Get a step up on the competition with CanPowerSkate, a high-energy instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette players. This program focuses on balance, control and agility skills including components of power and speed. Skating skills, techniques and performance drills are taught in a progressive format by Skate Canada coaches certified through the NCCP to enhance the skating ability required in game situations.

Our new CanPower director is Marty Haubrich. Marty comes to us from Dubuc, Saskatchewan. He is CanPower trained, has attended several WHL training camps with the Kelowna Rockets and has training with the SJHL team in Saskatchewan. Marty played competitive hockey at the midget AA level throughout his teen years before he decided to focus his efforts on pairs figure skating. Marty is a national junior medallist, international medallist and a senior pair athlete for Team Canada. He is excited to bring his expertise to our Brantford power skaters.
