Learn to play ice hockey – get Sportivated!

If you’ve watched the Lightning this season and been inspired to want to learn to play, now’s your chance!

Once again with the help of our friends at Sport England, we are able to offer our FREE Learn To Play sessions at the MK Arena.

The sessions start next week and will run every Monday evening for six weeks starting on 18 April, there’s no charge for players in the appropriate age group (see below) and all equipment is provided.

If you are outside the age groups shown you can still take part but there is a charge of £6 per session.

There will be two sessions each week:

From 8-9pm – girls and ladies

  • No charge for 16-25 year olds or just £6 per session for anyone outside those ages

From 9-10pm – mixed gender

  • No charge for 16-25 year olds or just £6 per session for anyone outside those ages

The sessions are aimed at beginners and we hope to introduce people to playing the sport with a view to promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. Funding is courtesy of Sport England’s “Sportivate” programme. The only requirement is that you should be able to move unaided on the ice.

To take part simply turn up at the Arena a few minutes before your chosen session gets underway!
