Winter Power Plus Skating

UPDATE March 2020: There are no rink closures this weekend due to COVID-19. We are on for Evaluations. If you feel a bit sick please stay home! We will do your evaluation at the start of the next session! Please be safe out there and just like any cold/flu wash your hands before putting them near your face or food and cough in your arm. Stay healthy!

Power Plus Skating is a correction based, faced paced fundamentals program, teaching skills such as power 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; a child must crawl before he or she walks, and must walk before he or she runs! We teach individuals to skate at almost any age for fun, ringette, hockey and speed skating.


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 demanding teaching program prior to this stage of development COULD be detrimental to a participant’s mental and physical well being.
Any new students to our program registering for level 2 or higher MUST contact us for an assessment to be placed in the appropriate skill level.

PLEASE NOTE: Gazdig Power Plus Skating reserves the right to move, reassign, adjust or combine students into different levels as necessary.
