While you wait, we highly recommend signing up for our Learn to Hockey Skate Class through our Skating Academy.

Learn to Hockey Skate

Intro to Hockey

Skating is the most basic and fundamental skill required to play the game of hockey. In Intro to Hockey class, we focus on the absolute basics of skating; how to fall and get up, how to stroke and stop, and additional basic maneuvers. No stick or pucks and full hockey gear is NOT required.

Hockey 101

After successfully completing our Intro to Hockey skating class programs skaters can join our Hockey 101 class. In this class players will begin working on stick and puck handling, while expanding on the fundamentals they learned in the Intro class. Full gear is REQUIRED.

In-House Hockey

Join the fast, non-stop action in our Vacaville Jets In-House Hockey League! Our In-House League is for boys and girls ages 5 and up to learn and play hockey in a fun, non-pressured environment. After successfully completing the Intro to Hockey skating class and our Beginning Hockey classes (Hockey 1), your player will be ready to compete in the Jets in-house program. We maintain a structured, competitive, and exciting environment for players of all ages and abilities!

20 week season with 1 practice and 1 game each week!

9 & Under

Monday evenings & Saturday mornings

Practices are Mondays at 5:15pm - 6:15pm. We split the group into 5-6 smaller groups, and they rotate through different stations with different drills and objectives. This maximizes ice usage and helps keep them focused.

Games are Saturdays at 8:45-9:45am. We split the ice into 3 separate games played simultaneously cross-ice for proper development. Smaller areas for games at this age promote competitiveness, more stops-and-starts, more quickness, and allows for more puck-touches. Games are played 3-on-3, and coaches will help them correct mistakes and learn to compete hard.

10 & Up

Monday evenings & Saturday mornings

Practices are Mondays at 6:30pm - 7:30pm. These practices focus on skill development as well as teamwork and positioning. These practices will push them to be their best, work hard, and have fun while learning to compete hard.

Games are Saturdays at 10:00-11:00am. Games are played full ice 5-on-5 plus a goalie on each side. We will have a referee for each game calling penalties, offsides, and goals. Players will learn how to follow all of these guidelines properly in a non-pressured environment.
