Breaks everything down to fundamentals. Read it, then re-read it. And apply when you practice on the ice. I felt the difference after just a couple of weeks in a more powerful stride, better crossovers etc.

Excellent for all skill levels! 29 Oct. 2009
By D. Knelsen - Published on
Format: Paperback
Laura Stamm's power skating instruction is incredibly useful for all skill levels. This book is a gold mine of practical tools one can use to improve their own stride or to teach skating more effectively. I highly recommend Laura's work to anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of skating or to fix bad skating habits they've had for 15 years. An excellent resource!

This is the meat to the meal known as hockey skating 14 Mar. 2015
By Maine Marine - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great knowledge for power skating training. When I trained College Development [Mite, squirt, pee wee, midget] I had figure skating coaches train the children up to 'badge' level 8. This training gave them all the skills needed to excel at edge work. This book took those skills to the highest level of ability for each student. I highly recommend this book to Hockey Coaches, players and students of the game. Learn the skills to go from playing hockey to being a hockey player!
