2019-2020 Learn To Skate

Welcome to the Berkshire Rattlers Youth Hockey Online Registration Database. This registration is for the Learn to Skate Program 2019-2020. You will be required to enter a valid USA Hockey confirmation number during the process, which will confirm that the player is registered with USA Hockey. Go to www.usahockeyregistration.com.

NOTE: There are no USA Hockey or Affiliate fee for registrants age 6 (2013 birth year) or younger,
but registration is still required.

Our Learn To Skate program (ages 4-7) is an ideal way to introduce your youngster to ice skating. This program will consist of on-ice sessions with the primary focus being that of developing an interest in on-ice activities with the possible future migration into an organized ice hockey program. This program is primarily for non-skaters and offers the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of basic skating under the guidance of seasoned coaches. Come have fun on the ice and learn such concepts as balance, stability and confidence.

The following protective equipment is required for all participants:

Helmet, Neck guard, Shoulder Pads, Elbow Pads, Gloves, Pants, Shin Guards and Skates. We highly recommend mouth guards and athletic cups to all skaters.

Please note that there will be circumstances where a Learn to Skate Participant will be ready for the challenges of skating with the Mite team. When this is the case, the Learn to Skate coach will make the request to the parents of that child. If this happens before December 31st, there will be an additional charge of $250.00 or $150.00 if the change is in January. These fees will cover the additonal cost of ice time and events attended.

We will again offer a more structured lesson plan/learn to play scenario for the more advanced skaters.
