The Chicago Bulldogs Hockey programs are designed to compliment and work in conjunction with the Heartland Ice Arena's Learn to Play Hockey Programs. Designed around the guidelines of USA Hockey’s ADM model, which creates a fun, relaxed learning environment for participants to learn the fundamental skills of ice hockey. The non-competitive and positive atmosphere not only makes a child’s first experience with hockey positive, but also creates an environment in which they can excel and advance to higher levels of competition as desired.
Participants will not only learn to skate but the skills and game of ice hockey, but will also develop self-esteem and self-confidence. The program operates under the premise that if a player's introduction to the sport is positive, they will develop a lifetime love of the game.
