CanPowerSkate 

This program focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance skills, all of which are especially important for hockey and ringette players.

Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasize proper mechanical execution and also how the skills apply to game situations.

CanPowerSkate provides an alternative to figure skating and is an excellent complement for those athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams. Its unique skill award program provides incentives and motivation for skaters to continue to achieve.

CanPowerSkate is geared to skaters who already have basic forward and backward skating skills (they must be able to skate the length of the rink using alternate strides) and are able to stop on command without use of the boards. For safety reasons participants should wear full hockey/ringette equipment that is CSA approved. The coach to skater ratio is 1:10.
 

Pre-CanPower

Designed for younger skaters who can stand up on skates and move forward (shuffle, walk or glide) who may not be ready for CanPowerSkate Level 1.

Pre-CanPower helps develop basic skating abilities in a power skating-specific environment, including balance skills, forward and backward skating, stopping, turning and agility skills. The curriculum is presented in three progressive levels complete with its own awards to encourage participation and motivate skaters.

Pre-CanPower has been designed to run concurrently with CanSkate sessions.
