Youth and Adult Hockey

Have you or your child considered playing Ice Hockey? Now is the perfect time to get started!

Skating Classes:  Skating is the foundation of hockey, and is the most important skill to focus on when beginning your hockey adventure!  Tidewater Skating Academy will prepare you to start on your path to joining the team.  Click below to register.  If you have never taken skating lessons before, you should register for Basic 1 or Snowplow Sam depending on the skater’s age.  All skaters will be assessed as soon as they step on the ice, and if someone needs to move up the coaches will send them to the correct level.  If you have taken skating lessons before, you can contact TSA through their website and ask what level to register for.  


Hockey Academy for Kids:  Academy is your next step to joining the team!  Children who can skate forward, backward, and stop can join the program.  This 18 week program is designed to give your child the skills they will need to join the team in the fall.  Each 90 minute session consists of skating lessons, skills drills, and small area games.  Participants should be able to skate forward and backward, and stop before registering (you can be taking skating lessons at the same time as participating in Academy).  Full gear is required, and we do have gear lending options on a first come first served basis.  If you have any questions at all about the gear required, please don’t hesitate to ask! 

Keep your skill sharp during the off season!  We have Spring Development, Summer Skills, and Hockey camps available!  Click below for days/times. 

Travel Tryouts will be held at the Chesapeake location.  Please click the Whaler Nation button below for more info. 

Fall Season Rec League is open for enrollment as well.  Please see the WN Rec page at the Whaler Nation Hockey link below.

An active USA Hockey number is required for all skaters.  Please click the link below to register your skater for their USA Hockey number and send it to before the start of the program.

Adult Hockey Skills and Leagues

We have options for every skill level!

Beginners:  Both group and private skating lessons are available, and we offer Adult Learn to Play programs to get you ready to join a team!  You should be able to skate forward, backward, and stop before joining a learn to play program.  Please click the button near the top of the page for more info on skating lessons.  We will be starting our next Adult Learn to Play programs mid to late April.  Please email the director at the email address below for more info.

Experienced players:  You should choose a league based on your skill level and sign up today! Players new to Chilled Ponds at Yorktown should expect to attend an evaluation so we can ensure you are in the appropriate league.
