hockey FALL/WINTER Kids Power Skating Give your child’s skating ability a boost with power skating. These programs focus on improving skating skill development. We teach and emphasize proper technique, form, speed and skill as they apply to the game of Hockey or Ringette. • Please note: Power Skating is for skaters who already have basic skating skills. If your skater is new to Hockey or Ringette, please register them in a Kids Skate program. KIDS POWER 1 (Timbits/Novice) | age 6-9 For kids in their first, second, or third year of hockey or ringette who can skate forwards, backwards, stop, and turn. We will teach skills like two-foot stops, c-cuts, tight turns, and improve balance, stride and coordination on skates. • Important: Due to the nature of this course, skaters must be able to listen well and follow the coach’s instruction. We can only accept children over the age of 6 at this time. If your child is 5, a Tots Skate class will suit them best. • This course is also suitable for older skaters who are just beginning hockey or ringette or are in house league hockey. KIDS POWER 2 (Atom/Peewee) | 9-13 years Could your player benefit from expert skating instruction to become a more efficient skater? We will break down skating skills to correct common mistakes and improve their skating technique. Each class will have a specific focus. For example: starts and stops, balance and gliding, forward stride, backward movement, transitions, turning and crossovers using inside and outside edge control. • Important info for Novice players: Second-year novice players at the 1-2 level and who have permission from the instructor may also register in this level. Other Novice players, please register in the Timbits/Novice course. Kids Hockey Play hockey for fun! Join us for a positive recreational hockey experience.
