Center State Youth Hockey: Learn to Play

Hockey is Fun!


Girls and boys ages 4 and up are invited to come try ice hockey for free on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 10:00 to 11:00 at the SUNY Morrisville Iceplex.

Kids will get the opportunity to hop on the ice and experience the fastest game on two feet!  Center State coaches will be on hand to give the kids a feel of what a typical practice is like.

While we will have some equipment available, it is suggested that all kids bring a helmet (bicycle helmet is fine) to wear on the ice.   

If you cannot attend but would still like to sign up your son or daughter for Session 1 (see reverse side for additional info) or would like additional information, please contact Rod Ives, Learn to Play/Mite Head Coach, at (315) 825-5058 or e-mail

Hockey players have fire in their hearts and ice in their veins.

Center State Youth Hockey Learn to Play Program

Session 1: October 19 thru December 21 Session 2: January 4 thru March 1

Forty-five minute ice times are usually Saturday mornings (9:00 or 10:00 typically) and Monday nights (6:15).

No prior skating or hockey experience is necessary. Teaching kids how to skate is what we do!

Our focus is providing a fun, safe, and exciting experience for all kids to learn how to skate and to begin learning the basic skills of ice hockey.

We will play some “hockey” the last ice time of Session 1 and the last few Saturday ice slots of Session 2. These games are NOT our focus. Our focus is F- U-N! We may add in a little skill development along the way.

Center State Introduces New Program for Beginners!

Center State's New Introduction to Hockey Program

At Center State, we are always looking for ways to improve our program for the benefit of all our kids.  This year we are going to be offering an "INTRODUCTION TO HOCKEY" program for kids ages 4 to 6.  This low cost program is geared for those kids and families that are new to skating and hockey and would like to "test the frozen waters" before jumping into the fastest game on two feet.  Kids will be introduced to skating over the course of four ice times to get them ready for Session 2 of our Learn to Play Program.

The dates/times for the Introduction to Hockey program are:

Saturday, November 2 from 10:00 to 11:00 (part of Try Hockey for Free)

Saturday, November 9 from 11:15 to 12:15

Saturday, November 16 from 11:15 to 12:15
