As we have many foreign speaking kids, players and parents, here is a short information summary about the club and how to get started with ice hockey at IK Aarhus.
Who is IK Aarhus?
Ice Hockey Club Aarhus was founded in 2008, and we have more than 220 happy members of all age groups. The club is located at Aarhus Skøjtehal, Gøteborg Allé 9, 8200 Aarhus N.
How to start playing
Age group 3-6
Our Hockey School starts every Saturday morning at 9:30. At hockey school we start practicing basic skating skills. We work with skating posture, balance and simple exercises. Once your child has shown enough progression, he/she will join our U7 team, which is on the ice at the same time.
Age group 7-11
Our Hockey School continues at 10:45 Saturday with the older kids. It is basically the same training, but usually we see faster progression with the older kids. When your child has shown adequate progression, and depending on age and ability, they will join our U7 or U9 team, which trains several times a week.
We have equipment and skates you can borrow for free, so you only need to bring long underwear or similar and a bottle of water. Don't dress them too warmly, as they usually won't freeze when skating.
Age group 11-17
Here you will join one of our youth teams, depending on age and ability. To be able to join the youth teams, previous hockey experience from another club or similar is recommended. But if you are willing to put in a lot of effort to catch up, come and talk to one of our trainers about how you can get started.
