Power skating is a program that is designed to improve and master skating techniques for both hockey and ringette players. Power Skating provides skaters with a session to focus on their skating abilities, which can then be transferred to hockey practices and games.
It takes time, practice and dedication to become an excellent skater. Power skating is not only for straight line acceleration but for all skating skill areas, backward skating, tight glide turns, forward/backward crossovers, etc.
New Hamburg Power is taught by Kevin Winter. He is a fully certified power skating coach. Kevin has taught Power Skating for Twin City Hockey Skating School, Wilmot Wolverines Girls Hockey Association, and the AAA Huron/Perth Lakers. He has also taught privately up to Jr.B Level.
Kevin has operated New Hamburg Power for nine years and currently co-operates Ice Stage Power Skating School in Stratford.
Power skating helps the stronger players hone in on their skills and allows the weaker skaters can catch up. Kevin believes that proper techniques that are taught properly and practiced correctly will help skaters improve at a faster pace.
Kevin's goal with Power Skating is to provide all skaters with the knowledge necessary to help them enjoy their hockey or ringette experience.
