It feels good to be the parent of the child that people point to and say, “Wow, that kid can skate” – and it feels even better to be that child.
Those little kids zooming around the ice are discovering what it feels like to be strong, co-ordinated, and confident – while having fun. Put them into a hockey or ringette program and they have an excellent foundation for success, and they then get to experience how great it feels to be an active, capable member of a team.
The Comox Valley Skating Club’s Power Skate Program has been making this happen for kids from age five and up for several years. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for a more advanced Power Skate Program being offered Thursdays from 6 to 6:45 p.m. on Nov. 14 to Dec. 5.
This Power Skate program is specifically aimed at kids who play hockey or ringette. The program begins and ends with an individual assessment of each of the players. Classes are fast-paced and include interval training, agility drills, edge control work, acceleration exercises, and above all, lots of skating.
Power Skate coach Greg Ladret is an NCCP Level 3 skating coach certified in Power Skate and Speed Skate. He has been coaching Power Skate for 20 years, the last five of them in the Comox Valley.
“It’s always great seeing how fast kids progress in this program, and then watching them go on to excel at their sport” says Ladret. “This program offers them the skills to move from being on ice spectators to play makers”.
Players will train in full gear. This program is limited to 24 players. Register early to ensure your space. To register call 250- 339-9872 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
