The STHA is pleased to announce the details of our Winter Learn to Skate Program! Please see the details below, and note the sessions are moving from Sunday mornings to Friday evenings.
LEARN TO SKATE PROGRAM
The Learn to Skate program is an introductory program designed to give children the skills necessary to move forward through the STHA, eventually transitioning from LTS to the 8U Red/White/Blue Program and ultimately to our House and/or Travel Divisions.
Learn to Skate Winter Session will begin in January and is for boys and girls who would like to learn the fundamental skills of ice skating. The LTS program will be designed to develop strong basic skating skills (balance, stride, edges and stopping) as an introductory program for children interested in hockey. No previous skating experience is necessary. The goal of each participant in the program should be to learn, to have fun, and to increase their confidence each time they step on the ice.
Children will be divided each session according to ability. During the sessions the groups will be working on developing various skills as they work their way through the curriculum.
Ages: We recommend a minimum age of 4. Skaters younger than 4 may register at their parent's discretion.
Times/Location(s): The program will run for 8 weeks, on Friday evenings from 6:15-7:15pm, beginning Friday, January 12, 2018 at the Ice House Sports Complex, 614 River Road, Binghamton, 13901. The last scheduled session will be Friday , March 9, 2018. Some dates/times may change depending on the NA3HL Jr. Senators game schedule.
- Current HECC-Certified Hockey Helmet, with full cage or shield (no bicycle or scooter helmets)
- Hockey Gloves
- Shin Pads
- Elbow Pads
Registration: Participants will need to register for the program with USA Hockey and bring the following to the first session:
A printed copy of their USA Hockey registration
A completed STHA Learn to Skate Registration Form
A copy of your player’s birth certificate (if not previously provided)
Payment for the full 8 week session ($80) is due at the first session. Checks can be made out to the STHA.
You can go here to register with USA Hockey: https://www.usahockeyregistration.com/
Please email ADM Cordinator Joe Roberto (firstname.lastname@example.org) once you have registered with USA Hockey with your child's name, birth date, and USA Hockey Confirmation number.
The January Regular Meeting of the STHA Board of Directors will be held on Monday, January 22nd, at 7:00pm at The Relief Pitcher in Binghamton.
Please attend and help support youth hockey in the Southern Tier.

Games will be played 4-on-4 with no goalies, although goalies are welcome to dress in normal player gear and skate out as a regular player on the team.
ALL games, regardless of age level, will be played non-check.
Each game consists of two 20 minute halves.
Each team will play 3 games.
There will also be various other winter family activities available including Animal Adventure, live music, and more.
This weekend event is a USA Hockey sanctioned event (NYT1718182A), and that means all players must be registered with USA Hockey, although they are NOT required to play on their regular season team.
Teams may consist of between 6 and 16 players, but no more than 12 players per team is recommended so that all players get sufficient ice time.
There are multiple youth divisions: an 8U division , a 10U + 12U combo division, and a 14U + 16U combo division. The overlap in age for divisions is meant so friends or relatives that do not normally have the opportunity to play together may do so in this event.
The cost of entry is $400 per team.
The Binghamton Pond Festival is happy to share that United Health Services has graciously offered to sponsor the Southern Tier Hockey Association's House players.
Teams that are comprised of players registered in the STHA's 2017-2018 House program will be eligible for a $200 discount off of their team entry fee. Additionally, these discount teams will be permitted to have up to two travel players on them if they chose to so that friends may play together even if they are normally on different teams.
Any and all other teams are welcome to partake, but will not be eligible for the UHS sponsorship.
For more information, questions, or to register a team, please refer to the Binghamton Pond Festival's website or contact Tytus Haller:
