Our Power Skating Services
1. Skating Technique: Our experienced coaches are committed to improving each skater’s technique. We focus on areas such as balance, stride efficiency, power generation, and agility to help players gain a competitive edge.
2. Speed Development: Speed is a game-changer in hockey. We work on increasing a player’s acceleration and top-end speed, giving them the ability to outpace opponents and create scoring opportunities.
3. Edge Control: Strong edge control is vital in hockey. Our drills and exercises help players master their edges, enabling precise turns and quick changes in direction.
4. Balance and Stability: Skating requires impeccable balance. We teach young athletes to maintain balance under various conditions, enhancing their ability to protect the puck and stay on their feet during contact.
5. Endurance and Stamina: Hockey players need to maintain a high level of energy throughout a game. Our training enhances stamina, ensuring players can perform at their best during the third period.
6. Confidence Building: Skating improvement leads to increased confidence on the ice. We provide a supportive environment where players can take risks and develop their skills without fear of failure.
At Little Strides Power Skating, our commitment is to help young hockey players develop their skating fundamentals, ultimately propelling them to greater success on the ice. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to grow as athletes, fostering a love for the game that will last a lifetime.

- Check that skates are sharp and laced up properly.
- Be wearing gloves, long pants or tights, and a light sweater or jacket.
- Ensure that their helmet is certified.
- Parent must wear skates on ice.
Little Lemon's Safety Checklist
Throughout every lesson, our coaches do their best to ensure your little skater’s safety. Our instructors are experienced at encouraging children of varying ages to practice safe skating habits and preventing collisions during lessons. Some of the precautions Little Lemons’ coaches take to protect our skaters are:
- Name tags are given out during the first session and are skaters are required to wear them to identify the child.
- On the ice, our instructors explain the importance of being cautious with blades and toe picks to avoid the danger of running over fingers.
- Constant reminders will be given during lessons to form safe habits in the skaters when practicing unsafe behaviour.
