The Robert Crown Center in Evanston (map) is now offering beginner hockey lessons for adults. According to the website:
This is an introduction class to skating & stick/puck handling. Participants should have some basic skating skills before start of class. A helmet/stick/elbow and knee pads are required. Equipment not provided.
The class is taught by Pete Morich, a USA Hockey Level 3 Certified coach. But Pete is "one of us"; he started learning the game of hockey in 2011 at the age of 45, and knows what it is like to be an adult beginner hockey player.
During the summer of 2017, the lessons are offered on the following nights and times:
Wednesday: 8:45 pm - 9:45 pm
Friday: 8:45 pm - 9:45 pm
Sunday: 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm
The 12-week session has already started, but you can "drop in" and pay per class. Contact James Faedtke, the Assistant Program Coordinator, for more information about that at 847-859-7824.
In September, the Robert Crown Center will continue offering adult hockey lessons on the following nights:
Monday: 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm, September 11 to November 13
Friday: 9:15 pm - 10:15 pm, September 15 to November 17
Sunday: 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm, September 17 to November 19
The cost is $130 (or $110 if you live in Evanston) for 10 lessons. That breaks down to $13 for an hour of hockey instruction. That's a good price, considering that the average cost of ice time for hockey is about $20 per hour.
