Dynamic Skating School

2024 Dynamic Skating School (DSS)


Program Information and Registration NOW Available


The Dynamic Skating School’s (DSS) goal is to develop the maximum efficiency generated in each and every skating stride. The DSS is focused training where skaters will develop proper technique, producing a more efficient and productive skater, resulting in a more effective hockey player.

The Dynamic Skating School will focus on skating mechanics, edges, balance, agility, and quickness. Our coaches understand the value of working to develop strengths and to improve weaknesses. Our goal is to introduce a basic foundation of all skating and skill techniques. When these techniques are mastered through repetition and practice under controlled situations, the next foundation - SPEED – will be the end result. Without proper technique, drills done at full speed become ineffective.

Program Overview
 

•    Skating Technique and Mechanics
•    Strength and Explosiveness
•    Balance and Efficiency

Areas of Focus
 

•    Edges and Balance
•    Lateral movements- Agility and Quickness
•    Transitions
•    Forward and Backward Crossovers
•    And much more!
