Adult Hockey

Basic Adult Development (BAD) Hockey is for all levels of adult skaters interested in learning more about the game of hockey and provides a fun, affordable experience. As participants vary in ability, the curriculum is designed for players with little skating and/or hockey experience. Players will be divided into groups based on 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. 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 on skill level and grouped accordingly). New players can get extra practice alongside BAD Hockey through Adult Group Lessons. For more information on Adult Group Lessons, contact Ryan Gayso.
