learn to play 2.0
Learn to Play (LTP) 2.0 is designed for boys and girls ages 4 to 14 years old who can skate on their own comfortably but need some additional skill and skating work.
Each 6-week session is just $125. Participants may repeat LTP 2.0 multiple times if necessary. These classes are perfect for Learn to Play graduates who aren’t quite ready for house league or simply older skaters who would like some more time and instructions.
Full hockey equipment is required; skate rental options are available if needed.
Your child must have some skating experience prior to joining this class. Cool Sports requires a “Learn to Skate” class or “Learn to Play” class as a prerequisite for joining if you have no prior experience in order to maximize development and enjoyment.
Cool Sports will accept new players into this program at any time on a drop-in basis numbers permitting also, please email us for details.

Learn To Play Frequently Asked Questions
I signed up for hockey classes, why don’t we play hockey when we start the program?
Because it’s really hard to play hockey if you can’t skate.
What do we wear for the first session?
Please wear warm clothes. Long sleeves, long pants and gloves or mittens and a helmet (bike helmets are perfect). Cool Sports will provide rental skates for the first few sessions while kids are waiting for their gear to be delivered.
When do I get our hockey equipment?
Equipment ordering links will be distributed during the first week of classes from PURE HOCKEY. Equipment is delivered to your home.
My son/daughter has no skating experience, do they need to take a skating class first?
NO. While a skating class is recommended, it is not required. We spend the first 4 weeks of the program doing a multitude of skating work to get the players mobile and comfortable on the ice.
