Learn to Skate
A Cro’s Ice Nest signature program, our Learn to Skate Program is unlike any other. Starting off the ice, progressing onto a synthetic surface, and ending on the real ice, participants are taught the skating stride, every step of the way. With private lessons and small groups of 4 or less, this is your child’s best opportunity to Learn to Skate. All for $20 per one hour lesson.
Learn to Play
An excellent opportunity for children to continue their Learn To Skate lessons and be introduced to many basic hockey skills prior to entering the minor hockey systems. Passing, shooting, positions and some of the basic rules are all part of the Learn to Play Program. Add in a ton of fun and you get a participant who will move onto a hockey team with confidence and a love of the game.
Adult Learn to Skate
There are many adults out there who have never had the opportunity to learn to skate. With operating hours to meet everyone’s busy schedules, Cro’s Ice Nest instructors are there to assist in any way they can. The small private ice rinks are the perfect location to get away from the kids and the crowds at the local arenas. You learn at your own pace with or without our assistance.
Learn to be a Goaltender
Just about every young player gets this crazy desire to be a goalie. Cro’s Ice Nest has a few sets of safe equipment for the players to try on and give it a shot. Instructors will conduct a thorough session which covers all of the basics a goalie needs to know and do to become proficient at the position. It’s an inexpensive way to give a player the experience of being a goalie and help them to decide if it’s truly a position they want to pursue.
Two-on-Two Hockey Skills
When it comes right down to it, the game of hockey is played in small places. 2 on 2 at Cro’s Ice Nest is the ideal way to work on many hockey skills while having a blast at the same time. The small rink ensures every player is in the action all of the time. Players must always be aware of their surroundings and position themselves to pass, shoot, or receive a pass at any time. For the goalies, 2 on 2 keeps them focused all of the time as shots can come from anywhere on the ice. It also encourages them to handle the puck and even take a shot at the other goalie if the opportunity arises.
