Hurricane Powerskating has developed a player centered philosophy for maximum learning potential. We are committed to implementing and maintaining a positive and engaging learning environment for players to gain exponential results. Hurricane Powerskating camps develop the FUNdamentals skills of hockey and ringette through powerskating (specifically edge control), station based drills, and small area games. Hurricane Powerskating relies heavily on the experience of it's dedicated team of certified instructors (Hockey Canada and Ringette Alberta). We believe we have a devoted team of instructors who are not only knowledgable in youth development, but have a passion for working with kids.
Our camps will be paced appropriately to challenge all skaters with drills/activities that are innovative and unique. Drill progression and repetition will allow each player to be an active participant in their own skill development. The overall development as a complete player is directly related to their skating ability. Our goal is to make each player a stronger competitor with increased confidence in their abilities.
