Learn to skate with us this winter!! Skating is a fun and exciting sport that will be with you and your child for life!!
Kent Youth Hockey (KYH) is very excited about our 54th year of serving the Greater Kent community with our Fun to Skate Program.
The goal of the Kent Youth Hockey Program is for all people to have fun and enjoy ice skating. As a program, we understand that each individual will advance at his or her ability and that’s what the program will embrace. For young children, the rewards of learning to skate are immediate and powerful. Within weeks of being on the ice surface for the first time, children as young as 3 years of age are able to skate forward, backward, turn and stop. The ice will split into sections offering a variety of games and entry-level hockey skills for those interested.
The KYH Fun to Skate Program begins Saturday, November 10th at 8:30 at the Kent School rink, running Saturday mornings at 8:30 and Sunday mornings at 8:30 am through February 2019. We recommend registering now for this wonderful program so that we can be sure to staff the sessions properly. Also, please check the website weekly for the most up to date schedule.
The fee for this 28 session program is $300 which is one of the most affordable in the entire state.
