20-Week Learn to Play Hockey Clinic

October 16, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - March 6, 2023 @ 5:30 pm

Want your daughter to try hockey? Join the Shoreline Sharks 20 – week Learn to Play Clinic that runs October 16 through March 6. Certified coaches teach skating and hockey fundamentals in a fun, inclusive environment using a mix of drills and small area games. And, girls eight and under new to the program can participate for free!

Our clinics are designed for girls ages 4 – 11 (Sand Sharks) and 12 – 19 (Junior Sharks) and utilize a fast-moving, station-based format that maximizes player development. USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM) guides our curriculum, ensuring the weekly activities are age-appropriate and, most importantly, engaging. You will be surprised at how quickly your child feels comfortable on the ice and learns basic hockey skills.

A team of seasoned instructors, including former collegiate players, high school coaches, and parents who’ve played their entire lives, share their love for the sport and help girls learn to play hockey.

In support of our belief that you are never too old to learn how to play hockey, we are one of the only programs in the state with a clinic designed for girls 12+ new to hockey. Whether girls are thinking about playing high school hockey or just want to try the sport, the program will prepare participants for team play.

Our Sand Sharks and Junior Sharks clinics utilize a level system to group players by ability and accelerate development. Aside from keeping players engaged and growing, levels allow coaches to tailor the cadence and challenge of the drills to match the skill. Once participants demonstrate readiness and competency, they advance to the next level.

Our hockey development programs occur at the Northford Ice Pavilion on Sunday afternoons. Tuition ranges from $400 – $500 for 20 weeks. Full hockey gear is required. Registration is rolling; however, the clinic typically has a waitlist.
