1 LEARN TO SKATE CURRICULUM INTRODUCTION The focus and goal of the Learn to Skate (L2S) curriculums are designed to teach beginner hockey players the fundamentals of skating. Every association will have different needs, access to ice, a large variation in ages (4-10 years old) and number of players in their L2S sessions. If you have 5 or 60 new players, USA Hockey recommends that you use age and skill appropriate drills to teach the players knee bend, use of edges and how to hold a stick before moving into a learn to play, 6U or 8U full hockey curriculum. The L2S1 Curriculum consists of 4 practice plans for a total of 12 sessions and the L2S2 Curriculum consists of 4 practice plans plus two age appropriate FUN game days for a total of 14 sessions. USA Hockey recommends that each practice plan should be instructed 3 consecutive times before moving onto the next practice plan. Each practice consists of 6 different drills working on fundamental hockey skating skills. Most practice plans will have suggestions for advanced progression for those players who develop a little faster than others. Repetition and the appropriate progression for beginners are extremely important at this level. Players should perform drills without a hockey stick during the L2S1 Curriculum, as this helps with the overall development of balance. have your coaches help these new players/families dress in all their hockey equipment. Spend 10 minutes off the ice in full gear teaching kids how to get up, stand in a hockey ready position, bend, touch toes, sit, squat, balance or skating walkers available for players who need that level of assistance. Assign a couple coaches to be in charge of these players. L2S practice plan template: Based on a 60 minute ice slot. Free Time: Length of Drills/Stations: L2S players in your program all 5 drills may be instructed in the same 3rd or 6th of the ice for the entire 40 minutes. Have water accessible in each station or area. Coach to Player Ratio: Recruit coaches, parents and student coaches to help run these practice sessions. Create more stations and safe the players will feel. A good ratio is 1 coach to 5 players. Coaches need to bring a lot of praise and enthusiasm to the L2S practices to encourage the young players!
2 LEARN TO SKATE CURRICULUM INTRODUCTION Agility: snow angles, superman, log rolls each direction, 2 foot jumps, etc. Select an agility exercise that the players can handle and progress from simple to complex over the length of the curriculum. Games: Red Light Green Light, Cops & Robbers, Clean Your Room, British Bulldog, Hand Ball Soccer, Score-O, etc. Free Time: Tools: Toy Bag: Ringette rings, soccer balls, nerf balls, softballs, tennis ball, small cones, bubbles, etc. Permanent Ice Markers. Skating Aids: Crates stacked on top of each other zip tied together, chairs, or ice skating walkers made out of PVC piping or metal. PVC piping can be purchased at any hardware store. How to make PVC walker: 1 or 2 inch diameter, approximately 14 feet of piping needed. Cut into: 3: 22 inch pieces-2 Bottom Vertical and 1 Middle Pipe 2: 17 ¼ inch-front Uprights 2: 15 inch- Bottom Horizontal 2: 8 inch-top Vertical 2: 7.5 inch-top Horizontal 8: 90 degree Elbows (4 on top & 4 on bottom) 2: Tee Connectors 22: Screws to reinforce each Elbow (2 each) and Tee Connectors (3 each) METAL WALKER PVC PIPE WALKER MILK CRATES
3 INTRODUCTION LEARN TO SKATE CURRICULUM Skates: cause players frustration if too big and pain if too small. To Properly Fit Skates: 1. Remove the insole from the skate and have the player stand on it. Make sure the heel is properly aligned with the heel of the insole. The big toe should almost reach the front edge of the insole. There should not be more than a 1/4 inch of insole showing. OR 2. Loosen the laces of the skate and insert foot pushing toes up against the toe bed. No more than one Stick Length: The stick is the next most important piece of equipment after skates. Sticks need to be cut at the appropriate height for each player. Most kids have sticks that are too long. Have players stand in skates with stick on its end in front of player. Stick should be cut at chin level. It is important to buy the players a junior stick rather than an adult stick. Hammer Grip: Hammer.
