Join us for a fun-filled winter while learning to skate and developing basic hockey skills. The program is divided into three levels: Learn to Skate, U6 and U8 (Mites).
- “Learn to Skate” is for first time skaters regardless of age.
- U6 is for players born between 6/1/2013 and 5/31/2015 that already have basic skating skills.
- U8 (Mites) is for players born between 6/1/2011 and 5/31/2013 that have basic skating skills.
The U8 (Mites) level will feature an in-house league with 6 to 8 teams. Players will be divided into equally balanced teams in early to mid-November. All games will be played on half-ice. Full equipment is required. We also welcome youth who were born before 6/1/2011 to join us if they are new to skating or ice hockey so they can give it a try. This is Owatonna’s starter program that players progress through before becoming active in Owatonna Youth Hockey Association traveling hockey.
A helmet is required for everyone on the ice. An entire bag of protective equipment is available for rent through the Owatonna Youth Hockey Association rental program for $50 per year. Skates can be leased at Straight River Sports for an entire season for a reasonable cost.
Due to COVID restrictions there will be limits on number of participants this year per session, so register early. Maximum number of participants for Session 1 and 2 Learn to Skate is 30 per session. U6 and U8 the maximum is 44 per group.
