Learn to Skate & Play Registration Now Open!

Thursday, September 21, 2017, 11:07AM

Learn to Skate & Play Registration for 2017-2018 is now open!

The Learn to Skate & Play ("LTSP") program is an introduction to the sport of ice skating, with an option to learn and experience the basics of ice hockey. The aim of the program is to provide a fun environment for all participants to become capable skaters, and progress to playing hockey, if desired, at their own pace.

The LTSP program is held on Sundays, beginning Nov. 26, 2017 and running for 15 weeks through Mar. 18, 2018. No sessions will be held Dec. 24, 2017 or Dec. 31, 2017. Each session is one hour, from 11:50 AM to 12:50 AM. If an extra week is needed, i.e., due to bad weather cancellations, there will be a session on Sunday Mar. 25th, 2018.

The program runs at Hockeytown in Saugus, MA. For additional info please visit http://www.wysa.net/clinics
