SBIHC's Hockey School program is designed for those those learning the basics as well as newbies and established players that want to grow their game.



Our aim is to provide a high quality program that focuses on core skills, innovative drills and stimulates creative thinking to produce the best hockey players possible.

Most of all, Hockey School is about meeting new players, learning new skills and having fun!

Hockey School is designed for Ages 12 and above, and runs from February to December on Sunday mornings from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM, broken into four 11x week terms.

11 & Under:

For children 11 years old and below - we have our Junior Development Program.

The Junior Development Program has the same coaching and training aspects of Hockey School, but is designed for kids 11 years and under.

Kids in this age range fall into one of three age groups depending on their age:

Ages 7 & Under - Mites

Ages 8-9 - Atoms

Ages 10-11 - Squirts

All participants thinking of joining Hockey School should have basic to intermediate skating skills already.


If your child does cannot skate or is comfortable on the ice, we recommend enrolling he/she in Macquarie Ice Rink's Learn to Skate program, you can find out more information on their website - click here.


The Hockey School curriculum will be published soon.
