Beginner Hockey - Starts October 20

The Canandaigua Knights Beginner Hockey program starts Saturday, October 20 and runs through December 15, 2018 (note: no session held November 24).  Participants will be on the ice from 9:00-9:50 a.m. For children not able to start on October 20, we ask that parents register now and join us when you can.  Cost:  $80    (Players also need to register with USA Hockey to obtain USA hockey registration number. This number is required to complete Canandaigua Knights beginner hockey registration.)

Beginner Hockey is a learn to skate program that transitions into beginner hockey for girls and boys ages 4-9. No experience is necessary. Jersey and hockey stick will be provided. You must provide: skates and mouth guard. Skates, while supplies last, can be rented at the Canandaigua Civic Center or new/used skates can be purchased for a nominal fee at various stores.

Other hockey equipment needed: helmet, gloves, shin guards and elbow pads.  These items are available for loan on a first come, first served basis and can be borrowed for a $80 refundable deposit due at time of pick-up. More information on borrowing equipment will be sent to registrants prior to October 20.

Register by clicking on the Register Online link on the left side of this page.  We look forward to seeing you in October!

Have Fun!  Build Confidence!  Play Hockey!

 

Listed below are common questions related to beginner hockey:

Can my child participate with no/little skating experience?  Absolutely.  Children who participate in beginner hockey have varying levels of skating experience. 

What equipment is required?   You must provide: skates and mouth guard. Other hockey equipment needed: helmet, gloves, shin guards and elbow pads.  These items are available for loan on a first come, first served basis and can be borrowed for a $80 refundable deposit due at time of pick-up. A jersey and hockey stick will be provided to all beginner skaters.

Note: Skates rented at the rink need to be returned after each session, so the skates are available for other young skaters during the week.

Can my child use figure skates?  No, coaches ask that all beginners have hockey skates.  Bring your own or rent from the Greater Canandaigua Civic Center, while supplies last. For those planning to bring their own, new/used skates can be purchased for a nominal fee at various stores. 

What skate size should my child get?  This depends on the brand.  Typically it is 1-2 sizes smaller than shoe size. Greater Canandaigua Civic Center staff can help with fitting on rentals and most retailers can offer fitting assistance. We recommend this before purchase.

Do skates need to be sharpened?  If you have purchased new/used skates for your child, they will need to be sharpened. This can be done at the rink for a nominal fee.

Can I go on ice with skaters

We welcome volunteers who have played hockey or can skate. Requirements to do so include: helmet, skates and completing the Meghan’s Law screening on-line (see link below).  There is a $25 fee for this screening. The certificate of completion must be handed to a Canandaigua Knights Board representative before you can get on ice.  NYSAHA/USA Hockey Background Screening (On-line) - Also known as Meghan's Law: www.commercialinvestigationsllc.com/vssnysaha

What is the $80 registration fee used for?  Canandaigua Knights Hockey is run by many volunteers.  The money collected is primarily used for the cost of the ice and equipment.

 

Other helpful tips:

  • Plan to arrive at least 25 minutes early to dress your child in the hockey equipment, unless they come to rink dressed, to ensure they get on the ice on time.

  • Loose fitting pants are recommended (sweats/PJ bottoms ).You want pants to fit over shin guards. This makes it easier for skater to stand…plastic shin guards are very slippery on ice.

  • We recommend you take the equipment out of the bag to dry when you get home each week.

  • We’ve been asked where children can get additional ice time to improve their skating.The Greater Canandaigua Civic Center (gccc.org) offers open skate times to the public. See their website for details.
