Minor Hawks Instructional Hockey Curriculum

The Winnetka Ice Arena Minor Hawks Instructional Hockey Class program is affiliated with the Chicago Blackhawks. Participants in all Mini Hawks, Little Hawks, and Junior Hawks classes will receive a free Minor Hawks jersey! Our classes are designed to teach the aspiring hockey player the skills needed to enjoy the great game of hockey. Whether your child’s objective is to improve their hockey skills or just learn skating on a recreational basis, we have something for them.

We have a limited number of free helmets available during class.
