Lil Knights Program 

Lil' Knights Cross-Ice program is a year round introductory hockey program for skaters (ages 5+)
who  have passed "Advanced Beginner" or "Pre-Alpha" levels of our "Learn to Skate" program.


 Lil' Knights program is designed to teach the fundamentals of skating and puck control related to the exciting game of ice hockey. Upon successful completion of all levels, skaters will be prepared to participate in the youth “In-House” leagues at Las Vegas Ice Center.  FULL HOCKEY GEAR IS REQUIRED. The Las Vegas Ice Center Proshop can fit your child with a full set of hockey gear. We carry Bauer and True hockey gear starter kits as well many other options.

Lil Knights Schedule

  Monday and Friday are skills practice days and will include a full 60 minutes of skills instruction. Saturdays will be mandatory for all participants and will consist of a controlled cross-ice scrimmage for the full 60 minute session. This will give your skaters a better understanding of game situations and allow a smoother transition into playing on a team in House League. It is highly recommended that students continue practicing their 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 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.

Each Lil Knights Session is 8 weeks. Lil Knights is broken down into three levels. Skaters must demonstrate the skills necessary to move to the next level.  Skaters generally take 3-4 sessions to master all the skills required to graduate from the program. Players may choose between a two-day per week plan or a three-day per week plan.
