* Please note: This is a "learn to skate" program for girls hockey. Girls will wear full hockey gear.
* Equipment provided including sticks. NO SKATES are provided. Make sure your daughter’s skates are sharpened and ready to go for the first session.
*If you are confused about how the equipment goes on, just ask, someone will be willing to help you out.
*Please bring a water bottle for your daughter – one that she can sip from (long nozzle) or squirt through her facemask on her helmet (so coaches & volunteers aren’t buckling and unbuckling helmets all session. It should be clearly marked with your daughter’s name for her to find.
*As a help for instructors, please write your daughter's name on some tape on her helmet. Addressing the girls by name really improves their experience.
*For Learn to Skate participants, you may supply your own skating aids. However, the goal will be to get these girls skating independently as soon as possible.
VOLUNTEER instructors are an integral part of this program.
Non-participants will not be allowed on the ice without being a registered volunteer. This requirement is due to safety and insurance concerns. To be on the ice, you must be wearing skates and a helmet.
Current Waterloo Ravens players are encouraged to volunteer!
