    2020-2021 Learn to Skate and Learn to Play

    The 2020-21 hockey season is a challenging one on multiple fronts.  Health concerns are the top priority, and as such the maximum number of skaters that can share the ice has been reduced by the local Board of Health.  Reducing the number of skaters on the ice creates an ice time shortage that ABYHA must deal with across the full program.

    ABYHA’s Learn to Play and Learn to Skate programs have thrived based on a financial model where we are able to provide a great experience for our younger skaters at a low cost by maximizing ice time utilization.  This is not possible in the current environment without making some adjustments to our beginner programs.

    Learn to Skate (LTS)

    To ensure we can help usher in a new group of strong skaters into the game of hockey and hopefully our ABYHA program, we’ve decided to partner with our friends at the Nashoba Skating school for Learn to Skate lessons.  For the past two seasons we’ve had great success with the skating school instructors teaching our ABYHA Learn to Skate. 

    While many of the Nashoba skating instructors come from a figure skating background, they have expertise in all the required hockey skating skills.  The Nashoba LTS program follows the national “Learn to Skate USA” curriculum, which is endorsed by USA Hockey for those who want to eventually become hockey players.

    This year we’ll increase this partnership and will be referring our “future hockey players” to them directly for their LTS program.  Those interested in Learn to Skate are recommended to get more info and register via the Nashoba website, https://skatenashoba.com/pages/skatingclasses.learntoskate.  

    Learn to Play (LTP)

    We are committed to offering an LTP program this year, but will need to delay the program’s start until December.  We do appreciate your patience as we figure out what this program will look like this season and want to make sure we’re able to deliver a fantastic experience for kids who are interested in learning to play hockey.

    More information to follow on our website, www.abyha.org as the details are worked out.
