HOCKEY / RINGETTE
SKATING SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
Our program is an action packed, high energy instructional skating skills development program geared to hockey and ringette skaters 7 years and up (Hockey Division U8 and up), that focuses on SKATING SKILLS: balance, power, agility, speed, and endurance. Skills, technique, and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. This program provides an alternative to figure skating, and is an excellent complement for those athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams.
Our program is designed for skaters who already have basic forward and backward skating skills with the ability to stop on command without use of the boards: Hockey Division U8 to Rep hockey players, or by coach's discretion.
**Skaters not meeting the above minimum skating requirements, should register for the CANSkate Learn to Skate Program before entering this program.
Equipment: Skaters should wear full hockey/ringette gear (including sticks, but no pucks).
*Pucks will not be used on these sessions.
