WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR LEARNING TO SKATE IN THE PORT HURON AREA

PORT HURON'S BEST AND LONGEST RUNNING PROGRAM

Step 1: Snowplow Sam

Step 2: Basic Skills

Snowplow Sam is perfect for kids new to skating.

Preschool-age skaters develop preliminary coordination and strength to move around on the ice. The introductory classes are divided into four progressive levels for kids with no prior skating experience to build confidence in skating and themselves. Fun and games make this positive experience for your kids enjoyable and memorable.

Basic skills focus on the fundamentals of skating

The first stage of skills forms a strong foundation for your skaters to explore the world of skating. All will progress at their own pace working toward mastering each skill. Active Start encourages skaters to trade in hesitation for excitement as they grow a love for skating. FUNdamentals harness those skills as agility, balance, coordination and speed become the main focus of this curriculum.

Step 3: Move into Figure Skating or move into Hockey

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you really supply skates and a helmet for my child to use?

Yes we do!!! We have both hockey skates and figure skates as well as hockey helmets complete with cages. After we fit your child we assign you a cubbie in the locker so the stuff is always there for you to use for learn to skate. Please do not take it home. 

Is the registration fee refundable if my child is not ready to learn to skate or decides not to learn?

Yes, a portion of it is. We only ask that you try before deciding. Many youngsters are a little nervous and scared, but after a skate or two they should become comfortable and begin having fun. If you decide it's not for your child we can issue a prorated refund, or move your child to another class at a later date.

When does the season start?

We offer 4 different Learn to Skate sessions - approximately 10 weeks each. One starts in September, another November, another March, and finally June.

Why should I register for Learn to Skate and not just sign my child up for hockey? 

Hockey is a fast paced game with many children of varying abilities at the younger age. For your child to get the most out of the learn to play hockey program, it is best if they have the fundamentals down. This prevents the practices from being slowed down for the children that can skate already because of the children that cannot.

If my child takes to skating very quickly, can we move him/her up to the learn hockey program or private figure skating lessons?

Yes. If your child quickly moves through the LTS (Learn to Skate) program we can always move them into the learn to play hockey program or private figure skating lessons.

 

When do they skate?

Skates are on Thursday and Saturday. On Thursday the kids will go on at 5:45pm and get off the ice at 6:30pm. On Saturdays they will go on as early as 10:15am and get off the ice as late as 11:45am. Your child's exact time will depend on a number of factors.

What is a good age to signup for LTS (Learn to Skate)?

We have some children as young as 2 years old and we have children as old as 14.  The sooner, the better, but it’s never too late to start.

 

Can I register if a session is already in progress?

You can. We have kids of all ages and skill level. We can always slide you child in our of our groups. 

Where do I signup?

Visit www.phhockey.com and click on "register now". If a program is not open for registration there should be some news on the main page of the website, or you can email or call the hockey office. The hockey office contact info can be found under the PHMHA Contacts tab of the website.

What are the current prices?

Just $85 for 10 skates (one day a week) or $150 for 20 skates (twice a week)! 

What happens after my child completes LTS (Learn to Skate)?

Typically children interested in hockey will complete a full year of LTS (Learn to Skate) then signup for U8 (8 & Under/Learn to Play Hockey) the following year. It really depends on if your child is ready to make the move up to the U8 Program. Our U8 Program starts mid September and goes through February. Registration is always open for the U8 program, but you must be able to skate before learning to play hockey. Children interested in figure skating may continue to sign up for LTS year after year to work through each level or may decide to move into private lessons with a coach.
