Power Skating at SMFSC
CanPower is an action-packed, high energy program that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. Developed by a team of hockey, figure skating and ringette experts, CanPower is the only nationally regulated power skating program in Canada.
Skaters wear full hockey gear and bring their stick + a water bottle. A mouthguard is recommended but not required.
Please note: CanPower is NOT a learn-to-skate program. Skaters must be able to skate forwards/backwards and stop independently (roughly equivalent to CanSkate Level 4). Skaters who register for a CanPower session without the necessary skating skills will be offered a refund for the remainder of the sessions.
Here’s what some of our past participants have told us:
“My son tried out for a Minor Novice Gold team in the Spring, and we know that he made the team because of the improvement in his skating during your Spring clinic.”
“When it came time for Gold tryouts in April, other parents were pulling me aside asking how my son’s backwards skating had improved so much. He improved really quickly in CanPower.”
“This was great for both of my sons. I’m looking forward to signing them up for the next session.”
Here’s what the professionals say:
From Jeff Skinner to Brian Boyle, here’s what they’re saying in the NHL at www.nhl.com
“What is it about figure skating that is so unique? It’s the use of edges, it's how we use our body to change direction on the ice. It's something that makes all hockey players go ‘oh’.”
Four-time world champion Kurt Browning
