The Youth Ice Hockey Programs at Riverbank State Park offer the most affordable introduction to and training in recreational ice hockey in New York City. For the 2013-2014, program fees are $212-$247 for the entire winter season from November 12th through March 17th. There are 3 practice sessions a week for 1 hour and a half for mites, squirts, pee wees, bantams, midgets and girls. Games are played on Saturdays and/or Sundays. One weekend practice day will be used for games during the game season so the ratio of practices to games is 2:1. Coaches provide structured training and drills for all levels of ability in both recreational and competitive hockey. Coaches encourage individual development, teamwork and foster a natural, healthy competitive spirit that comes from within.
Fun and excitement is always a part of all that is done. This season, we will have focused skill sessions to improve skating, stick handling, passing, and shooting for players needing both remediation and development.
Finally, all are welcome! We have a diverse group of participating parents and children who love the sport. The games are exciting for the parents as well as the children. Try out one season of ice hockey at Riverbank State Park to see if your child loves to move and fly over the ice. Register now!
