Hockey Skating Skills Boot Camp | Aug. 7-9:
The Gloucester Skating Club’s Hockey Skating Skills Boot Camp will be an action-packed, high energy instructional power skating three-day camp. Geared to hockey and ringette skaters, emphasis will be placed on developing stronger skating skills to help improve each participant’s game.
The Skating Skills focus:
- EDGE DEVELOPMENT
Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. Participants will be coached by Skate Canada CanPower certified coaches on the ice for 50 minutes each day followed by a 1 hour off-ice class taught by certified fitness trainers. A maximum of 20 skaters per grouping will be accepted. Two certified coaches plus two hockey assistants will be on the ice providing ample opportunities for individual feedback for all the participants. Our coaches will be following the Skate Canada CanPowerSkate Program during the three-day Boot Camp.
GSC’s Hockey Skating Skills Boot Camp is geared to skaters aged approximately six or older who already have basic forward and backward skating skills (they must be able to skate the length of the rink using alternate strides) and are able to stop on command.
