Burlington, Canada, August 25, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The fall session at the Wave Sports Centre will be highlighted by several valuable sessions sure to help skaters sharpen their power skating skills, according to former hockey pro Jarret Reid, who’s the centre’s head instructor.
“The Wave is a great resource to skaters of all ages and skill levels because our team understands the latest developments in skating training,” Jarret Reid said. “Our goal is to help everyone advance their skills, and power skating is critical to making that happen.”
Reid will lead three sessions dedicated to power skating:
High Performance Power Skating. Open to Rep and House League players 8 and older, the class emphasizes such skills as first-step quickness, lateral movement, stick handling and power and acceleration.
PEP, Power Edge Pro. This program emphasizes small area skills training and is a must for skaters to master if they intend to compete at the elite level. It’s open to Rep players, ages 9 through 13.
Power Skating. Younger players aged 5 through 8 will learn the basic power skating skills and techniques, equipping them to become strong and fast on the ice. There are beginner and advance classes.
Jarret Reid has been associated with the Wave since 2005, joining the facility after hanging up his skates as a professional in 2005. A professionally certified instructor, he has coached several successful Burlington-based minor hockey teams, including the Junior Cougars Hockey program in Burlington. The program is intended as a pathway for youngsters to NCAA play.
Jarret Reid was a sixth round pick of the National Hockey League’s Hartford Whalers before moving on to play in the AHL and Europe for 15 years.
