Learn to Skate and Introduction to Hockey

Learn to Skate and Intro to Hockey Programs for 2020/21 Season
Dedham Youth Hockey is proud to launch our Learn to Skate (LTS) and Intro to Hockey (ITH) programs for the 2020-2021 season. As part of our mission to emphasize fun, friendship and skill development we will be offering a single session for each program. 

The session will be fun, station based skills programs in accordance with USA Hockey’s American Development Model, and run by our team of experienced certified coaches for children of all ages.

Like everything else this year, our programs will be run a little differently than usual.  Registrations will be limited to 25 for LTS and 25 for ITH.  Due to the limited number of registrations available, we will be limiting the program to Dedham residents this year.
