New to the sport? Here's our Hockey Equipment Checklist!

WELCOME TO THE ROYAL OAK HOCKEY CLUB!

Our mission in all programs at John Lindell-Royal Oak Ice Arena is to ensure that every player is playing at the proper competitive level so that he/she can truly enjoy playing the game, while developing age-appropriate skills and knowledge of the sport.  With this in mind we have designed an 8 and Under program that incorporates age and skill progression in a competitive and challenging environment under the direction of trained professional John Lindell-Royal Oak Staff.  Please review the different levels below and feel free to contact us with questions.

LEVEL 1 - LIL' EAGLES:
(Ages 4 - 6)

  • Recommended as a first step for beginning hockey players who completed a Learn to Skate class and have a solid base of fundamental skating skills.
  • One 1-hour skate each week.  

LEVEL 2 - MINI MITES:
(Ages 5 - 8)

  • Program serves as an introduction to "team" play with practice sessions and small-ice games. 
  • We strongly believe that keeping the players active and moving on the ice, having fun, and building confidence is essential.  
  • Games will be cross-ice which is played width-wise in the end zones of the rink.  
  • Two 1-hour skates each week. Enhances the fundamental skill development of each player.

LEVEL 3 - MITE LEAGUE:
(Ages 7 - 8)

  • Teams will be selected by Royal Oak Staff with the assistance of volunteer coaches
  • Advanced players will play against other Advanced players and same for Intermediate players  
  • Game Day Format: half-ice (red line to goal line) using the board dividers, 4 v 4 using two - 22 minute periods, small nets and goaltenders, referees and scorekeepers
  • Two 1-hour skates each week.
