We love hockey!

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. 



We love your aspiring hockey player!

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

Details matter

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.
