PowerSkate is an action-packed, high energy instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette skaters that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. PowerSkate provides an alternative to figure skating and is an excellent complement for those athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams. Its unique skill award program provides incentives and motivation for skaters to continue to achieve.

PowerSkate is geared to skaters aged approximately six or older who already have basic forward and backward skating skills (they must be able to skate the length of the rink using alternate strides) and are able to stop on command without use of the boards. For safety reasons participants should wear full hockey/ringette equipment that is CSA approved. The coach to skater ratio is 1:10.

Pre-Power (U7 PowerSkate)

PowerSkate’s Pre-Power (U7 PowerSkate) is designed for young skaters, approximately four to six years of age who can stand up on skates and have some ability to skate forward, backward and attempt stopping.  This program is designed for skaters who may not be ready for PowerSkate Level 1 but have previous experience with PreCanSkate, CanSkate or hockey or ringette programs. This is not a learn-to-skate program. Pre-Power helps develop basic skating abilities in a power skating-specific environment, including balance skills, forward and backward skating, stopping, turning and agility skills. The curriculum is presented in three progressive levels.


Please note: These programs are not learn-to-skate oriented. Your skater must have experience skating forward/walking backward/attempting stops for the Pre-Power (U7) program.


Important: Full hockey/ringette gear (including neck guards and jocks/jills) are required for these programs. Please bring a stick and water bottle along as well.


If your skater has no skating experience, please check out the PreCanSkate/CanSkate programs that LFSC offers, or email for inquiries.
