City National Arena is where it all starts for your beginner player. Our Lil Knights Cross-Ice Program, presented by our partners at The D Las Vegas, is designed to form the skills foundation for players to move into our House League program. We have developed a model to ensure that all our players have FUN while we keep a consistent schedule of weekend skills sessions and games. Our coaching staff is prepared, extremely engaged and knowledgeable. As the face of our program, our coaches represent this program with class and professionalism.
Planned progression development is at the core of our Lil Knights offering at City National Arena. Each weekend session has our players learn and improve on the four basic skills of hockey: Skating, Puck-Handling, Passing and Shooting. Each player receives instruction on proper technique and opportunity to practice those skills in an organized and challenging setting. The program also includes game play. Our game format is 5v5 full ice games with goalies. This allows all players to “discover” the skills they practiced during our training sessions in a fun and unstructured environment.
We take great pride in hosting the Lil Knights program presented by The D Las Vegas and believe this weekend format is the best development model for our older players. Not only do our players and families enjoy the game day excitement and atmosphere, but the players also improve their skill set and compete level. We all want to play hockey -- not just train -- and this format enables our kids to experience that weekly game setting. These weekend sessions create a team environment for the players as well. This helps them prepare for that next step, as they move into league play.
