Essex Youth Hockey offers options for children that are new to the game of hockey, as well as those that are more experienced and seeking an instructional and recreational hockey program. Programs are located at the Essex Skating Facility.

    "My 11 year old daughter just finished the House program as a Peewee and it was a great experience. The coaches while all volunteer are wonderful, helpful and caring. This is a lot of hockey both weekend mornings for 4 months but being a house program, it wasn't a problem missing a fair amount. You attend when you can. It's not a team, rather an instructional environment. There were quite a few kids that had never played before. The only hard part is that the starting time for practices vary from 630am to 8am. My daughter had a hard time getting up! The nice thing is that you have your whole day ahead of you. In a nutshell, it's a lot of great hockey instruction, helping you to improve quickly."
