- 9 one hour sessions that will cover simple instruction like skating, shooting, stick handling, positioning, defense, face-offs along with teaching the many forms of checking(poke check, stick check, back check, fore check)  and then scrimmages.
- Approximately 45 to 50 minutes of “Pond Hockey” controlled scrimmage during  the 9 one hour sessions.

- There will be four educational classroom sessions:  Offense Positions, Defense Positions, Hockey History and Officiating.

- Each participant will receive a Winterland two-side jersey to be used in scrimmages plus one set of socks.  There is a discount for returning players with a Winterland reversible jersey.
