TIPS FROM THE PROS

Skating reckless with skate weights can cause bad habits. Here’s some tips to improve skating technique taught at the University of Notre Dame Level 4 coaches training.

  1. Skate low with knees bent, back 10 degrees up from the ice or boards, and most importantly, head up.
  2. One hand on the stick while sprinting with stick straight out, not on an angle.
  3. Forward and backward motions with arms at all times. Never let your arms stray to the side while skating.
  4. Start your stride from the center of your body. This is where all the magic happens, from the core.
  5. Push your skates to the side, not forward or backward.
  6. Extend your stride all the way until your leg is straight.
  7. After your extension, do not let your foot flip up. Pull it back as close to the ice as possible.
  8. Bring your skate back to the center of your body.
  9. Repeat!

 

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Start with your skate already laced.
  1. Place PowerSk8r over top of the skate.
  1. Line PowerSk8r up so it sits over the laces.
  1. Take velcro strap and fish it through the space between the blades.
  1. Pull the tail end of the velcro strap through the other side of the PowerSk8r.
  1. Secure the velcro strap to itself.
  1. Take the bungee cord attached to the side of the PowerSk8r and pull it around the heel of the skate.
  1. Attach the hook to the other side of the PowerSk8r.
  1. Now the PowerSk8r skate weights should be secured and ready to go.
