I know it’s the middle of summer, but what better way to cool off than than to sit in a freezing arena and watch your little one make prat falls on ice? KHS Arena, also known as Wildcats Hockey, offers free hockey for your Duck or King-to-be. KHS Arena is in a building about a mile west of “The Pond” (Honda Center). This class is for both boys and girls from 3 years old to 8 years old with no previous experience in hockey or skating.
Why would they offer this program? Coach Wess Estes says that it’s a great way to introduce hockey to little ones without having to buy all the equipment just to find out your kid doesn’t like it. He knows that hockey is a big commitment for both player and parent, and his program eases the barriers to entry.
It’s seriously a great program, and the awesome coaching staff will have your little pucker skating within 1-2 sessions. If for no other reason, the photo opportunities alone are worth the enrollment.
The KHS Free Hockey Class includes:
- (4) One Hour Classes with experienced coaches
- (4) Public Sessions/Stick
- Time for self practice time
- All the loaner Equipment you will need including: Skates, Jersey, Helmet, Shin Guards, Hockey Pants, Elbow Pads, Shoulder Pads, Gloves and an equipment bag to hold it all.
All you need to get started is a refundable deposit (check or credit card) for the equipment, and some thick skin as a parent; your kid will fall, but they all seem to love it.
They also have a learn to skate program if any of you ladies want to saddle your broken ice princess dreams on the skates of your little girls.
Getting started is pretty easy. Just contact Cherrie Sweeney (714) 422-1236 ext. 253 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up, or go to www.khsice.com. Don’t be discouraged if the people answering the phone don’t have all the info. After all, it is free.
