Powerskating with Dave Maksymiu

These Powerskating clinics will be run by Dave Maksymiu and the RIC Academy.  They are designed as a pre-tryout clinic.  This means that the clinics will cover specific skating skills that coaches like to see in tryouts, as well as skating skills that will help your player be more prepared.  

Some of the skills covered will be: open ice speed with and without the puck, quick starts, crossovers, tight turns, transitions and more.

The two clinics will be progressive in some aspects and repetitive in others.  Players will be divided into groups by age and skill level and it is up to each player to challenge themselves to the best of their ability.  

These clinics are open to players from 2011 up to 2004 birth years.
