Skating, Hockey Instruction Offered by P&R

KENT—The Kent Park & Recreation Learn to Skate & Hockey Development program offers instruction in the basics of ice skating and/or hockey fundamentals in a supportive environment. It begins Dec. 3 and runs through Feb. 25 and is open to children aged 2 (those younger than 4 must be accompanied by an adult) through adulthood.

The “Learn to Skate”” aspect of the program is an introduction to ice skating and is geared towards young children and those just learning how to skate. “Hockey Development” builds on the basic skating skills with more advanced drills while also beginning to incorporate the fundamentals of stick handling and puck work. Note that all skaters are assessed during the first couple of sessions and only move from “Learn to Skate” into “Hockey Development” with the approval of instructors.

Instruction is given Sundays from 8:30 to 9:30 the Kent School Ice Rink. There is no class on Christmas Eve. Helmets and skates are required.

The fee is $160 per participant with discounts available for on-ice coaches. Sign-ups and payment are taken online only. Adjustments and discounts will be applied during checkout if applicable.

Those with questions, should contact program director Lee Sohl at
