This is a unique program in Rochester that offers kids a great opportunity to find out if hockey is for them!

Our Overage Beginners program is open to boys and girls, ages 9-16, who want to learn the fundamental skills needed to play on a team. Our entire season is focused on having fun and developing hockey skills. Players who graduate from our Overage Beginners program move on to participate in our Travel, House or Girls Program depending on their skills and desired level of commitment to the game.
