The LTG program is open to skaters age 5-16 who have completed at least one LTP session and are competent players ready to start playing games in a fun, non-competitive environment.
The program is intended to give newer players an opportunity to practice and play games at a lower cost and commitment than the official teams.
Each ice session will start with 10-20 minutes of skills practice, followed by scrimmaging for the remainder of the hour. This in a house program so there is no travel or playing teams outside of the program.
Players will have 3-4 ice sessions per month, alternating between Friday and Sunday afternoons.
Full hockey gear is required to participate in LTG.
WSYHA rents equipment to participants who do not have their own. Our equipment includes a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, shin pads and a jersey. Equipment rentals are provided on a first come first served basis.
We have limited quantities of sticks and skates that can be included in the rental provided we have the correct size.
Rental skates will also be available at the start of each lesson at no cost, courtesy of the Annex. Skates must be returned at the end of each practice. Good-fitting, quality skates can make a huge difference in your child’s enjoyment, so we strongly encourage all skaters to purchase their own pair.
Our hockey program is dependent parent involvement. Your efforts make our program possible so please consider becoming an on-ice coach or helper or an off-ice volunteer. If you are interested in helping, please clicking the link at the bottom of this page. Coaches will receive a Jacket and a discount on their player's registration.
The 16 session season costs $200 per player. There is also a once-a-year USA Hockey fee of about $50 which varies by age.
Equipment rental package costs $50 plus a $50 deposit ($100 total). The $50 deposit will be refunded when you return the equipment. Please note that skates are NOT guaranteed and are included based on our available inventory. We strongly recommend that you purchase your own hockey skates.
