We will be holding U10 (2008/09) and Mite (2010/11/12) evaluations in the Fall. All Mites will make a team. We will be opening Mite registration this spring so that we can accurately enter the correct number of teams in the Mite Cross Ice League. U10 Girls Hockey registration will also open in the spring so we can assess the number of girls who would like to play. U10 girls who attend fall evaluations will either be placed on U10 Travel Team or Travel Development Squirt Team.
High Performance Power Skating at GSC is back for Session 2!!
The Session starts Tuesday, January 16th
Register NOW! Session is capped at 30 skaters!
Who needs power?
Power is strength, but it is also technique. Skating technique (proper posture, stance and skating stride) directly affects balance, acceleration and skating speed. Little can be accomplished unless you can move FAST on the ice -- with or without the puck -- stop to go, slow to fast, skating forward, skating backward, cornering, turning, transitioning. Better form --> better efficiency --> more endurance --> stronger player! *Please note that hoceky players must wear helmets and gloves!
Power and technique allow you to maintain or increase your speed while executing skating moves, control your movements with precise edge work, improve your extension for better flow. Better technique will lead to more success with all aspects of your skating -- stroking, jumps and spins.
NEW this year....High Performance Power Skating!!
Designed for enthusiastic skaters (both hockey & figure) who want to improve the performance of their skating skills. Classes will emphasize proper technique training for the purpose of becoming more powerful, stable, explosive, efficient and faster skaters. Technique lessons will include power, edge control and quality, posture, carriage, extension, quickness and flow -- specific stance and stride mechanics to help players maximize acceleration and speed, and posture and edgework to create low center of gravity, and balance so players won't get knocked off the puck.
