Top notch skating dynamics
Power skating will be designed around taking the students out of their comfort zones and pushing them to become a more efficient and powerful skater. We will go back to basics and teach all the tools for amping up each students skating the their true potential. It will include lessons on forward and backwards stride, starts, stopping, power turns, lateral mobility and an overall emphasis on DPS (Distance Per Stride) for all aspects of skating. Pucks will be incorporated to reinforce good skating habits while handling a puck. Players can expect a progressive learning curve to a plateau of perfect technique and efficiency. 
Building confidence in game type situation
We will break down the individual skills each student needs to gain confidence for the finer points of the game. We will put pucks on the kids sticks and push them to become more confident and more creative in game situations. They should expect to learn the proper methods of stick handling, shooting, passing and how to better use the ice to their advantage in game situations. We will start off slow to ensure proper technique and as the students progress we will get their feet moving to incorporate the skating dynamics with their new found confidence to make these skills permanent.
Small Area Games
The use of  small area games or battle style games is important for creativity, competitive edge as well as put the other skills learned to work in realistic situation. Having the players learn to be confident in a controlled environment will help them recognize the same situations in a game scenario.
