About Hockey School

Hockey school is a fun and safe introduction to the game of hockey for children aged 4 to 7. Weekly one hour sessions are delivered by professional coaches from Healy Hockey who start by building a strong foundation in skating. Next they build on that foundation by introducing skills involving puck control like shooting and passing. Play based drills, small area games and half-ice competitions let the kids quickly expand their skills while they have fun.

Children starting hockey school should be able to skate comfortably and shoot a puck with a hockey stick. Children with limited skating experience are encouraged to join our Learn to Play program.

Our CDS program is a competitive extension of our Hockey School program for children aged U7 and U8. In addition to Hockey School, players in CDS practice with their team and play other nearby clubs. CDS teams also participate in festivals and tournaments during the season like the Leaside Invitational Tournament.

Annual evaluations ensure children are grouped into teams with players of similar abilities. Please be aware that CDS is an incremental commitment of both cost and time.
