Fall Learn to Play Hockey Registration Now Open

Learning to play hockey is more than just learning a game. More than skating, passing and stick-handling, hockey is about responsibility, respect and teamwork. As adults learn the skills needed to succeed on the ice, they also build and solidify important character traits needed to succeed off the ice.  
The Greater Seattle Hockey League (GSHL) Learn to Play Hockey (LTPH) program aims to be the gold standard for hockey programs with the goal of inspiring more adults to join the hockey community. LTPH changes the way adult hockey is offered by providing weekly sessions of skill appropriate on-ice instruction by certified coaches in a fun and safe atmosphere. LTPH on-ice instruction plans have been developed in collaboration with experts from USA Hockey.

This 8-week program is held each Sunday, 4:30pm at Olympic View Arena in Mountlake Terrace. New registrations are being accepted for upcoming dates that are not yet completed for a cost of $25 per class - or $100 for the remaining four dates
