This week saw our 1st redesigned Little Lions Hockey session and it was a success.
The new Little Lions session is designed to help children discover skated and safety equipment in their own time.
One of the biggest hurdles with younger children is having the jump from toddler skate & Play to little lions. Children were expected to be able to skate and put on all the padding and closed helmet. We found this being the biggest put off for younger children so we decided to remove them and let the children just put on a open helmet and hold a stick.
With this change we already had 2 of the children attending the session this week put skates on by the end of the session.
For Lions Inline Hockey Club we want to make hockey feel like it is a sport for everyone not just children who can skate.
We are hoping over the next few weeks it helps attract more children to come and give the sport a go and help build confidence to putting full pads and skates on.
Little Lions Inline Hockey Training is on every Saturday 10:15am until 11:15am see our events page on how to book a place or contact us via our contact us page.
