Novice Powerskating Fundamentals with Dave Schultz

Our Novice division players and coaches have been hard at work this October with each getting an extra practice per week dedicated to our new Novice Powerskating Fundamentals program developed and delivered by Dave Schultz. 

The purpose of the program is to develop strong skating skills within this age group and also to empower our volunteer coaches by providing them the necessary knowledge to teach skating skill. 

There was no extra cost to Novice families as this program was funded through fundraising activities such as our hosted Novice tournaments. 

The feedback from Novice families and coaches on the program ..and coach Dave has been overwhelmingly positive. We look forward to scaling this program to other divisions going forward.

  • NCCP learning facilitator for CanPowerSkate program (only nationally recognized power skating program)
