PrintSkating School Program
Welcome to the Guelph Minor Hockey Association (GMHA) Skating School Program.
Please read through the information provided below to aid you in making the right registration choice for your young skater/player.


Program Cost
- $395.00

Program Options
 
The GMHA Skating School offers four distinct programs for skaters/ players. 
1) Skating Skills
2) Hockey Basics
3) Hockey Prep
4) Hockey Skills
Each of  these programs are geared toward progressive development, building from one program to the next, to ensure each player continues to develop by being in the most appropriate skating/hockey environment.  A short definition is provided for each program below.

Session Format
There will be three 50 minute sessions available to enroll in, with all lessons on Saturday morning.
Within each of these three 50 minute sessions, all four of the Distinct Skating/Hockey Programs will be offered.  The rink will be sectioned off and have a dedicated station/section for each of the four programs.  Skaters/Players can progress upward into the next level program over the course of the season.

IMPORTANT:  Player to Instructor Ratio’s and Registration Instruction
Each program has a planned maximum number of registrants per 50 minute session. 
e.g. if the Player to Instructor Ratio identified is 6:1 then the plan is to register only 6 players for that 50 minute session for that specific program.  If there is stronger demand for a specific program the GMHA will maintain a waiting list and will reevaluate opening up more spots based on overall enrollment in each program.
Please ensure you identify a program you are registering for within the time slot you are choosing.
