Lil' Knights Cross-Ice Program is a year round introductory hockey program for skaters (ages 5+) designed to teach the fundamentals of skating and puck control related to the exciting game of ice hockey.
Upon successful completion of all levels, skater will be prepared to participate in the youth “In-House” leagues at
Las Vegas Ice Center. Classes are 8 week sessions (except if specified). Each class will consist of 40-45 minutes of instruction followed by 5-10 minutes of scrimmage to practice skills learned during each class.
It is highly recommended that students continue practicing these skills during Public Skating & Stick and Puck sessions throughout the week in order to promote a quick progression through the program.
All Players will be evaluated at the end of each 8 week session in preparation for the next level.
Our goal is to provide excellent and enjoyable instruction in a safe environment.
This is a fun introduction to the great sport of ice hockey.

They will learn & master the hockey ready position, how to identify & use inside & outside edges, how to perform Right & Left C-Cuts, how to forward stride, and how to control stop. Skater must pass these categories in order to advance to Hockey 2.

These players will learn & master controlled single foot turns & two-feet heel to toe turns, forward R & L crossovers, backward skating (R & L C-Cuts), forward to backward transitioning, and puck control (keeping the puck in front of the body). Skater must pass four of these five categories in order to advance to Hockey 3.
- Lil Knights 3 is for players that have successfully passed Hockey 1 & Hockey 2. This semester will help the player further develop and prepare for game-like situations. They will learn & master how to pass and receive the puck (forehand & backhand), how to shoot the puck (forehand "wrist shot", & backhand), advanced puck control (move puck from one side of body to the other), and transition forward to backward with the puck.
