The CanPowerSkate program is designed to focus on the development of skating skills and is taught by an NCCP Certified Coach. Recognizing that skating is a foundational skill for hockey and ringette, this program allows for the opportunity to focus on skating outside the game or practice. Teaching and developing proper skating technique is the main focus of the program.

Program Overview:
BALANCE CONTROL AGILITY
Stance Stops Slaloms
Forward Stride Backward Stride Tight Turns
Forward Edges Backward Edges Eagle and Mohawk Turns
Forward Crossovers Backward Crossovers Reverse Pivot Turns
Forward Lateral Movement Backward Lateral Movement Starts
 
Participants will be taught in a progressional format:
  1. Correct technique
  2. Correct technique with speed
  3. Correct technique with pucks or rings
  4. Correct technique with speed, with a puck or ring and under stress (game situations)
Participants will be assessed based on a continuum of development that will indicate skills at an early, moderate or advanced stage of development.
