Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need to know how to skate before signing up?

We highly recommend skating lessons before joining Little Blues as it will make learning hockey focused skills such as shooting and stickhandling much easier if a child is comfortable on skates.

I was added to a waiting list during registration, what does this mean?

If you were added to our waiting list, this means our session is currently filled. Should a spot open, you will be notified. If no spots open, you will be added to the communication list for the next available session.
