The Verbero Hockey Summer 2023 Skills and Drills
- Formerly known as our Learn to Play and Beginner League!
- Our Skills and Drills program is designed for players looking to brush up on hockey skills! ages 3 -16, whether the child needs to learn how to skate or learn the rules and skills required for hockey. We will break the players into small groups based on ability and giving them some drills and attention.
- The program is designed for some basic skills and light instruction! Many players also choose to use it as extra rink time to practice shots and skating on their own!
- The child may repeat the program as many times as needed. Once a player feels he or she is ready, we offer a scrimmage game for them to advance to a specialized, low competition, game style where instruction is still provided in a nurturing environment. Eventually, our House Youth League is available for players who are comfortable with their skills and ready to play competitive hockey.
