This video demonstrates Minor (Level 1/2) and Major (Level 3/4)  

 

 

Level 1
Players have a hard time with skating both forward and backward. They’ve acquired some basic skills in getting up and down the ice but still struggle with carrying the puck, making passes, and taking shots. 
 
Level 2
Players are more comfortable on their skates, but still struggle with going backward. They are probably just getting comfortable with positional play, learning to skate with their head up, grasping the rules and team concepts, and understanding offensive and defensive zones. 
 
Level 3
Players are comfortable skating forward and can now skate backward competently. Players at level 3 can likely do front crossovers and turn with the puck efficiently. 
 
Level 4
Players at this level are comfortable in a faster-paced game, are able to keep up with the play and contribute to the team. 
 
Level 5
Players are comfortable at a high level in all areas of the game. They are generally among the best players on the ice and can do backwards crossovers.

Level 6
Players believe they will be drafted to the NHL any day now.
