We start out each Hockey Factory camp teaching the Fundamentals of Skating. We believe that players who can't skate, can't play! 

Teaching proper skating technique isn't as simple as "do this", "now this", or "faster". We break skating down into many important groups such as:

  • Posture
  • Balance
  • Body Positioning
  • Upper Body Movement
  • Distribution of weight
  • Knee bend

Once these key techniques are understood then we broaden the framework of teaching skating with:

  • Edges
  • Quickness (in small areas)
  • Fast (in large areas)
  • Acceleration
  • Backwards Skating
