Austin Future Stars

Starting March 2019


The Austin Metro Hockey Association and The Pond Hockey Club would like to introduce the Austin Future Stars program!  

This new program is designed to introduce your child to the sport of hockey and ice skating to see if they want to continue taking lessons and learning the game.

 

Kids will participate in four 30 minute long lessons. Participants get to borrow hockey gear and ice skates while they participate. Each child will get their own hockey jersey to keep following the class.

 

The first session starts on Saturday, March 2nd.

Youth Hockey Progression

Learning How To Ice Skate

Learning to ice skate is not easy. It usually takes patience. Wearing "full gear" aka hockey equipment is highly recommended.

Learning How To Play Hockey

Learn-to-Play programs focus on skating skills, but also teach the basic skills of stickhandling, shooting, and passing.

Youth Hockey Academy

For players that are almost ready to join a recreational league.

Austin Metro Hockey League

For players that have learned the basic hockey skills, joining a team in a recreational or "house" league is the next step. Get information on the Austin Metro Hockey League here --> www.AustinMetroHockey.org

USA Hockey Says Come Play

More than a Game
Hockey develops skills on the ice that build a foundation for a lifetime. In addition to athletic prowess, hockey promotes confidence, pride, focus and responsibility. With an emphasis on fun, hockey is a game to be played and enjoyed for life.

Life-long Friendships
Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on ice, hockey creates life-long friendships. This camaraderie shared on and off the ice encourages teamwork and the natural development of leadership skills.
