With the rule changes in today's game of hockey, skating has become the most important skill required to play the sport competitively. Coaches and Scouts alike agree that skating ability is the first thing they look for when choosing players. Sadly, skating is often over looked by young aspiring hockey players and has become the least trained skill in hockey. Players spend countless hours training in a gym, however gone are the days where size and skill alone would get you to the next level. It should also be noted that because of the unconventional movement of skating, there is nothing that can train skating except actually being on the ice, thus we believe players need to balance their training and incorporate power skating into their schedules.

Like being in a gym, there is no 'quick fix'. You can not take one lesson and master the skill of skating. In truth, skating is a skill that requires years of hard work and dedication. Players serious about playing at the next level must put time and effort into improving their skating as it is your skating ability that is directly responsible for the improvement of every other skill in hockey! For instance, you can not improve your slap shot without first concentrating on your balance, edge control and transfer of weight; they are directly linked. In short, your skating ability controls your overall skill level.


Wayne Gretzky has said, "If you can't skate, you can't play our sport", and how right he is!
