About Edge

At Edge Power Skating, we know the foundation for great hockey is great skating. But the fact is, most hockey programs are more about the puck than edges and speed. That’s where we come in. Our instructors, combining the best of figure skating and hockey, are experts at teaching the proper power skating technique. Using a competent, compassionate coaching method, we build on individual strengths and correct areas of weakness, step-by-step. That’s how we help your child build confidence on the ice and develop the powerful edges

Our philosophy

We are player-focused. That means we get to know our players and track their progress, at every session. 

Each player’s learning style can be different. We are able to modify our coaching style for those that learn best visually, orally, auditory and/or hands–on. We know that with positive encouragement, players work hard, learn fast and achieve results

Our Approach

We teach proper power skating technique step-by-step:
  • Each element is explained from head to skate
  • Each element is demonstrated
  • Drills are repeated several times
  • Our lesson plans our carefully thought out to deliver results at the end of our sessions.
Repetition has been proven to build muscle memory and therefore measured improvements in our players.  Consistently over 93% of our players enrolled in PS 101 increase their speed by the end of the session.

Meet Tracey Dorr

As a competitive figure skater who has passed over 60 figure skating tests, achieved Gold level status, competed in synchronized skating and won two Canadian National Championships, Tracey knows what it takes to train and work hard to pursue goals, get results and succeed.  She continued her passion for skating as a Professional Figure Skater with Disney on Ice and as a coach for the University of Guelph Figure Skating Team.  Tracey received coaching certification, including Power Skating through Skate Canada and the NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program). 

Where Edge Power Skating began and where we continue to go ...

Tracey’s oldest son began playing select hockey in his Novice year … late to start in the competitive world of hockey. His coach told him that he needed to improve his skating. For 6 months, Tracey and her son took to the ice at 6am(!!) once a week at Forest Hill arena. She soon realized that her son was a “gamer”. All he wanted to do was play with the puck, so she integrated the stick and puck into the lessons. Why not use them …. he was going to be skating with them during a game. Tracey broke down the skating, worked on the details, built muscle memory and the results became noticeable. By the end of the season, her son became one of the best skaters on his team AND he was selected for a AAA team the following year. The AAA team hired Tracey to coach power skating that year.

It didn’t take long for Tracey to realize that she loved working with the kids, enjoyed taking her passion for skating and impressing it on the players and most of all she was so thrilled to see that her program was producing results. Not only could she see the results, but the players, parents and coaches could too. From there Edge Power Skating was born. Having 20 years of sales and marketing experience also helped create a solid business plan and strategy.

Edge Power Skating has grown to include a team of experienced and trained coaches, detailed lesson plans thought through to the smallest detail and tested to ensure results. We now operate out of multiple rinks in the Toronto, Ontario area, have multiple seasonal sessions, day camps and over 16 programs. Edge Power Skating works with multiple teams a year at all ages and levels. We have coached OHL draft picks and seen our players succeed in their game and most importantly in their confidence.

Tracey’s passion is being on the ice coaching. Her joy continues to come from watching players develop their skating skills and having players grow by challenging themselves. Pride also comes from seeing our players build their confidence, becoming great hockey players’ and also respected young men and women. We know that sport is an analogy for life.
