ADULT HOCKEY LESSONS:
Sharks Ice San Jose has programs for adult hockey players of all levels. Adult Beginner Hockey (for true beginners) and Adult Intermediate (for those with more experience) plus Adult Learn to Skate are offered to players looking to improve their basic skills. These 1-hour sessions are offered in 6-week blocks. New classes are on an ongoing basis.
For many, our Adult Hockey Classes are taken in preparation for play in our Sharks Ice Adult Hockey League (SIAHL). Though it is not mandatory for new players to follow the entire class progression listed below, we do recommend taking all of the classes in order for the player to maximize their enjoyment in the sport.
Adult Learn to Skate

This is an eight week series where, at the conclusion of the class, players will receive a jersey and will then be considered a team that will enter Division 9 of the next season of the SIAHL.
