Learn To Play

The Junior Crusaders Learn to Play (LTP) Program focuses on strengthening hockey skating skills and introduces confident skaters to more elements of the game of hockey including stick control and puck handling. Each skater will learn to sharpen and expand on the skills that they learned in Learn to Skate Stick and Puck. These skills are imperative for our next step in development, Mosquitos. Learn to Play is offered in three - 8 week sessions starting in September, November and January. Each session meets once per weekend for 50 minutes. Full hockey gear is required to attend this program.
