Hockey Edge and Balance Program

New Program* Edge and Balance – This program is specifically designed by Paul Matheson to build a foundation of balance and edge awareness that is a key first step in the development of players at this particular age and level. Players will be introduced to concepts such as forward and backwards inside and outside edges through exercises that are based around detailed repetition. Each player will receive five weeks of instruction with two professional skating instructors from Mariposa School of Skating that specialize in working with athletes at this age and level. Power Skating with Scott Grover- Explosive acceleration, proper use of edges, improved lateral movement, increased balance, precise stopping, body checking, puck control and play making drills.

Over the past 2 years our hockey team has participated in Mariposa’s skating program as part of our team development. I have observed immediate and long term results from each of our players edges, agility and Transitions. The results have been remarkable and as a coach I firmly believe in the skill of skating as critical foundation to any player. We will continue to invest our teams development money with Mariposa now and in the future. Mariposa’s staff is world class and nothing compares to the Team Edge and Balance Program!
