Fast and Fun

Since 1987, our internationally recognized Hockey Director, Sylvain Turcotte, has built our hockey program into one of the strongest in the area. Sylvain and his staff take special joy in sharing their enthusiasm for the game with their students and feel rewarded as they see their students progress from the fundamentals of the game to the teamwork necessary for success in hockey as well as in life. Sylvain particularly enjoys working with very young skaters and is also gratified to see a growing number of girls in our area taking up the sport.

Getting StartedIntroduction to Hockey

To provide 3-10 year olds with a chance to try hockey without committing to a full session, the Glenview Ice Center offers sessions of three to four 30-minute classes called “Intro to Development Hockey” several times a year. These sessions cost only $15 and include a helmet, skates, stick and instruction. Our next session of Intro to Development Hockey will be offered in Fall 2014.

The Next StepDevelopment Hockey Classes

Once your child has an interest in hockey, they can sign up for full sessions of Development Hockey Lessons which are offered several times a year for children ages 3-10. For information on our next session of Development Hockey Lessons, click here.
