Ice hockey is an exciting, fast paced and physical contact sport. As the home of the oldest and most successful ice hockey team in the country, the GMB Nottingham Panthers, there’s no better place to immerse yourself in the fastest team game in the world!
PLEASE NOTE: We have recently changed the structure of our learn to play ice hockey courses, including EIHA junior and Squirts hockey. New course details including FAQs and a new progression chart can be found below.
Skate Hockey is a six-week ice hockey course for ages 4 to 16 years. Starting from beginner grade 1 going up to grade 6, the course is delivered without the use of a puck to ensure players can skate to a standard that will enable them to move onto the Play Hockey course – the next level of their hockey development. Skate Hockey teaches participants how to skate the hockey way from scratch.
Are you currently on the EIHA course? If you’re an existing customer, booking onto the new Skate Hockey programme can only be made over the phone (by calling 0843 373 3000) or in person at our box office. After your first course you will be able to book via our online booking system. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
Play Hockey grades 1-3 are only available for grass roots beginners. NIHC registered club players are not eligible to access this session. Play Hockey is when the puck is introduced as part of the player’s development. The stronger the player can skate the better they will be. Play Hockey uses a similar format to that of the Skate Hockey programme but with the addition of learning puck handling at the same time as skating.
