Can I get loaner equipment/skates?
Loaner equipment and skates are available on a first come, first serve basis. We have 30 sets of loaner equipment and have yet to run out during a session. The equipment is donated by previous players that have outgrown the pads. They are sorted and selected, keeping only the best lightly used equipment. We have a limited number of skates from kids sizes 8-13. We can also arrange skate rentals through the rink if necessary. Contact
for any questions or advice on equipment.

- LTS: Hockey helmet with cage; Knee pads; Elbow pads; Skates; Hockey Gloves / Snow Gloves (non-absorbent); hockey pants are recommended, but not required

Can I sign up for multiple classes per session?
Yes. Skaters often sign up for a combination of Learn to Skate and Little Demons Hockey!
Can I come on the ice?
Yes. On ice helpers or coaches must possess adequate skating ability for the safety of the players and yourself. We offer two options; On Ice Parent/Helper or Development Assistants. An On Ice Parent/Helper may help their skater one on one during the class. Development Assistants are responsible for running drills and helping a group of skaters. Development Assistants receive free tuition for their help. Contact
for more info.
Per USA Hockey - anyone on the ice (coach, player, volunteer) must be registered with USA Hockey
Can my player try a class for free?
Yes. This is a common question for players looking to start LTS or thinking about making the move to LDH. The best way to determine if you player is ready is to try out the next level.
I signed up for LTS/LDH but want to switch program, can I?
Yes. We are flexible in our registration and want to ensure the best possible experience for all players.
Can I get a refund for unused classes?
No. If you miss a class, you are welcome to attend another class during a following session. If that is not an option, we may apply a credit to your account for future use.
