Based on experience, research and RESULTS, this system covers all aspects of skating. By using biomechanically correct techniques each player will improve their speed, edges, agility and balance. Skating is the only skill being performed by every player on the ice at any given moment which is the reason why a huge emphasis should be on skating development.

$40 per session

Max 16 players.
