The primary focus will be on breaking down and teaching proper skating mechanics to increase speed, agility and quickness.  The secondary focus will be multi directional transitions and backward skating while promoting creativity for players.

Each day will begin with specialized edge work catered to the skill level of the players in the class.  

Specifically, 20 minutes of each day will be dedicated to backwards skating.  Backwards skating leads to better balance and drastically improves players transitions and skating creativity on the ice.

There will be a concentration on functional edge work and application while learning to use specific body mechanics and gravity to leverage speed.  Players will progress to skating with pucks throughout the program and improving their puck control.
