Fall Power Plus Skating

Power Plus Skating is a correction based, faced paced fundamentals program, teaching skills such as proper stride, crossovers, transitions, balance, and backward skating, as well as many other hockey/ringette related movements and skating skills. Our tremendous success since 1963 is due to our philosophy; corrected repetition is key! Learn the fundamentals properly first then build on those skills to improve speed and agility. We teach individuals to skate at almost any age for recreation, or to compete at the highest levels of ringette, hockey and speed skating.

Program Requirements:

To enter our program the participant must be striding on their own without use of the boards or any on ice equipment, usually about the age of 6 for most children. To put a participant into any high intensity teaching program prior to this stage of development COULD be detrimental to a skater’s mental and physical well being.
