Hockey Introduction Program

Also known as the Hockey Initiation Program, HIP is for boys and girls ages 4-8 and is designed for eager hockey players who want to learn the basics of the game. The players should have entry level skating abilities. HIP focuses on improving skating skills, stick-handling, and positioning.

If you have an older child wishing to start hockey we will direct you to the age and skill appropriate recreation level at the appropriate time. Please contact Jay Boxer at cornerstoneicecenterjay@gmail.com


Mandatory Equipment for Hockey Programs:

  • Hockey Helmet
  • Hockey pants (breezers)

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need to know how to skate before taking this class?

Yes! We encourage all participants to have completed at least one session of our Learn to Skate program. More information can be found on our website.

Can I help out on the ice?

We need and will accept as much on-ice assistance as possible!  All on-ice volunteers are required to wear a helmet and skates. We will assign a particular station or group for you to lead. Volunteers should check in with Coach Jay at the start of the practice to receive instruction.
