Join us for a fun-filled winter while learning to skate and developing hockey skating skills. The Learn to Skate Level One-Earn Your Stick take to the ice in 45-minute sessions. Skaters work on their skill progression at their own speed with many volunteers on the ice to help them along. Once a skater has passed our Level One testing, they progress throughout levels two through four, before becoming active in Owatonna Youth Hockey Association traveling hockey.
A helmet is required for everyone on the ice. An entire bag of protective equipment is available for rent through the Owatonna Youth Hockey Association rental program for $50 per year. Skates can be leased at Straight River Sports for an entire season for a reasonable cost.
Equipment rental is available in August during registration. Registration is also available at the Owatonna Park and Recreation Office.
