Hockey Tots and Pre-Mites

2019 Summer Schedule

The Hockey Tot Program is a series of introductory courses for new skaters with little to no experience, that focuses on teaching age-appropriate concepts and skills.  With a defined curriculum and clear progression, your child will be ready in no time to join the Mount Prospect Bolts!

Hockey Tot  1 (Novice 3-7 Years Of Age)

This is the Novice level of hockey lessons.  Students learn basic skating techniques, develop agility and balance; learn to enjoy skating and hockey. 

The lesson plans lead the students from learning how to stand in a hockey position, to falling properly, gliding, jumps, and 1-foot scooter pushes.  Other drills and skills include creative skating around cones, skill combinations, introduction to pucks and fun games, designed to improve skating skills.

Hockey Tot 2 (Beginner 3-7 Years Of Age)

This is the beginner level of hockey lessons.  Students will learn the next progression of skating techniques while reinforcing the basic skating techniques learned in Hockey Tot 1.  

The Hockey Tot 2 lesson plans teach the students how to improve strides, 1-foot scooters, 2-foot scooters, forward swizzles, backward swizzles, 2-foot turns, “snowplow” stops and other agility moves.  Other drills include races, agility moves, skill combinations, introduction to pucks and fun games designed to improve skills.

Hockey Tot 3 (Intermediate 3-7 Years Of Age)

This is the intermediate level of hockey lessons.  Students will learn more advanced skating while reinforcing the basic skating techniques and agility learned in Hockey Tot 1 and 2.

The Hockey 3 lesson plans teach the students how to improve strides, forward skating, backwards skating, crossovers, “hockey stops”, pivot turns, and other agility moves.  Other drills include races, agility moves, skill combinations, and fun games designed to improve skills.

Pre-Mite (Advanced 3-7 Years Of Age)

The Pre-Mite program is a continuous of the Hockey Tot program, insofar that it reinforces the skating skills learned in Levels 1,2, and 3, while introducing puck handling, passing and shooting.  Upon the conclusion of this course, your child will be ready to take the ice with the Mount Prospect Bolts!
