CanPower – Ringette & Hockey

CanPowerSkate is an excellent complement for those athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams. It 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 without use of the boards. For safety reasons, participants should wear full hockey/ringette equipment that is CSA approved.

The Fall CanPowerSkate schedule can be found HERE!

CanPower (IP and Novice- 6 yrs to 8 yrs) 50 min sessions

These power skating sessions will focus on the twenty skating skills with a strong emphasis on stopping, tight turns and crossovers. Pucks will be used for some skills and the intensity level of the session will be brisk. This session is for ages 6 to 8 who can already skate at a decent level. 

  • Equipment: CSA approved hockey helmets are required, and helmet cages are strongly recommended. Skaters must wear full hockey gear (shoulder pads, elbow pads, hockey pants, shin pads, gloves) and hockey skates. Mouth guards are recommended but not required. Gear is not available to rent, so participants must make arrangements to have full gear by the first session. Participants without appropriate gear will not be permitted on the ice.
