100% of your player’s time in a game is spent skating. During every shift he/she will be accelerating to the puck, accelerating in order to receive a pass or pivoting to change directions. If your team is a strong and fast skating team, they will be able to move the puck better and create more time and space. Give them ‘The Edge’ when it comes to their skating!
We specialize in team skating instruction and have been coaching teams for over 10 years.
Our Team Instruction includes:
- 75% Power Skating; 25% Power Skating with pucks
- Goal-setting with coach
- Skill-building Lesson Plans
- Technical breakdown of each skill
- Power skating drills – from Basic to Advanced
- Post-session Debrief
It is highly recommended you budget and organize your Power Skating coaching needs at tryout time (April).
It is optimal to start your season with Power Skating either in your team training
camps in August and/or once a week in September-October-November. We have experienced best results with consecutive practices (ie once a week), however we will endeavor to accommodate your teams schedule/request.
An option to consider is that after a baseline of proper skating technique is established with the team, we can divide the team in half so that smaller group instruction is created for power skating and your coaching staff executes hockey skills on the ice at the same time. A rotation system for the players is an effective one.
We encourage you to also consider that if your team/players have a specific skill request, for example Defense, Fast Feet or Agility please have these players register for these Edge Power Skating courses as part of their training.
Our availability is limited and we book up fast. We recommend booking us in April-May for your upcoming season. We are aware your ice is not allocated yet but you can be put on our list of team requests. When your practice times become available in July/August/September, we will prioritize teams based on when services were requested.
