Learn to Skate

The focus of Danvers Youth Hockey's Learn to Skate (LTS) programs are designed to teach beginner hockey players the fundamentals of skating. LTS will focus on basic skating skills that will form the foundation for a great hockey player in the future. But above all, we strive to ensure all kids are having fun and love being on the ice!


LTS is designed for kids 8 & under.


Throughout the hockey season (September through April) DYH has approximately 3 sessions of Learn to Skate. Each session is about 10 times on the ice.


Typically Learn to Skate is held at Essex Sports Center 15 Manning Road Middleton.


LTS is held once a week.
