ADDITIONAL PROGRAM INFORMATION:
- This program is designed for first-time players only.
- Basic skating skills are necessary to get the most out of the Learn to Play program, which includes being able to skate unassisted on the ice, not holding onto a wall or anyone’s hand, while being able to skate the width (shorter distance side-to-side) of the ice generally without falling down if just skating. As a prerequisite to the Learn to Play program, we ask that your child participates in a Learn to Skate program in order to learn the fundamentals of skating prior to the fundamentals of hockey. The Capital Clubhouse offers these classes; information can be found at: http://www.capitalclubhouse.com/learn-to-skate
- Participants in the Learn to Play program must register online. Phone and/or in-person registration at the rink will NOT be accepted through the Washington Capitals.
- Questions? Email Megan Whalon at firstname.lastname@example.org
-If you have a 4 year old or 10 year old interested in playing hockey for the first time, please email the little Sabres Coordinator directly (Megan Whalon) at email@example.com
