Introduction to Hockey


Introduce your son or daughter to Canada’s favorite game! The Jets Hockey Development Intro to Hockey program is a great way to emphasize the fundamentals of hockey such as skating, puck handling, passing, shooting, and having fun.


The Intro to Hockey program will ensure that your son or daughter is comfortable on their skates and works to build confidence with the puck to maximize their first years of organized hockey.
