Learn to Skate/Learn to Play

Registration for this Program for the 2017-18 Season  is now closed.


Lincoln Youth Hockey Association's (LIHA) Learn to Skate/Learn to Play Program (LTS/LTP) is designed for beginners from age 4 and up. 

The program provides the opportunity for all boys and girls to learn the basics of ice skating and basic hockey skills, in a SAFE and FUN environment.  When you sign up for the Learn to Skate/Learn to Play, you will be in a program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development.  Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches provide active skating sessions using teaching aids and a wide variety of games and activities that create a fun environment and promote learning.  

Registration is now open for the 2017-2018 season. The LTS program will be capped at 70 skaters, and registration closes on Sept. 7th. Players enrolled in the LTS skate program will receive full loaner equipment and will be automatically enrolled in the winter hockey program at their age group for NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.

At $295, including all equipment, the LTS program, and the full season hockey registration, this is the best deal in hockey!
