Powerskating can be an important skill for ringette players to have to enhance their playing ability and overall success in the sport.
The Association provides a number of powerskating resources and instruction for teams during the regular season. These sessions are provided in addition to regular practice ice provided to teams.
If you are seeking additional and individualized instruction, there are a number of services (external to St.Albert Ringette) around the Greater Edmonton area and within St.Albert. If you have any questions about the benefits of powerskating or would like some assistance in identifying options available to receive powerskating instruction outside the association please reach out to your coach, the Development Director or any member of the Board who can connect you with someone who can assist you.
For new ringette players - powerskating might not be the necessary first step - any opportunities to learn and develop skating skills (e.g. CanSkate) will contribute positively to player's development. And even just getting out and skating during public skating or during the winter on outdoor rinks will help your player with this skill as well!
