Getting Started


Our Mission is to provide a positive youth hockey experience for all players of all skill levels and ages. This focus will help them develop as players and individuals and also foster a life-long love for the game of hockey.

learn to skate

Learn to Skate is the place to start for anyone new to the ice. Skaters will learn the basics of balance, skating, and stopping. Even the youngest of children experience success as they may start with a support bar before graduating up to gliding side to side.

  • Classes are Mondays from 6:00 - 6:45 on Rink 2 at Cornerstone Ice Center
  • Classes run 6 weeks for each session
  • Session Fees: $90
