Calalta PowerSkate is an action-packed, high energy instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette skaters that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. PowerSkate is an excellent complement for those athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams.
Calalta PowerSkate is geared to skaters in Novice or Atom level hockey or ringette equivalent. For safety reasons participants should wear full hockey/ringette equipment that is CSA approved.
Calalta Pre-PowerSkate is designed for young skaters, approximately four to six years of age who can stand up on skates and move forward (shuffle, walk or glide) who may not be ready for PowerSkate and currently playing in Timbit hockey. Pre-Power helps develop basic skating abilities in a power skating-specific environment, including balance skills, forward and backward skating, stopping, turning and agility skills. The curriculum is presented in three progressive levels complete with its own awards to encourage participation and motivate skaters. Pre-Power has been designed to run concurrently with CanSkate sessions.
