Power Skating Program Focus Areas:

1. Acceleration and Explosiveness: the first 3 steps are what give skilled skaters the edge in hockey.

2. Power and Stride Development: maximize stride potential with fluid and efficient motion.

3. Agility and Quickness: refinement of body positioning and on-ice angles in small areas.

 

Age Groups:
Do not be concerned about Age groups, the players will be focused on their own stride and advancement this should not be a concern. Last summer we had Midget aged players on the ice at the same time, as they focus on their stride efficiency, and not worried who is on the ice! Please call if there are any concerns

Advanced Power Skating Program Information:
Mission: This program is designed for the players who are dedicated to take their game to the next level. In addition to the focus on power skating principles, players will understand the mechanics of using the entire body in unison, and also the dynamics of the equipment in power skating. Every racecar driver needs to understand how the engine works!

The emphasis of the Advanced Power Skating Program includes:
1. Acceleration and Explosiveness: the first 3 steps are what give skilled skaters the edge in hockey.
2. Power and Stride Development:maximize stride potential for individual players.
3. Agility and Quickness:refinement of body positioning and on-ice angles in small areas.

Format: The program will make full use of the ice time and ice surface available. This is not a conditioning skate. Our emphasis is on teaching players to teach their bodies and minds the proper techniques for Speed Development and Acceleration. Skaters will be allowed proper recovery time between intervals in order to participate at 100% effort capacity, both physically and mentally.

Ice Time: 5 Minute Warm-up and Cool Down, and 15 minutes for each section outlined above.
Individual Training: players will be encouraged to support one another, however the challenge is strictly on an individual basis. We are not competing against one another.
