ABOUT HOCKEY ON YOUR BLOCK

How We Teach Hockey

We teach boys and girls from grades K-8 who already know how to ice skate the fundamentals of the greatest game on the planet. Our USA Hockey certified coaches teach speed, agility and the mental toughness that hockey players need to be great at their game.

Hockey Directors Blake Sorensen and Caitlin Cahow, developed a four-tiered progression plan so kids can continue to improve:

 

Basic Skills
starting, forward movements and backwards skating

Advanced Skills
puck control, passing, shooting and scoring

3-On-3 Play
gain experience playing the game

Team Chicago
play exhibition games throughout Chicagoland
