Learn to inline skate

This is a co-sponsored program. To learn more, visit the program’s website: Caps Youth Hockey


The Learn to Inline Skate program offers free inline skating clinics to kids ages 5-17. This program is designed for first-time skaters. Participants will receive age-appropriate introductory instruction on the fundamentals of hockey skating and power-skating in order to be more proficient and agile on the rink. The focus is on developing proper techniques with all instruction being conducted without a puck. Fundamentals that will be taught include basic hockey stance, stride, knee bend, control on edges, and other necessary elements needed to be a successful skater. Participants will be able to borrow all necessary protective equipment (helmet, elbow pads, gloves, knee pads, and skates) for the clinic. All equipment will be returned to the Capitals after each clinic.
