Learn to Play Hockey

The Fuel Tank at Fishers currently offers Learn to Play Hockey classes. These are for those interested in learning to play the sport who already know how to skate. For those who do not yet feel comfortable ice skating, beginning with a Learn to Skate class is HIGHLY recommended. 

Hockey 1, Hockey 2, and Learn to Play Hockey for Adult Beginners are offered. All participants must register online, regardless of payment options. 
 

Hockey 1 is for skaters aged 6 to 18. Skaters should have a basic skill level and knowledge base of how to ice skate. This class will teach skaters how to skate in full hockey equipment. Skaters will learn basic stick handling, passing, and shooting skills. They will be taught the basics of power skating, with a focus on edgework, stride, and crossovers.

Hockey 2 is for skaters aged 6 to 18. Skaters should have a basic skill level and knowledge base of how to ice skate. Hockey 2 builds on the foundations taught in Hockey 1. Skaters will focus on advanced passing, shooting, and stick handling skills. Skaters will work on basic positional and situational systems.

Adult Learn to Play Hockey for Beginners is for adults and young adults. Skaters should have a basic skill level and knowledge base of how to ice skate. This class will teach adult skaters how to skate in full hockey equipment. Skaters will learn basic stick handling, passing, and shooting skills. They will be taught the basics of power skating, with a focus on edgework, stride, and crossovers. 

All classes are taught in full gear. Skaters may provide their own equipment. Fuel Tank at Fishers also offers hockey bag rental for a $25 fee per session. These bags can be rented at the facility. Please be aware that sizes and availability are limited. Rented hockey bags do not include jerseys or socks, both of which are required gear. They can be purchased at the Pro Shop, or the skater can provide their own.
