Ball Hockey Program

GOHL – Ball Hockey

Program Overview

Ball Hockey Skillz is designed to ignite a love for the game among diverse youth who have yet to experience the thrill of hockey. By using ball hockey as a foundational introduction, we create a non-intimidating environment, allowing newcomers to build skills and confidence before transitioning to traditional ice hockey.
