Winter 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; a child must crawl before he or she walks, and must walk before he or she runs! Learn the fundamentals first then build on those skills to improve speed and agility. We teach individuals to skate at almost any age for fun, and to compete at the highest levels of ringette, hockey and speed skating.

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 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 MUST contact us to book an assessment or if none are available, register for Bronze to be placed in the appropriate skill level after being seen.

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

Dates for 2021:

Official Start Dates: March 19, 20, 21 2021

Evaluations: Skill evaluations take place on the 10th week of the Power Skating Session. As our levels are based on skill, the evaluations are to asses what skills each student has learned in the current session. We observe what skill level the student is at the time of evaluation and if they have mastered the required amount of skills they will move to the next level.

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