General Information

Space Coast Iceplex’s goal is to eventually get every kid that starts in our Hockey Academy on to a team. With our new reward sticker program, parents can monitor the progress of their kids as they move through the Hockey Academy levels. It will let everyone know when your child is ready for the next step, their own team!

Hockey Academy will now be held down at the far end of the rink separated from the other classes by the black foam boarder patrol. We are separating Skating from Hockey so we can now introduce pucks!!! Hockey Academy is broken down into Hockey 1, Hockey 2 and Hockey 3. In each level there are five skills players must become good at to move up. When a player is good at a skill they will receive a colored sticker on the back of their helmet like College football players get. The amount of stickers and the color coincides with the poster below. The poster you see below will be hung on the wall by locker room 4. Parents can now see where there child is at according to how many stickers they have. Once a player has achieved all the levels they will be asked to join one of our in-house teams!

We feel the kids who take classes have limited time to practice their skills at SC Iceplex so we are happy to announce public session times will be extended on class days. Not only that, rental skates and public sessions will be included on the day of your class with your paid membership and dues!  Saturday Hockey Academy classes will start at 10:45 am and go until 11:45 am. Public session will start at 12:45 pm and run until 3:00 pm. It is a great opportunity to practice your skills right after your class on Saturday. Speak Pat Cox our Hockey Academy and In House Hockey Director or any one of our professional coaching staff to set up a private lesson on the new extended publics. Nothing beats one on one attention to grasp and perfect a skill!


Classes will now be an hour in length instead of ½ hour. The reason for extending the time is the amount of time and effort it takes to gear up your kid. Additionally much more can be learned in an hour practice vs a ½ hour. Hockey Academy classes will be held at the far end of the rink near the Zamboni door. Pucks will be introduced and therefore the classes will be divided from Skating Academy by the black foam border patrol.

  • First 5 minutes will be skating warm up
  • 3 minute stretch in a circle
  • Players move to the location of their level
  • 15 minutes skating skills and drills
  • 15 minutes puck skills – passing, shooting, stick handling
  • 5 minutes moving puck drills
  • 15 minute scrimmage divided by level

Membership Program
One of the biggest changes with the new system is the “ongoing class” structure and verses the “8 week semester” system. Semesters carry with them an inherent disadvantage compared to ongoing classes. Here is a list of the benefits with our membership and monthly dues program.

  • One time registration
  • Automatically billed monthly
  • Client Scan Card
  • No more deadlines to sign up
  • Add or remove a Hockey Academy class or add a Skating Academy class with ease
  • Suspend or cancel a membership with ease
  • Easy to do make-ups
  • Online account management from home

Adding or Taking Away Classes

Adding or taking away a classes is done with ease. Come into the rink and fill out a simple form and your request will go into effect the following week.

Membership Suspension or Cancelation
When you are a member in good standing, once a year for $15 you may hold/suspend you membership for up to 3 months. This holding of your membership allows you to return to our Hockey Academy without having to renew a membership. Remember you can only take advantage of make-up classes and public session privileges when you are paying monthly dues. While a membership is suspended it also suspends the make-up classes and public sessions.Cancelling is easy too. In person, at the rink, fill out a cancellation form 10 days before the auto billing date and your membership will be cancelled. Credit Cards are billed the 7th of the month.
