NEXT STEPS

If your child is finishing up with our current learn to skate program or a similar program elsewhere, it’s time to think about moving them to the next level! Once a child graduates from the Sparty Learn 2 Skate program, they are encouraged to take the next steps in our Intro 2 Hockey Camp, which takes place at both the Bell Sensplex & Richcraft Sensplex. The Intro 2 Hockey program is quite simply the best way to introduce little ones to the world’s greatest game!
