Norwood Youth Hockey's Learn to Skate program is the first step for aspiring hockey players, or those that simply want to learn how to skate. The program is designed for first time skaters, as well as those with some skating skills, for ages 4 and up. While it is a large group setting, players are divided into smaller groups by ability, where coaches cater the program to the skill level of the group. This program uses fun interactive traditional playground games to teach balance, weight shift, and hand eye coordination while building basic skating skills.
For the 2014-2015 Season we will be offering 3 sessions of LTS:
Session 1 will be a 6 week program starting on Saturday September 20, 2014. LTS 1 will meet each Saturday from 3:30 – 4:20 PM. The tuition for LTS 1 is $55.00.
Session 2 will be a 10 week program starting on Saturday November 1, 2014. LTS 2 will meet each Saturday from 1:00 – 1:50 PM. The tuition for LTS 2 is $95.00.
Session 3 will be a 10 week program starting on Saturday January 10, 2015. LTS 3 will meet each Saturday from 1:00 – 1:50 PM. The tuition for LTS 3 is $95.00.

Norwood Nuggets Seeking Sponsors For Upcoming Season
Dear Nuggets Family and Friends:
The Norwood Nuggets Youth Hockey Program is currently seeking team sponsors for the 2014-2015 season.
The continued generosity of our team sponsors has been instrumental in keeping the children of our community and those of our surrounding towns on the ice, skating and playing the most exciting game around.
Team sponsors enable the Norwood Nuggets to keep the increasing cost of this great sport manageable for those many families who wish to participate. Thanks to our sponsors, our organization has kept the tuition fees steady for the past four years, even though costs are rising. We want to continue to keep hockey a game that every child can play, and so all of our team sponsors are critical to this effort.
Sponsorships are available at various levels and options include sponsors name on team shirts, a link to the Norwood Nuggets website, promotional opportunities with families and friends of our program and special recognition during our annual fundraising activities.
If you know of a local business or organization that would be interested in sponsoring, please contact Steve Marchant at 617.784.7709 or
With the holiday shopping season underway, we are happy to introduce the official Norwood Nuggets Youth Hockey online store!
Now you can order your favorite Norwood Nuggets sweatshirts, hats, t-shirts and gear online from the convenience of home. Products will be shipped directly to you and some of the proceeds go to benefit our program.
