Spring Jamboree: Each session we will hold two jamborees open for any LTPH student, Mite, or Mini Mite. We divide the ice into three sections and split the kids up according to their skating ability. Teams will scrimmage against each other, and kids will learn how to play on a team.

First Jamboree : Sunday, February 14th, 2013 4:00pm-4:50pm

Second Jamboree: Sunday, March 13th, 2013 4:00pm-4:50pm

Our Goal:

To teach the fundamentals of skating and hockey while creating an environment that cultivates fun and learning. During the instructional session time, students will be taught how to control their edges, skate forwards and backwards, pass and shoot a puck, and many more things. During the "game time", students will be able to use their newly acquired skills in a half-ice hockey game which will be monitored by coaches and staff!

Equipment Use:

Bird Arena will be providing equipment to those participants who do not have their own. This equipment is to be returned to Bird Arena at the end of the session, unless the skater is already enrolled in the next session. Rental skates will also be provided at the start of each lesson time at no cost, courtesy of Bird Arena. Skates must be returned at the end of every day.
