Youth Ice Hockey – It’s Fast and it’s Fun

It’s a game you can play for a lifetime …watch this story…. 

So…..Let’s Play Some Hockey… Port Washington Style!

Port Washington Style is youth ice hockey for the fun of it.  Our skaters love the sport because they are all given a chance to learn, play, and succeed – no matter what their level of skill may be. Players are able to skate and compete in situations that promote improvement — resulting in their being happy, enthusiastic and motivated to continue to get better.

Getting Started …
Here’s where the hockey fun begins for you and your children….All of our most skilled players started out in our hockey clinics learning the basics.

Why are players so enthusiastic ?  First, the nature of hockey – a sport that keeps kids active for the whole time they are involved. Kids have a chance to improve and succeed without any pressure or the feeling of failure.  Our coaches provide an atmosphere of fun and encouragement that is conducive to success.  Most of our players continue to play through High School and even college – whether varsity, club teams, or pick up games.

The beginner hockey clinic is intended for  players  with limited hockey experience.  Players should have some basic skating skills.  Those who have never skated should enroll for classes in our Skating School to get going on ice before attempting the hockey clinic. Skills focus on forward and backward skating, stopping, proper body positioning, basic stick handling and passing.  Your child will have fun while improving skills!  

Basic Hockey Equipment you’ll want…

  • Helmet with shield
  • Gloves
  • Elbow Pads
  • Shin Pads
  • Stick
  • Shoulder pads and hockey pants .

No Equipment ?? No Problem !

If you do not have equipment, we have a supply of “Loaner Equipment” that you can borrow to use in our clinics for free.  You will get a designated bag of hockey equipment to use any time you are at the rink. We strongly suggest, however, that you purchase your own helmet and stick.

The players are starting to look like players as their skills and hockey sense improve.  This clinic is great for the slightly older and more experienced skater – typically playing in the House League or on a Middle School team.  Players begin to focus on puck skills and are introduced to the competitive aspects of the sport.

Intermediate hockey is intended for players with 2+ years of hockey experience. Skills taught include forward & backward crossovers, pivoting, lateral starts/stops, stickhandling moves, passing and shooting.

Each Session (Fall and Winter)  consists of 14 one-hour classes.  There is an added session that continues through the Spring.

House League Overview

Our House League teaches the game of hockey and develops the understanding of hockey rules, position play, teamwork, sportsmanship – and above all, just having fun!

While competition is a natural part of any sport, our emphasis is on skill development and establishing respect for opponents and the game itself.

Evaluations are held before teams are formed for our Fall/Winter,  Spring, and Summer House leagues.

These evaluations:

  • Encourage the formation of evenly skilled teams
  • Give the prospective players the confidence that they can be successful playing in the league
  • Allow players “on the cusp” to select the proper group to play with

Spring House League:

Spring House League Evaluations – Sunday, March 19, 2017.

The Spring League includes a dedicated practice day for each team  along with games on the weekend. Teams are formed in two divisions with players divided by age and ability. The schedule is set up to avoid conflicts with most outdoor sports. Clinics and games start March 20.  The season concludes with the “Clash of the Creatures” mini-tournament in June.  MORE INFO
