club tryouts

The Newington Arena youth learn to play hockey programs are designed around the guidelines of USA Hockey’s ADM model,
which creates a fun, relaxed learning environment for participants to learn the fundamental skills of ice hockey.  
The non-competitive and positive atmosphere not only makes a child’s first experience with hockey positive,
but also creates an environment that they can excel.  Participants will not only learn the skills and game of ice hockey,
but will also develop self-esteem and self-confidence.​The program operates under the premise that if a player’s introduction to the sport is positive,
they will develop a lifetime love of the game. Our hockey programs are taught by the Connecticut Chiefs and Central CT Youth Hockey staff,
who is comprised of USA Hockey certified coaches with an extensive playing background.‍
