This is for all new skaters, any individual that has not participated in the LTS program will start here. Only exception will be skaters who are older and have had formal skating experience. As with all levels, coaches reserve the right to move skaters up at any time. To advance, all skaters at this level must be able to fully function on the ice without assistance of a walker. Skater must be able to get up off the ice without assistance, move across the width of the ice without assistance, and have a basic grasp of balance.
At the completion or pasing of the walker level, skaters will advance to the Beginner level. This level will concentrate on edge work and control through c-cuts going both forward and backwards, stride (push and recover,) snow plow stops, and basic transitions from forward to backwards and backwards to forward. After mastering these skills, skaters will have the option to split off into Hockey specific or Figure Skating specific classes.
At the completion or passing of the beginner level, skaters will advance to the intermediate level. This level will focus on edge control, cross over (both forwards and backwards) and snow plow and hockey stops. After mastering these skills, skaters will have the option to split off into hockey specific or figure skating specific classes.
Hockey basics students will use helmets, gloves, and sticks. Areas of focus will be cross-overs, transitions, and pivots, backward and forward strides, inside outside edge control, hockey stops (both forward and backward), power starts, cross-over starts, balance and agility, lock point turns, and speed transitions.
Figure skating basics will focus on edge work, balance, agility, starts, stops as well as '3' turns, and swizzles. As the class advances participants will begin the fundamentals of skating backwards and backwards edge work. The goal for this class is to empower the participantion and build "love of the ice" while working on individual and group skills.
This advanced level of hockey will focus on all the skills listed above but at a more intense level, skaters that will be in this class will have to test in and all decisions regarding placement in this program will be left up to the Hockey Skating Director. This class might not be offered every session.
Please note that these are classes and not one on one private lessons. Our goal is to ensure that class size is not more than 6 students to one instructor. All instructors will be members of the Junior Wild Hockey program. They will be taught how and what to instruct by Junior Wild coaches Tom Winkler and Nick Adamek.
