So Your Kid Wants to Play Ice Hockey - Where Do You Start?
Make sure they like to skate, because as a hockey player they are going to be doing lots of skating. The Bowie Ice Rink offers public sessions throughout the year. Bring your child and some of their friends to a couple of public sessions to see if they like skating, they might actually bump into some of the hockey players.
Once your child has decided he wants to learn how to play hockey start them off with lessons at the Bowie Ice Rink. The Bowie Ice Rink offers many ISIA group lessons for all levels of skating including the Alpha/Beta programs. To see all of the programs offered by the Bowie Ice Rink go to the Bowie Ice Rink website.
When your child has learned the basics of skating the Bowie Hockey Club offers the “Future Bruins Instructional” program.
