the ice. For the safety of your child, an ICE HOCKEY HELMET (with a cage) is highly recommended.  

SKATES: You must supply your own skates.  Skates must be sharp and must fit for the current season. “Double-runner” skates (2 blades each) are prohibited.

2019/20 Learn to Play Hockey

The Learn to Play program is designed for boys and girls with prior skating experience that are ready to learn hockey skills. It is recommended for children that are 4 to 12 years of age. 
 
Learn to Play is the backbone of Watertown Youth Hockey. The vast majority of players in our travel program started their hockey playing “career” in this program. It introduces the new hockey player to the various skills (skating, stick handling, puck movement and control), necessary to play hockey. Players will have sessions on Saturdays and Sundays for 16 weeks. On Sundays, the professional skating instructors of the Sharper Edge Skating School will work with players to improve their skating. In the other session, players will learn hockey skills from WYH’s USA Hockey certified coaches and play in cross-ice hockey games with skaters in the Newton Learn to Play program. 
 
Players entering the Learn to Play program should be able to demonstrate basic level skating skills – forward stride and ability to stop. 
 
Skaters will participate in a 40-minute skating lesson each Sunday at either 12:20 or 1 pm. We cannot guarantee your selected start time but will try our best to accomodate your preference. Players will be assigned to a 50-session for hockey skills/games on Saturdays starting at 9:20 or 10:20 depending on their age and experience. 
 
Full hockey equipment is required (see below).
