Spring Power Skating

Once the regular season has come to an end, it is time to start to focus on your own development. Skating is the foundation in which the game is built on and all players regardless of position need to be able to move around the ice efficiently to be effective. All players have two different categories of skating; skating speed (without the puck) and puck speed (with the puck). The goal for players should be to bring their puck speed up to their skating speed so they can go just as fast with the puck as they can without it.

This spring, Jets Hockey Development will be offering players who want to get better the opportunity to enroll in a training program where they can work on specific topics needed to play the game at the highest levels. Designed and coached by Dave Cameron, these specific programs will allow players to work through detailed progressions to improve each time they step on the ice.

This is not a learn to skate program. This program will be a detailed breakdown of technical skating required to allow players to play at an elite level.
