3 ON 3 CROSS-ICE 

It's time to play games!

3 on 3 hockey is fast-paced, competitive, and FUN!

 

While hockey players are becoming faster and more skilled, the importance of in tight game play is increasing. For graduates of our Learn to Play program, this is your first chance to play in games! Participants will be placed on teams, given a jersey and socks, and will play cross-ice games against other players their age. Our organized 3 on 3 program teaches players a variety of necessary skills in order to excel and thrive in the skill-based era of hockey today. Whether beginner or advanced, cross ice game play develops the player’s ability to protect the puck, support the puck carrier, communicate with teammates, stickhandle in tight areas, shoot a quick release shot, play heads up hockey, and most importantly, have fun and compete in supervised gameplay. Each Sunday for twelve weeks, players will play three twenty-minute games. There are no slapshots or checking allowed and all players must be fully equipped according to USA Hockey rules. Equipment rental is available.

 

All participants will be placed on a team and given jerseys and socks. Players will be grouped according to age and skill level. Teammates or buddy requests will be accommodated whenever possible.
