HOCKEY and RINGETTE Skating Skills

 

 
Power, speed, quickness, efficiency .... these are all the skills each hockey/ringette player requires to play the game they love.  In this class we will work on the fundamental skills and break them down.  Through proper technique, muscle memory and repetition, this program will help each player achieve their goals.  With confidence, they will skate and stride to success.
 
 
 
This program focuses on specific skating skills for hockey and ringette and is coached by professional Skate Canada Can-Power coaches. Lessons emphasize balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. The program will also help to increase the length of stride as well as the efficiency of forward and backward skating.
