Welcome to the Vegas Golden Knights Skating Academy's Power Skating Program!
Skating technique has remained the most neglected factor in hockey fundamentals. Hockey players at every age fail to realize their full potential because they do not spend enough time focusing on their individual skating skills.
Power skating focuses on skating skills for hockey players.
During a game, a player has so much to think about: stick handling, passing, shooting, strategy, etc. that they have little time to focus on skating technique and how to react on skates to unexpected situations and sudden changes in play.
A player’s skating ability must therefore be tuned so sharply and practiced so consistently that their reactions become second nature. We can focus on power skating skills in private lessons, small groups and/or teams.
Chad Goodwin is a power skating instructor and competitive figure skating coach. He works with all levels of hockey players who are looking to improve on their hockey skating skills.
Chad is CanPower and PSA 1 power skating certified.
He's had the opportunity to work with power skating instructor Gay Dubeau at Platinum Star Power Skating who works with Elite Junior & NHL levels players.
