Our Goal

To develop basic ball hockey skills while at the same time teaching listening, following instructions, attention, focus and various motor skills.

The class uses a variety of fun games with lots of physical activity with each session ending with a hockey theme book being read.

Our Coaches

Believe that every child deserves to play, have fun and develop a life-long love of movement and sport. 

Hockey Buds sessions are led by lead instructors alongside a team of assistants to ensure every participant receives plenty of attention and learning.

Parent volunteers are also welcome to join in the action and assist if they prefer. 

Proud Members

We are proud registered members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Ball Hockey Association and Canadian Ball Hockey Association. Your child will also become a registered member of the Provincial and National bodies.
