Our Learn to Skate/Learn to Play Hockey is overseen by Ice Director, Mike Fountain. He is a former 17 year professional hockey player who played in the NHL, represented his country numerous times and played with the Grand Rapids Griffins for two seasons. As well as being Ice Director here at the Walker Ice and Fitness Center, he is also Hockey Director for the HAWK youth hockey association.
Learn to Skate participants will be split into different skilled groups and taught by local figure skaters and/or hockey players. All instructors are excellent at what they do and are great with the kids. Rental skates are available if needed and helmets are highly recommended.
If your son or daughter has an interest in hockey, once they get the basics of skating down, they can be moved to the Learn to Play Hockey with Mike Fountain. Full equipment is needed for Learn to Play Hockey.
