Sugar Land Ice & Sports Hockey Academy is designed to teach the fundamental hockey skills. Classes start by introducing skaters to the fundamentals of skating and build up to skills such as stick-handling, passing and shooting. Hockey 1 & 2 differ from Mighty Mites because they are less team and drill-oriented. Mighty Mites classes teach similar basics but also include team and game fundamentals.
For the adult Hockey Academy participants, Hockey Academy progresses to Novice League where the same game and team concepts are supplemented with drills.
