GSC Program Registrations

REGISTRATIONS FOR ALL HOCKEY PROGRAMS ARE OPEN

 

MINI MITES, OUTDOOR HOCKEY LEAGUE JUNIORS/ BOYS & GIRLS CLUB MITE HOUSE LEAGUE,

OUTDOOR HOCKEY LEAGUE SENIORS (formerly GSC House League), and the new CARDINAL ROAD HOCKEY LEAGUE.

 

Mini Mites (formerly beginner hockey): 4-7 year olds

  • This program welcomes first time hockey players and is designed to teach the fundamentals of skating and an introduction to the game of hockey. It is intended for players who can skate forward on their own. The kids will work on basic skating skills (edge work, stopping, cross-overs and backward skating) as well as introduction to the basics of hockey such as passing, shooting, and stick handling. 

Outdoor Hockey League Juniors/ Boys & Girls Club Mite House League Combined: 6–10 year olds

  • This year we will launch the new Outdoor Hockey League at GSC, expanding the traditional house league to include 6-9 year olds, called the Outdoor Hockey League Juniors.
  • The Mite House League is based at the Greenwich Boys and Girls Club rink facility.  The Boys and Girls Club has a league set up for 6-7 year olds and one for 8-10 year olds. Each week the B&G Mite House League participants will have one weekly instructional practice and one game on Sunday afternoons at B&G club. In addition, for GSC members, players will be included in the inaugural Outdoor Hockey League Juniors, who will also have practice/skills session at GSC on Saturdays along with periodic morning skills sessions during the season. 

Outdoor Hockey League Seniors: 9-14 years olds

  • Outdoor Hockey League – Saturday and Sunday afternoons (plus periodic weekday am skills sessions)
  • The Outdoor Hockey League is the core of the club, where the spirit of inclusiveness and competition are combined. The OHL is where everyone can come out and play, have fun, and compete.  It is designed to be super inclusive and is now open to all skaters ages 6-14 years old (except Travel A and A1 skaters—but come cheer us on!)  We encourage skaters of all abilities to participate.  We will also pay special attention to girls and boys new to hockey to ensure that their experience will be fantastic.  

Cardinal Road Hockey League: old to even older

  • The goal of the Cardinal Road Hockey League is to allow members of various skill to enjoy (competitive) hockey at the Greenwich Skating Club. We will play twice a week at GSC. Teams will be selected at the beginning of the year through a draft, where we mix players of different skill levels, with the idea being that lines would be matched against similar caliber players during a game.

Cardinal Road Hockey League

 

Cardinal Road Hockey League

Goal:

The goal of the Cardinal Road Hockey League is to allow members of various skill to enjoy (competitive) hockey at the Greenwich Skating Club.

Structure:

Numbers / interest will obviously dictate the size of the league, but teams of 20ish will be assembled through a draft process prior to the start of the season scheduled for 7:00pm, October 30th @ GSC. Players will be responsible for classifying themselves as A, B or C players prior to the draft. A players are defined as: played in college (or the pros), B players are defined as: played in high school and C players are defined as: hockey enthusiasts. The first game is scheduled for November 5th @ 7:30pm.

We have anticipated that work, travel and family obligations will effect players' ability to consistently attend (hence the larger teams). Each team will have a captain that will be responsible for organizing teams weekly and ensuring that there are in fact A, B and C lines for the evening. Equality will be reviewed by our league commissioner. Goalies and Refs have already been secured, but if you are a goalie please let us know and we will prioritize your time. Cold beverages will be made available for post-game discussion and breaking down film.

Each team will be responsible for coming up with their own team name. The season will end in late February / early March with play-offs and a championship game.


Who:

All members and alumni are welcome. Alumni will also need to become vacation members for the season. Coaches are invited to play at no cost.

When / Where:

All games will be Wednesday and Sunday evenings at GSC.

Cost:

$350 plus tax


Registration is now open!

GSC FIGURE SKATING INSTRUCTION

 

 The Figure Skating Program at the Greenwich Skating Club offers a variety of programs for beginners to more advanced skaters of all ages.  The Greenwich Skating Club is a member of the United States Figure Skating (USFS) and utilizes the BASIC SKILLS PROGRAM as its primary teaching format.

 

Enrollment in a group class is a commitment, and attendance is taken at each class.  At the end of the season, badges will be awarded on the basis of skill testing.  Participants are deemed ready to test for badges based on the assessment of the professional instructor.  Tests are judged by either Club Professionals or accredited USFSA judges.

 

In addition to group classes, the Figure Skating program offers Freestyle practice sessions.  Private lessons may be booked by the individual skater during scheduled Pre-Paid Freestyle or General Skating sessions.  Only Club authorized professionals may teach private lessons.

 

Registration in classes is ongoing for the first two weeks of the season.  Classes will begin the first Saturday after the Club opens.  Cancelations of classes will be accepted during the first three weeks of class and your bill will be prorated.  After this, no refunds for canceled classes will be granted.  In addition to class fees, each program participant must be a member of the USFS.  All classes and other fees, including competition entries, will be charged through member accounts at GSC.


The following is a summary of all the skating classes offered for the 2014-2015 season at GSC.  They are broken down by ability level.  The schedule is subject to enrollment, and some classes may be limited in size.  All registrations will be confirmed before the start of classes.  Where a * is indicated, several classes will be scheduled within the time block.

MONDAY 12:30 - 1:30 P.M.*

Monday class times are split into 3 twenty minute classes. 

Designed for the younger skater (Pre-school and Kindergarten), the Learn to Skate program stresses preliminary coordination and strength to maneuver on skates.  The Monday time slots have traditionally been a time for the younger skater to practice with his/her peer group and develop confidence on the ice.  This class will include fun and games to encourage enjoyment of skating.

 

 

SKATING BADGE SKILLS CLASSES:  30 MINUTE CLASSES

 

SATURDAY 9:00 - 10:30 A.M.*
