Adult Power Skating & Hockey Skills

From beginner to advanced, we have a variety of co-ed power skating and hockey skills classes to choose from. Our physical literacy approach will increase your confidence on the ice, and you will learn or improve all the basic skills to fully enjoy the game of hockey.
The power skating courses will focus on teaching and improving all the fundamental skating skills, from stopping to crossovers, and help you develop good habits to help you improve your hockey game. The higher levels will include strength, conditioning and stamina components, as well as more advanced skating skills.
Our hockey skills are run like a team hockey practice: warmup, teaching individual puck skills, full ice drills, and a fun non contact scrimmage to end.

Choose from level 1, 2 or 3!

Levels 1 & 2 sign up for our “combo” class where you can take both power skating and hockey skills classes back to back for a discounted fee

Level 3 is a 1.5 hour combined class to get you in shape for your season or as an alternative to league play.

These camp-like programs run multiple times per week for the month of August and will have you in shape for the upcoming hockey season.

Notes: this is an instructional program, therefor full ice scrimmage time is limited, but you’ll be challenged by small area games and drills to put your game skills into practice.
