You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
You’ll never learn to play until you take the first step onto the ice.
Ice Hockey 101 is our entry level introduction to the amazing sport of ice hockey designed to get you on the ice and having fun as soon as possible.
Ice Hockey is a great sport and involves a lifetime of learning new tips and skills. We’ve narrowed it down to the basics you’ll need to get started.
This introduction to the sport was put together by a group of former and current players which includes goalies, coaches, a referee, a minor league scout, and even a team GM. We love the sport of ice hockey and all grew up playing it. Many of us still make it part of our life and careers. We think everyone should have the opportunity to learn this great game.
So whether you have never set foot on the ice before or have been playing all your life…we hope you’ll find something here worth checking out. Even you seasoned veterans might learn something new.
Here are the chapters of our ice hockey introduction course. If you are brand new to the game, we suggest taking the time to go through all of them. But if you are here looking for something specific, feel free to skip ahead…
