During these courses, the skaters will learn balance, self confidence, correct falling and recovery, posture, and basic skating skills such as marching across the ice, dip in place, two-foot glide, forward swizzles, backward wiggles, dips, and snowplow stops.

Hockey 1 spans 3–9 years old. This class is still part of the Learn to Skate program. This is for the skater who has completed Tot 1 or Basic 1 and wants to get involved with our hockey programs. Fall and recovery, proper forward and backward stance, march across the rink, rocking horse, forward swizzles, backward wiggles, snowplow stop, and T-push and glide are all taught.

Our House League is your first team experience with hockey! Participating in a full season from mid-October to mid-March, players will have two practices and one game a week. Our House League players have advanced from Learn to Play Hockey and have a strong foundation of skating skills. These skating skills are reinforced and improved throughout the season, in addition to a better understanding of the game of hockey and how it is played. Games are played on half-ice to encourage more puck touches and skill development.

The 8U League is for players eight-years old and under and the 10U League is for nine and ten-year olds. Both leagues have four teams that will practice and play together. All games and practices are held at the Goggin Ice Center, and all players that register are placed on a team.

Travel Hockey is for the committed hockey player looking for a higher level of competition. The Jr. RedHawks have travel teams at the 10U, 12U, 14U, and High School age classifications. With full-time hockey directors and a dedicated coaching staff, the Jr. RedHawks are able to implement a developmental approach to allow our players the ability to progress at all stages within our program and advance to higher levels when ready.

Positions on our Travel Teams are secured through tryouts, where players are selected for teams where they will have the best opportunity to continue their development. These teams practice twice a week and play games on the weekend, both at home at the Goggin Ice Center and away at opposing rinks within the tri-state area.
