- Approximately 20 to 30 minutes of “Pond Hockey” controlled scrimmage during  the 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.
