Ice Skating/Hockey (Learn to Skate)

2019 Learn to Skate program

With Albany County already providing a state of the art facility, we are excited to offer youth the opportunity to learn to ice skate through our free programs. The confidence gained from learning to skate leads to personal growth and a self-esteem boost that lasts a lifetime.

Once your child has learned to ice skate, they can choose to participate in our Learn to Play Hockey sessions. The growth of our hockey program supports local competitive hockey leagues and more advanced hockey teams in our schools.

2019 Learn to Skate program

When our ice skating and hockey learning sessions are over, your children can continue to enjoy skating by participating in programs offered by the Albany County Hockey Facility. Check out their web page to learn more.

In 2019, we had 306 kids between the ages of 5 and 9 participate in our learn to skate program. This is a fully inclusive program, welcoming kids with all abilities.

Our next session will be in March of 2020. Thank you to everyone who participated!
