Power Skating Coach
Kevin is a NCCP Certified Power Skating Coach with Skate Canada. Kevin has taught Power Skating for Twin City Hockey Skating School, Wilmot Wolverines, Girls Hockey Association, and the AAA Huron/Perth Lakers. He has also taught privately up to Jr. B Level. Kevin currently coaches all levels of the Skate Canada Program in New Hamburg and Stratford.
Kevin believes that proper techniques that are taught properly and practiced correctly will help skaters improve at a faster speed. Power skating helps the stronger players hone in on their skills and allows the weaker skaters the ability to catch up! Kevin’s goal with Power Skating is to provide all skaters with the knowledge necessary to help them enjoy their hockey or ringette experience!
