Our mission in all programs at the Suburban Ice - Rochester is to ensure that every player is playing at the proper competitive level so that he/she can truly enjoy playing the game, while developing age-appropriate skills and knowledge of the sport. With this in mind we have designed an 8 and under program that incorporates age and skill progression in a competitive and challenging environment under the direction of trained professional Suburban Staff.
