STEP 1 - All Ages

In order to join the Junior Jackets hockey classes, the player must be able to skate fluently (NO MARCHING) on their own in hockey skates. This is typically achieved upon completion of a Basic 2 or Stinger 2 class.

These advanced level classes are 50 minutes in length and focus on stick-handling, passing, shooting and team play. Participants must have basic skating skills and are required to wear hockey gear (see list below)

STEP 3 - Ages 6-Adult
HOUSE LEAGUES

When a player is ready to graduate from Junior Jackets to a house hockey team, there are three great organizations endorsed by the Chiller Ice Rinks.  These volunteer-run  hockey associations are based at the Chiller facilities, and work closely with us to provide the best experience for our players and families.
