After his retirement from active hockey, Sergei became a hockey director/coach and has been coaching various hockey players including players from the National Hockey League along with being involved in youth hockey for 9 years. Sergei’s goal is to develop as many quality youth hockey skaters as possible and to make sure that every time they are stepping on the ice for practice they are having fun.
All Little Leaf Players must register with USA Hockey..
Learn to Skate skaters should wear long pants, warm jackets or heavy sweaters, mittens or gloves and thin socks, helmets and elbow pads. Please, no tight jeans or bulky snow pants. Pre-Hockey skaters must wear full hockey equipment.
Rentals are available for Pre-Hockey 1. A rent to own option is also available at that level.
If this is your first time skating, it is best to rent skates for the first session or two. Rental skates are available for $4.00 per class, or the skater may purchase a discount punch card for $20.00 for ten (10) rentals. One pair of thin socks is all that is needed. Double runner skates are not allowed for Skate School classes. When you are ready to purchase a pair of skates, be sure to check with one of our staff for information. As in any sport, good equipment is important to learning skating skills. Cheap skates, purchased at discount stores, will make it hard for the skater to learn!
