Skating Treadmill

Our Off-Ice Power Skating Class offers a proven method for improving a players skating stride, speed, and power through the exclusive use of our skating treadmills. With a limited 2:1 Player to Coach ratio, players will experience in-depth individual feedback on the complex aspects involved in their skating stride. Our treadmills allow for 2 main types of improvement to a players skating:

  • Technique: Individualized coaching focus will include the following; body positioning, stride length, and correct motion patterns to increase stride efficiency. Since most young players are visual learners, the treadmill system offers an opportunity for players to watch themselves in the mirror as well as use video play back. This is critical in the development of their understanding of correct movement patterns in their skating technique.
  • Power/Endurance: Once a player is able to build his foundation of efficient motions and correct technique, the treadmill allows him to increase his/her power and endurance through repetition and time under tension. It allows a player to build up muscle groups and endurance that directly translate to on ice performance in a unique way because they are able to work on these things in the skating position (as opposed to bike, running, lifting, etc.).

Regardless of your current skating level, this class will improve a player’s technique, power and endurance.
