On the 8th or 12th week of the program the skater/player will be evaluated.  This evaluation will determine if the skater/ player is ready for the next level of LTP hockey, the Mini-Mite division or a full-fledged recreation team.

Gear rental is available through Kent Valley Ice Centre for $80 per 8-week series, plus a $100 security deposit which is refundable once gear is returned.

The Kent Valley Hockey Learn to Play program focuses on skating skills, but also teaches the basic skills of stick-handling, shooting and passing.  The Learn to Play program is done in full gear, and players experience the thrill and challenges of trying to skate, use the stick, and handle the puck simultaneously.  The LTP Program is available to beginning level boys and girls ages 4 to 10 years old. 

KVHA’s hockey coaches are certified through USA Hockey for coaching at the appropriate level.  Most have previous playing and coaching experience, many with college, junior and professional experience.
