Prerequisite: Hockey players age 6-12 who have completed CanSkate Stage 2 OR have equivalent skating skills (see minimum below) OR on coach recommendation.
A 40-minute co-ed program taught by our NCCP Certified CanPowerSkate Professional Coaches. The CanPower program is endorsed by Hockey Canada as the National powerskating program. This action packed, high-energy, instructional power skating program focuses on power, balance, agility, speed and endurance. Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format.
At minimum, players must be able to skate the perimeter of the ice without their stick, push with both feet, skate forwards and backwards, stop, balance and glide on one foot. Coaches will assess participants on first night and reserve the right to recommend a switch in program if required skills are not met.
Full hockey equipment is recommended but not required. This program is NOT a learn-to-skate program - minimum skating skills noted above are taught through our Canskate program.
