Lil Canes 1 and 2

***WEBSITE UPDATED - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY***

Lil Canes 1 and Lil Canes 2

(LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY RALEIGH IN THE WAKE COUNTY AREA)


Pre-requirement - students must pass Basic 1 from our Learn to Skate program in hockey skates, complete First Goal, before participating in Lil' Canes 1.

ALL Lil Canes players will register for the same player pool. REGISTER EARLY TO LOCK IN YOUR SPOT AT YOUR PREFERRED LOCATION. Start time will be determined by the Thursday prior to the first session. Your Daysmart account will have your child's schedule along with an email that you will receive stating the assigned time.

Your evaluation does NOT need to be complete by the time of registration. PHHL director and LTP coaches will place players based on ability, progression, and available evaluation information.

This will allow the PHHL to best accurately utilize the available ice slots for LTP programming.

If your player has been recommended for Lil Canes Academy, you CAN choose to stay at the current location OR let a PHHL director know then we will move your registration to the proper location/time. If it is the time of the year, and they are recommended for the league, then we can apply LTP credit towards PHHL tuition.

After successfully completing Lil' Canes 1, skaters will progress to Little Canes 2. Both classes continue to register in the same player pool. 

Equipment Required: Full equipment is required to participate. Rental skates are included with class, however the player will have a hard time making good progress with rental skates. Click here if you need help regarding your child's hockey gear!
