Winter 2021 - Advanced - Skating & Skills

The Advanced Skating and Skills Program is designed to develop great habits through the proper techniques. On-ice, skaters will focus on stride location for individual skating skills. Skaters will master transitions from forwards to backwards effective and efficiently. While mastering puck control, skaters will learn to stickhandle around their bodies and evolve into shooting techniques concentrating on creating flex from their stick using a push and pull motion. This program focuses on a well-rounded approach to the skater’s skill development.  

Mastery Keys
