Why Power Skating?

Power skating is a program that is designed to improve and master skating techniques for both hockey and ringette players. Power Skating provides skaters with a session to focus on their skating abilities, which can then be transferred to hockey practices and games. It takes time, practise and dedication to become an excellent skater. Power skating is not only for straight line acceleration but for all skating skill areas, backward skating, tight glide turns, forward/backward crossovers, etc. Skating is the most fundamental skill required to play hockey or ringette. Many times skating is the skill that is practiced the least amongst young athletes. Stick handling, shooting, checking and even goaltending, while all difficult skills have one thing in common – SKATING!

Being able to skate with proper technique, balance and agility will increase the athlete’s confidence! ISPSS is conducted throughout the player’s season so they can make full use of the skills they are taught.
