Learn to Ice Skate or Play Hockey
The Mosinee Hockey Club (MHC) would like to invite you to join our 2023-2024 Learn To Skate (LTS) Program. Whether your family has been involved with hockey for years or you’re new to the sport, we’re sure you may have some questions.
What is “Learn to Skate”?
Mosinee Hockey Club offers skating lessons that provide the fundamentals for figure skating, hockey and recreational skating. Additionally, MHC provides helmets, gloves, knee and elbow pads so that your child learns in a safe, secure way.
Who is LTS for?
Learn To Skate is open to any child (both boys and girls) residing in the Mosinee School district that are 3 years old and above (birth year 2020). Also open to Edgar, Stratford and Marathon.
What will the kids learn?
In addition to the basic skills of skating (stopping, proper gliding, turning, how to fall without injury, backward skating, etc.) your child will learn the basics of hockey including: beginning passing and shooting drills, skating with the puck and a variety of fun filled activities.
What is the cost?
First time participating in LTS:
- $50 for age 3-6
- $66 for ages 7 or older
Second or third year in LTS:
- $75 regardless of age
You are also expected to assist the MHC in its fundraising efforts by volunteering in the hockey rink concession stand (or other available volunteer opportunities) and by selling five $20 raffle tickets.
How does MHC cost compare to other skating lessons?
Other associations offer introduction skating lessons at $40 for approximately 8-one hour sessions. MHC offers approximately 10-15 lessons for $50 and let you borrow most of the equipment.
In Learn to Skate, you will need to purchase a very minimal amount of “gear” for your skater including:
- Hockey skates
- Mouth guard
- An inexpensive hockey
We also have sticks they can borrow if you can’t afford a stick)
When are practices?
Practices run on Sundays from 4-5 p.m. and will begin in November. The schedule will be posted once the season starts.
Equipment handout will be before the first practice. The date and time will be communicated once the practice schedule is set. There will also be a parent meeting scheduled in November.
How do I sign up?
Registration will be online from July 1 - August 15, 2023.
