Start your child's hockey experience with the AHYHA Junior Huskies program. Junior Huskies provides a fun, friendly environment for your child to try the great sport of hockey! We offer two levels, Beginner and Advanced, with sessions in both the Fall and Winter.
Junior Huskies Beginner Course
The Junior Huskies Beginner course is designed for children age 3-6, with little or no experience, who are not quite ready to skate independently. This course is ideal for anyone who has gone through the ACC Learn to Skate program, and needs additional practice skating or is looking to learn hockey specific basic skills. Walkers are not provided for assistance. Sessions last 30-40 minutes, and include professional instruction in group settings. Sessions focus on basic skating fundamentals, confidence building and fun games. Upon completion, participants should be ready for Junior Huskies Advanced.
The Beginner program works best for a participant when a parent or guardian has provided some one-on-one experience prior to registration.
Junior Huskies Advanced Course
The Junior Huskies Advanced course is designed for children age 4-8, who can skate independently without assistance. This course is ideal for kids who have gone through Junior Huskies Beginners. Professional instruction is provided in group settings. Sessions will focus on skating exercises that build edge work, basic hockey fundamentals and games. Upon completion of Junior Huskies Advanced, participants should be ready for the AHYHA Mite/8U program.
All sessions are held at the Andover Community Center. For both programs your child will need ice skates to participate and will provide the rest of the equipment for loan at no cost (you will put a $150 deposit down at the beginning that you will get returned to you at the end when you return the equipment). All kids will get a jersey and hockey stick that they get to keep!
