PowerSkate with POWSC

Our club has led the way in developing new programs including PrePower for younger skaters, and we are the longest-running program in the Province.

The POWSC PowerSkate program was featured in the program for Mastercard Skate Canada International in November 2006. If you missed this excellent article, you can view it here

CanPowerSkate is the only nationally regulated power skating program in Canada. It was developed by a team of hockey, figure skating, and ringette experts to teach the fundamentals of power skating in a progressive and sequential manner.
