Skating Programs

Learn to Skate
This program are for the floppy ankles, baby deer and banana peel steppin’ kids out there!  Come to Churchill Rink and learn to skate with ORYA.  Our program encourages young skaters to develop balance, skating muscles, falling the RIGHT way while having fun on the ice without the use of walkers or balance aids!  Participants are welcome to wear any single blade hockey or figure skates (no double runners) since they’ll be learning the basics which translates to all skating.  All participants are REQUIRED to wear a helmet and no participants, parents or guardians are allowed on the ice without skates. 

Ages | 4-12
Time | 1:00-1:50
Session 2:
Saturdays | 1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11
Cost | $125 per session 

Figure Skating:
Currently our community has not developed enough interest to offer a local figure skating program.  If you are interested in learning the art of figure skating ORYA recommends looking into what programs are offered at the Dover Ice Arena by clicking HERE.

Youth Program Information


ORYA's Intro and Recreational Hockey programs offer players the chance to learn some of the basic hockey skills in a fun and safe environment.  Evaluations will split players into Intro and Rec groups based on current ability level.  Players should participate in a learn to skate program prior to participation.

Intro to hockey players will have limited skating experience and coaches will focus on developing their passion for being on the ice, learning to skate, fall, get up and move with hockey pads and stick.  

Recreational hockey players will focus on the basic hockey skills appropriate for their level and age.  Players will be grouped with other players of similar ability for fun games, exercises, challenges, etc. This will allow coaches to focus on more specific areas of improvement while challenging each an appropriate amount. 

Both groups will utilize lots of fun equipment, games, challenges and their imagination to build skills while having as much fun as possible!
