Individual hockey lessons can be taken during Germain Arena’s Stick N Puck sessions. All hockey players must wear full equipment on the ice and bring their own stick. Germain Arena provides the nets and pucks for the skaters to practice with. During this time period a coach may accompany the player out on the ice for private instruction. Each instructor must be contacted ahead of time. The player is responsible for both the ice cost and coaching fee. For times and dates please see the Stick N Puck schedule. If a group setting is more desired please look into Germain’s Learn to Play classes.
