Registration is now open for the 2021-2022 sessions of the Swords Learn to Play Hockey.  Swords Learn to Play Hockey is a combination of hockey skills and scrimmage situations taught by a professional and friendly staff. 
The class is open to boys and girls ages 4-16.

Learn to Play vs Learn to Skate -- If your child is just starting on skates we recommend that they attend the Learn to Skate program first.  Before moving to LTPH, we would like all players to be able to move forward on their own and be able to stop.

Skaters will be divided into small groups based on a combination of skills and age.  The goal will be to teach your skater the skills necessary to participate on a hockey team within 2-4 sessions.  


Each Program offers:

  • 10 week session
  • Sunday afternoons
  • 1 1/4 hours on ice
  • Jersey (given after first evaluation)
  • $175 if registered in advance of 1st class, the fee will increase by $50 if registered less than 72 hours prior to the 1st class
Skating skills taught will include forward and backward crossovers, pivot turns, hockey stops, and other skills relating to balance, quickness and power. Basic stick handling, passing and shooting are covered as well. Full equipment is required.  Have your child try the equipment on before their first lesson.  Have them wear it around the house to get used to the feeling before they enter the ice surface.

Equipment Rental Program

The Cincinnati Swords Hockey and Skating Academy is pleased to announce the addition of a hockey equipment rental program for the Learn to Play Hockey Program.  The rental program will allow our young skaters ages 10 and younger, a chance to start learning our game without the expense of having to purchase full gear.

Included in the rental is a bag, helmet, shin guards, elbow pads, chest protector and pants.  Families will be required to purchase skates and a stick for their player on their own.

The rental fee of just $25 per session will be handled as part of the registration process for the Learn to Play Hockey Program.

Limited quantities and sizes available.  

Due to COVID-19, please note that you are responsible for washing the gear when you receive it and before you return it.
