On Ice Power Skating
For Hockey Players!

St. Joseph, June 28 - 30, 2024 Core Techniques

Core Techniques Clinic

This is our primary clinic that we’ve been running for over 50 years. Players will focus on proper technique and a strong foundation including knee bend, a full-length stride, and a full return. We start with a focus on skating slowly and correctly, then slowly, correctly, and powerfully. This can take many years to learn and master. All hockey players, regardless of skill level, need a solid foundation on skating technique, balance, and explosiveness, all of which are covered in the Core clinics.

This clinic is 6 hours on ice and covers the skills up to the Intermediate AA level skills test.
*Note: This is not a learn-to-skate program.

Recommended for all skaters 7-10; skaters ages 11+ who want to improve their core skating skills or are new to Laura Stamm Power Skating; skaters up to age 13 playing house-level hockey; and adult novice league skaters.


  • Age 7+
  • Players should have one or more years of hockey experience under their belt.
  • Be able to skate backward, perform forward crossovers in one direction, and hockey stops on one side.


  • Develop good skating habits such as a deep knee bend, a full-length stride, and powerful pushes.
  • Gain a strong foundation to build on and progress into more advanced skills.

*Note: Players cannot become great skaters in just a few days, they need to practice and master each technique throughout the year. Our clinics are designed to provide knowledge and drills to use outside of the clinics.
