I hope you will agree that Power Skating is the most important skill in the game of hockey. I share the information below so that you can understand my approach to teaching Power Skating. Please know that my expectation is that your child will be a better skater and have a higher hockey IQ at the end of one of my programs.

Spring 2019, Driscoll Skating & Skills will be teaching Power Skating at the following locations:

  • Hobomock Arena (Pembroke)
  • Stoneham Arena (Stickhandling with Movement on Mondays and Power Skating on Wednesdays)
  • Warrior Arena in Brighton (Power Skating on Tuesdays and Thursdays)
  • Boch Ice Center in Dedham (Power Skating on Thursdays)
  • Chase Arena in Natick (Power Skating on Fridays).

Please note that the Thursday Warrior program is 8 110-minute sessions and will feature 60 minutes of Power Skating and Edge Work and 50 minutes of Stickhandling and Passing with Movement. Designed for players that have trained with us before.

Our approach is simple. We create a positive, hockey-rich environment that is primarily dedicated to teaching Power Skating. Our pace of play is deliberate and we follow a teaching blueprint: i) explanation of the drill; ii) demonstration of the drill by an instructor; iii) player performs drill; iv) correction of player at individual level v) repeat as necessary vi) move on to the following progression of the drill. We are always working towards execution of Power Skating movements at top speed. Extremely hands-on approach that values proper explanation and demonstration.

We deliver a progressive curriculum of drills that breaks down each Power Skating movement into its smaller individual components. The drills are accompanied by teaching and instruction that is also progressive, i.e., we tackle the basics of each drill first and then move towards mastery of each drill.

Players of all ages and skill levels benefit greatly from our approach.

Below please find clips of NHL players executing the Power Skating techniques to their advantage in NHL games. Each session will feature specific Power Skating components which include: Inside/Outside Edge; Long Stride; Crossovers; Tight Turns and Punch Step; Open Hip; Backwards Skating; Defensive Skating:
