Adult Hockey

Basic Adult Development (BAD) Hockey is for all levels of adult skaters who are interested in learning more about the game of hockey and to provide a fun, affordable experience. Participants vary in ability and curriculum is designed for players with little skating and/or hockey experience. Players will be divided into groups based upon skill level and will have the opportunity to learn from more advanced players in their group. The coaching staff consists of former players and coaches and all practices follow USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM).

BAD (Basic Adult Development) Pre-requisites

Players need basic foundations of skating (players are further divided based upon skill level and grouped accordingly). For new players, extra practice can be a great compliment to BAD Hockey through Adult Group Lessons. For more information on Adult Group Lesson classes, please contact  Ryan Gayso.
