Registration is under way for Rockford Park Districts Junior and Senior IceHogs summer ice hockey lessons for participants ages 2-adult. Chair Hockey helps children develop confidence on the ice by using chairs to help with balance. Rink Rats is for beginners with good balance, who will learn the basic hockey skating skills needed to progress to the Ter-mites program, where students learn fundamentals of the game. Learn to Play Hockey classes are offered for youth ages 8-17 and 18-adult. Power Skating for ages 8-adult helps hockey skaters strengthen their skills.
