  Skating Technique for Hockey

Skating Technique for Hockey

Our Figure Skating Director, Karen Cohen-Prosnitz, teaches the Program.   She has been a full time professional skating coach for over 40 years. Karen is a US Figure Skating Gold Medalist having competed in Freestyle, Pair Skating and Ice Dancing throughout the United States and internationally.  She also trained in speed skating and power skating.

Karen has been teaching power skating and edges to hockey skaters.  Her skating techniques begin with understanding the interaction between mental and muscle function to train the entire body, using correct edge positioning and balance to increase power and agility.  Fast efficient skating is the goal. 

NHL Players have benefitted from this training and so can you!
"If you can't skate, you can't play our game," Wayne Gretzky.

Balance, Agility and Maneuverability (BAM)

"If you're using improper technique quickly, all it means is you'll go nowhere faster."
 Bill Guerin, former professional NHL hockey player and three-time Olympian.
