If your child enjoys our session of Learn to Skate and would like to continue learning how to skate or would like to join the West Salem Hockey Association Transition Program we will direct you further at that time. 

All first year skaters with the West Salem Hockey Association skate for FREE!


The Learn to Skate program is made possible by generous donations from our local community sponsors.
100% of expenses are covered through the fundraising efforts of the West Salem Hockey Association.
