This program has been created for many, many players that feel they have a strong forward and backward stride; they may have taken a couple of PS 101 Advanced sessions or attending for the first time. This is a higher tempo PS 101 Advanced session. There will emphasis on backward stride perfection and forward stride tweaking. Forward Edges are added to this sessions as well as introduction to forward crossovers.  Stopping will not be covered. Tight turns will be reviewed.

With the goal of building the foundation for technically correct skating ability, we teach the following core skills:

  • Forward Stride with and without a puck
  • Backward stride with and without a puck
  • Tight Turns with and without a puck
  • Forward Edges
  • Forward Crossovers

The following skills must be mastered:  

  • Forward stride – at speed with a puck
  • Tight Turns/U-turns with a puck
  • Backward stride with a puck
  • Forward Edges

Players often repeat this session 2-3 times to achieve mastery before moving on to Power Skating 201.
