UBC Power Skating & Hockey Skills (Level 1) Review

The most important part of hockey is learning the fundamentals on how to skate properly. The first thing you should do is sign up for some power skating lessons. Here in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the University of British Columbia offers a course. Here’s the description:

This program is designed for players with minimal hockey experience. There is a strong emphasis on skating technique including: cross-overs, stopping, pivoting and backward skating. Sessions will also focus on the fundamentals of puck control, passing and shooting.

Prerequisites: Must be able to skate forwards.

Full Hockey Gear is Required.

Pricing: (7 sessions) $230; (6) $200

I will document each lesson in detail, and pass on any tips that I come across. Stay tuned.

Welcome to My Hockey Journey

We've all played hockey out in the streets when we were kids. Ball hockey and rollerhockey dominated my time outside. However, I never did get the chance to play "real hockey", aka ice hockey.

Get ready to follow my journey as I take you from the streets to the ice. Expect tips, tribulations, product reviews, and more. Welcome to My Hockey Journey.
