In recent years, ice hockey has increased in popularity with children and parents alike. In addition to being a fun and inclusive team sport, hockey provides a constructive activity for kids to channel their energy as they get great exercise. Ice hockey drills, scrimmages and competition provide aerobic as well as anaerobic benefits. Playing ice hockey also helps build coordination in young kids and helps to tone and strengthens many muscle groups. As a sport, ice hockey is something children can carry into their adult lives.

Paramus Ice Hockey offers clinics that are designed as an introduction to the sport of ice hockey. These clinics focus on basic skating and ice hockey fundamentals. Clinic participants are put in groups based on ability level and work at their own speed. The clinics are open to kids of all ages and ability levels. Many clinics include children from grades K-8 who are 'on the ice' for the first time.

Clinics are held on Sunday afternoons at Fritz Dietl Ice Rink, 639 Broadway, Westwood, New Jersey. The clinics are a non-competitive environment where kids can learn the game of ice hockey without the pressure of league or team play. All clinics include a great instructor-to-skater ratio.

Along with basic Learn-to-Play clinics, Paramus Ice Hockey also offers a 10-week schedule of Power Skating and Total Skills clinics on Friday evenings beginning on April 3rd. These clinics are for players Mite - Bantam and focus on improving a player's skating, stick handling, puck control and shooting ability. Each session will be limited to 20 skaters to ensure a low skater-to-instructor ratio and all drills will be age and ability appropriate.

Paramus Ice Hockey also offers Spring Junior Ice Hockey Clinics for all ages (no experience necessary) on Sundays beginning on May 3rd.
