Snowplow Sam (SPS)
Snowplow Sam 1-4 invites children age 6 and younger to learn the joys of ice skating in a safe, introductory setting. Young skaters will have fun while learning how to fall and get back up, how to march across the ice and ultimately build confidence in themselves and their abilities. The classes, divided into four progressive levels for kids with no prior skating experience, help preschool-age skaters develop the coordination and strength to move across the ice.
The Basic Skills curriculum is available to skaters over the age of 6 who are taking their first steps on the ice. Instructors use engaging activities to teach the FUNdamentals of ice skating. The six progressive levels introduce forward and backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers and turns with agility, balance, coordination and speed as main focuses. Through these skills, skaters enter the first stage of skills to begin exploring the world of skating.
Each free skate level is comprised of a variety of progressive skating skills, transitions, spins and jumps — all of which build on the previous skill, providing skaters a strong foundation of all elements. These levels will be taught in a positive and interactive group format such as a bridge program, circuit classes or as an introductory training program. Instructors will focus on quality and mastery of skills.
Youth Hockey Development will reinforce skating skills learned in Hockey 1 & 2 classes, and will introduce advanced hockey skills in full equipment. An emphasis on stick handling, passing, and shooting skills in a high-paced environment will prepare players for team play.
This one of a kind class helps develop correct technique right from the start and helps skaters reach their full potential. Hockey Power focuses on forward and backward skating, stops, turns, transitions and explosive starts. Skaters become more powerful, stable, explosive, and efficiently fast.
