The IYHA Jr Fuel offers Learn to Play Hockey group hockey classes are designed for first-time players* between the ages of 4 - 17. Players will learn the fundamentals of stickhandling, advanced skating skills, and scoring the game winning goals!
Our station-based format gives players the opportunity to learn the necessary skills in a safe and competitive environment. The action-packed practices keep the kids moving, engaged, and excited to back to the rink every week!
Each class starts with a 10-minute group warm-up with the whole class. Players are then divided into 4 groups based on age/skill level. Players will rotate through 4 stations every 10 minutes:
The last 5 - 7 minutes will be a group game of either Torpedo Alley or Sharks and Minnows for all players to participate. This is always a fun activity for the kids, coaches, and the parents!
*If your child has never skated before, STOP HERE and email LTPH Director, Barb Laughner, to identify which class to register: email@example.com
Classes are offered on Sundays at the Fuel Tank and the cost is $25/class. You can pick just one class or register for multiple classes each month.

IYHA Jr Fuel Families - we have been very fortunate over the years to have an equipment room for both players and goalies at the Carmel Ice Skadium. These rooms are stocked by your continuous and generous donations, for which we are immensely grateful.
However, the state of the players' equipment room (next to the IYHA office) is often in disarray. This makes for a very negative first impression when trying to fit new players for our Lids Learn to Play Hockey program. Additionally, it makes for a very frustrating experience when trying to move around to locate a piece of equipment and/or exchange a piece of equipment.
We ask everyone to please be mindful of the time and effort required to keep this room organized. If you need to borrow or exchange equipment, please take your time searching. If you see something on the floor, please pick it up and put it in the correct bin. Thank you in advance for you attention to this matter and for your help.
Let's give a BIG round of applause to 12U Black player, Jameson Michaud, for the latest cleanup of the equipment room. It looks amazing, don't you think? Now, let's keep it that way!
