IESC requires a minimum number of registrations to run this program failing which we may be forced to cancel this session.
A CSA approved hockey helmet is required and kids MUST wear full hockey/ringette gear and bring a stick. In the summer FULL hockey gear is required because we use black pucks and rings.
Participants must be 6 years of age or older and at a minimum be able to skate forward and backwards and have played at least one year of a registered Hockey or Ringette Canada program. This is not a beginner Hockey Program but a program designed to work with hockey and ringette players who want to improve their skating skills.
Those wanting to learn to skate to go on to play hockey or ringette should sign up for CANSkate in the fall and work through badges 1,2 & 3 including ribbons in control, balance and agility in Canskate before entering this program. Ice Edge Skating Club will be offering the CANSkate program in the Fall and Winter 2023/2024 season.
Hockey/Ringette Skills is a technical instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette skaters that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed, and endurance while working on the fundamentals of skating go forwards, go backwards, stop, turn, jump and spin. Skills, techniques, and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. Sessions are designed to accommodate skaters at different levels as the groups are small and the skaters work to their level in the group being given modifications. Lots of feedback and coaching is given during each session.
The classes will be taught by coach Candice Campbell-Behm who has been a professional skating coach since 1998. She is working on her Masters in Science majoring in exercise science and sports psychology. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree, a physical education diploma and personal fitness trainer certificate.
Candice is a National certified coach with Skate Canada, mentor coach and Chartered Professional Coach with Coaching Canada and has coached Internationally, Nationals, Provincials, the AB Winter Games, and a team lead for Western Canadians. Candice is also a personal fitness trainer at the Glencoe Club since 2000. She has won awards from Skate Canada and Skate Alberta and been a presenter at various high performance conferences. Candice coach(ed) in community, hockey schools and various academies, teams, and professional programs around the Calgary area.
Candice specializes in skating skills, edge work and agility and has mentored off coaches who were former players from various NHL teams. Her eye for the mechanics and edges forms from her years of being a competitive athlete and over 25 years of coaching experience.
Candice works with players ranging from Learn to Skate to Pro Players and has over 4000 hours of experience with preschool aged children which has helped her design a program that effectively teaches the fundamental and attended hockey camps and clinics around the world. She believes eventually fast forward skating catches up to a player and learning weight transfer and correct balance points on the blades is essential to be a stronger skater. What separates a great hockey player from a good hockey
player is skating skills.
- skating skills should always be worked on throughout the periodization of a hockey player's training;
- in helping athletes achieve their goals in a positive and safe environment that pushes the athlete to become the best version of them self.
Additionally, Candice sat on the community of practice for Safe Sport Canada and anti-racism in sport. Candice has volunteered with Community hockey as the Timbits coordinator and for 6 years with Novice to Pee Wee evaluations. She has been a league chair with Hockey Calgary for 3 years, with the Macs Midget for 2 years and the Canada Games.
