Summer Adult Power Skating and Hockey Skills

Improve your skating; improve your game. If you play hockey, we teach and emphasize proper technique, form, speed and skill as they apply to the game. Please note: Power Skating is for those who already have a solid foundation of basic skating skills, it is not a learn to skate program.

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.

Dinos Hockey Camps
