Advanced Power Skating is for players who have mastered the PS 101 House league program. Building on the core skills learned in PS 101 HL, forward stride, stopping on both sides, backward stride and tight turns; players focus more skating with a puck at speed. Coaches may introduce forward edges and crossovers. It is important that backward skating is at a high competency before moving up to the next level.
With the goal of building the foundation for technically correct skating ability, we teach the following core skills:

- And adding puck control to all the skills above
The following skills must be mastered:
- Forward stride – at speed with a puck
- Tight Turns/U-turns with a puck

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