Power Class

Power class is back and is open to skaters of all ages and abilities.

Tuesdays 5:30pm – 6:15pm

The aim of the class is to help skaters develop a stronger foundation and expand their skill set. During hockey practice there is so much to learn with regard to passing, shooting, positioning, checking, special teams, and everything else, that it becomes difficult for coaches to put a lot of focus on skating skills. No matter how good of a skater a person might be there is always a lot more to learn. This class will teach skaters to use their edges in a wide variety of ways, giving them the tools needed to create explosive power without burning extra energy.

Full equipment is recommended, skaters will be encouraged to get out of their comfort zone. No Sticks!!! Water bottles would be a good idea too. No need to sign up…just drop in. Only $10 per class.

Some of the things covered will include:

  • High quality basic skating.
  • Stopping (on both feet) in a variety of different ways.
  • Backwards skating, with acceleration.
  • Forward to backward transitions without loss of speed.
  • Accelerating through turns.
  • Stopping and starting.
  • Energy conservation.
  • Explosive Starts.
  • Tight turns with speed and acceleration.
  • Sudden direction change.
  • Slipping Checks.
  • High Speed Wrap-arounds.
  • and much, much more…

See you Tuesday!
