PROGRAM DETAILS

        The 2021 "Pepsi Kids" TEAM program will begin on Sunday January 17, 2021 with our Evaluation Sessions** @ LEISURE RINKS for our 2 Age Divisions (4-8) & (9-13).  The program is a terrific introduction to the fundamentals of ice hockey and team play. This program is designed for those skaters who have attended 1 or 2 of our NEW ERA  Beginner Hockey Clinics or are able to skate on their own without the aid of a "walker". All participants will receive a total of 14 ice sessions and a FREE Pepsi Kids TEAM Jersey with Matching Socks & Player Name.

        The program will include practice sessions and 1/2 Ice games. Skating instruction, as well as basic positioning and team strategy, will be covered. Coaches are on the ice during all games. This is a FUN program where winning is NOT emphasized.  Practices and Games will be played at BOTH Holiday Twin Rinks and Leisure Rinks.

  • The program also includes (3) FUN "Tournament Games" at the end of the season.  
  • Plus a Kids vs Parents Final game with a FREE Team Pizza Party to follow!

**Evaluation Session: The first session will be an evaluation session where all players will be rated A, B or C liners and then assigned to teams. This will create balanced play as during games "A" lines will compete vs. "A" lines and "B" vs. "B" etc.
