USA Hockey Presents Try Hockey For Free Across America

Join us for an exciting opportunity to watch your kids take their first steps all over again while we promote youth hockey programs!

Please register early, so we can have equipment ready and available.

Requirements on the ice include: a helmet (bike helmet is ok), gloves/mittens, and a great attitude!  Many families also like to dress their new players in snow pants.  

Please call the office with any questions you may have! 517-579-2152


Livingston Skate Club

We LOVE our skate club here at 140 Ice Den!  

Their Learn to Skate Program is a MUST for youth and adults a like!  Whether you are skating for fun, exercise, to be a figure skater, or a hockey player this is a great way to get started and move at your own pace!

Give them a call to see if there are still openings available for this next session.  248-807-0631 (Co-Director Kristen Paulson)

Learn To Play Hockey

Our Learn to Play Hockey program isn't quite like the "big box stores".  We have a small group and lots of 1 on 1 attention is given to our future Little Cougars!

This program requires players who have forward skating ability and have completed a minimum of one (preferably 3) Learn To Skate sessions.  

We do have equipment for your youngster to borrow while you navigate through all things hockey.   We are here to help you!!

Please call the office for further details. 517-579-2152
