Learn to Skate
Is the very first step in learning the basic skill needed to play hockey. This program is for children who have never skated before, or who have limited skating experience.
Learn to Play
Learn to Play is designed for young players who are looking to improve their skating and learn more about the game of hockey. This program will focus on skating skills as well as basic hockey skills such as stick handling, passing, and shooting.
Since 1969 Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey (NBYHL) has been a league that has promoted and developed the game of hockey among the youth of Northern Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and Southern Vermont. Our league has travel teams (Black Bears) for boys and girls from age 6 through high school. We also boast a learn to skate and learn to play program for ages 4-10.
The purpose of the league is to provide the best available instruction in order to teach the game of hockey, stress the importance of physical fitness, and provide the core values of USA Hockey: sportsmanship; respect for the individual; integrity; pursuit of excellence as an individual, team, and organization; enjoyment; loyalty; and teamwork.
