We introduce full ice hockey with all the game details at the Squirt division. Players start to learn real hockey game rules, positions, game plans, patterns and such. This is not at the expense of progressing with the individual skills development which still is our main goal at the Squirt age. Young players can take an almost unlimited amount of learning at this age, and their progress is vast. We answer this with experienced coaching staff and thorough practice and game planning.
The Squirts team will play games vs other Central Park based teams, as well as against more competitive select teams, both at Lasker Rink, and in the nearby tri-state area (within 1-hour drive time).
