Learn To Play

New Model to Start from September 2019

  • When & Where – This session will run on a Saturday morning 10:00-11:00 on Pad 2 at the Viola Arena, Cardiff. 
  • Cost – There will be no registration fee whilst under Xtreme Edges. The monthly fee for the Learn to Play Academy will be £45 per skater. From September, we will be able to offer the 10% discount to any skaters who wish to join the Xtreme Edges session on a Sunday in addition to being in the Learn to Play Academy. Fees will be due on the first Saturday of each month and can be accepted by cash or card.

  • How it will work – Xtreme Academy will develop each child through the programme by progressing them through specially designed levels in order for them to develop at a steady pace and be ready to join their age group within the club at the right time. Xtreme Academy only uses highly skilled coaches and demonstrators working to provide the children with the highest standard of coaching. Along with the skills to skate and play ice hockey, Xtreme Academy will also be teaching them discipline, being able to follow simple instructions, understanding whistle commands and holding the stick properly. The ultimate aim will be to progress into Cardiff Junior Devils Ice Hockey Club at a confident and competent ability to play and fall in love with the sport.

  • Kit – Equipment needed will be the basic starter kit, skates, stick, helmet and neck guard. If you require to purchase any of these items, we recommend using the shop in the Arena where the guys will help you get exactly what is needed and Xtreme skaters can get 10% discount in the shop also.

  • Progression – Xtreme Academy coaches will carry out an assessment each month to see what level the child has passed with the potential of moving up groups. Once a child is at the required level, we liase with Cardiff Junior Devils to arrange a trial for the relevant age group, with the idea of them moving into the club. We will then liase with the club and make a smooth transfer process for all parties.

Once you graduate from Xtreme Academy to the Junior Devils you will then be required to enrol your child as a club player which will be at a cost of £660 per year, split into manageable monthly payments of £55 per month.

This monthly payment will entitle your child to at least 2 hours of dedicated Ice time per week. You will need to:

  • Complete EIHA registration Cost dependent on Age and training potential.
  • Sign up to £55 per month payments
