If you can't skate, you can't play!

Here at Sonya's Skating School, we add power, strength, endurance and speed to your skating. Our program will teach proper techniques in all aspects of skating. Individual corrections are given to each student.

We teach you the same drills to you and some of the foremost hockey players in the NHL!

Please note: Our program is not a "learn to skate school". All players must be able to skate both forwards and backwards.

Our Aim is:

    » to teach boot and blade awareness
    » to teach proper balance and posture
    » longer strides
    » controlled crossovers
    » improve speed & flow forwards and backwards
    » develop quick starts
    » improve self motivation and confidence
    » correct existing problems
    » improve overall skating technique

Revised Program for 2008

    »We have added pucks to some of our programs this year.
    »Our programs will now incorporate some stick handling into the skating drills.
    »development of strength, speed, agility, reflexes, and balance.
    »improved endurance thru cardiovascular drills, programmed to music
    »techniques are taught to ensure progress throughout their hockey careers.
