Dry land benefits skaters immensely. It gives the coaches an opportunity to walk skaters through the proper techniques in jumps and other elements so that they are able to execute them easier on ice. These sessions will also offer goal setting sessions, nutrition education and other strength building sessions to help our athletes lead a healthy, positive lifestyle.
AM Ice Training:
Morning On-Ice Training is also available for StarSkaters who desire extra edges, jumps and spins training. Coaching and ice time is included in registration fees.
Wednesdays, 6:30 - 7:30am
Fridays, 6:30 - 7:30am
