Power Skating Camp

Why Have a Power Skating Camp?

The game of hockey is getting faster & skating is the most important skill for players to learn. Skating is the foundation for being able to pass, shoot, stickhandle, hit, and play the game. This is why we focus exclusively on skating each Monday night throughout the offseason. 

Development Plan for Power Skating

This camp will focus on breaking down the skating stride(s) to their most basic points, and then slowly building the mechanics of the skating stride together. When you build a skating stride step by step with a lot of practice reps, you create the good habits that result in a great skater with powerful strides.
