Learn to Play Hockey
Do you have a young one in your family who wants to know how to play ice hockey? On the surface, the game seems fairly straightforward. Skate down the ice, hit a puck, and make a goal. But there is much more to it than that and if you want to learn to play hockey well, you need to know the full story of how to play ice hockey.
Here is a note from one of the parents: Hi Jim, It was a pleasure speaking to you this evening about hockey! Alexandre is soooooo excited about joining on Sunday!! He did a complete year last year in hockey and did really well, so we are hoping he will have another great year with a new team! Looking forward to meeting the team on Sunday at 1:15 at Kinsmen Arena on Elphinstone ! We really thank you for the warm hospitality!
There has been some confusion as to what is the definition of power skating. It is not for figure skaters. Power skating was designed to improve and master skating techniques for both hockey and ringette players. It is not a miracle program, like they say "what you put in, is what you get out," we cannot expect to take one power skating lesson and then become a superstar, it takes time, practice and dedication to become an excellent skater. Power skating is not only for straight line acceleration, but for all skating skill areas, backward skating, tight glide turns, forward and backward crossovers, are just a few areas we focus on. So the end result of power skating lessons with us means a complete skater in ALL areas.
Todd Liskowich will be handling the Power Skating Program this year. His certification includes: Introduction to Coaching, Development I, Body Checking, NCCP A level, NCCP B level and the CanPower Skating Instructor Certification.
Something new this year, skaters will use their sticks every 4th ice time.
