Winter Small Group Training

Program Overview

As we are starting to see opportunities for younger hockey players shutting down due to Covid-19 and how this is affecting the ability for their development over the winter season,  we here at Little Twigs Hockey School, would like to offer an opportunity for these young players to receive training in a smaller group settings in hopes to lessen the spread of this virus and help protect your family.
What are we offering?
Starting in the month of December, we will be offering hour long skill clinics for the month.  These clinics will consist of 8 skaters, all the same kids, each time they are at the rink.
Who can do this sessions?
The only criteria we have for these sessions is that your hockey player has the ability to stand on their skate and move around and be in the age range from 3-6 years old.
When and where will this be offered? 
We will be offering this each week on Tuesday and Thursdays in 2 separate sessions.   Each sessions will be an hour long.  These sessions will be offered in the late afternoon, one from 1:15-2:15 pm and the other 2:15-3:15 pm.  All our sessions will be at the Eden Prairie Community Center
