The goal of our adult skating skills class is to improve your skating ability and to make you feel more comfortable on the ice! As we like to say, the game follows the feet. In this 8-week class, skaters will learn the proper form and footwork necessary to play the fast pace game of hockey, including beginner and advanced power skating, drills to improve forward stride and backward stride, crossovers, transitions, quick starts, hockey stops, turns, and much more! In just 8 short weeks, you will learn the proper techniques of skating to skate more efficiently up and down the ice. This class is for anyone 18 years or older looking to improve their skating, including skaters with little or no skating experience and intermediate skaters seeking to improve their skills.

It is recommended that skaters in this class also participate in the Adult Game Tactics and Positioning Class. These two classes will be taught to complement one another. The Game Tactics & Positioning Class will give you the tools to react to the different situations in the game of hockey. You will learn game concepts, positioning, how to play with & without the puck, as well as situational awareness of when to use the different skating skills provided in the Skating Skills class. Plus, as a bonus, receive $100 OFF when you sign up for both classes! Ask about our Adult Learn to Play special in the Pro Shop or register for both classes at the same time online to get $100 OFF when you sign up!
