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.
