In-House Hockey

In House Hockey is the third step in youth hockey. Participants must complete the Learn to Skate Hockey and Learn to Play Hockey to be eligible for in House. In House is broken down into two or three age/ skill level groups depending on enrollment. Age and skill specific practices are instructed by an impressive staff of USA Hockey Certified coaches. Coaches will introduce team play and stress foundation skills to the newer players, while situational play and individual skills are the focus for older players.

Whether your child is new to hockey, or has been playing travel hockey for years, In House is always a good option for honing skills and continuing to learn the game. Practices are held every Tuesday, with USA Hockey recommended cross ice games every Friday. All participants will receive their very own In House jersey and an S&T Bank Arena value card. The value card can be used for free admission to public skate or free skate sharpening.
