  • One Goal: Learn to Skate Program

    Delano Area Youth Hockey Association (DAYHA) is again offering our OneGoal, Learn to Skate Program. The OneGoal program is designed specifically for kids ages 4-8 looking for a basic introduction to hockey. The on-ice sessions are designed to teach newcomers some game basics in a fun and safe environment. DAYHA coaches and student-athletes run all on-ice sessions. On-ice and off-ice support is offered to teach kids how to get their equipment on, hold a stick and, most importantly, skate. The program will provide a Q&A session designed to help parents and players understand the equipment, expectations of the program, and additional opportunities to skate for the 2022-2023 season. DAYHA will provide equipment (excluding skates, stick, support, and mouthguard) for families new to hockey and do not have their own equipment (a $150.00 security deposit is required). All interested OneGoal, Learn to Skate participants can also be enrolled in DAYHA’s Intro to Hockey program. Intro to Hockey will provide the participants with an additional ten on-ice sessions. The intro program runs once per week on Saturday. If you choose to sign your child up for the 2022-2023 DAYHA hockey season, you will be able to use the OneGoal equipment for the entire season. More detailed information will be provided at the parent meeting.
