It is our goal to work with players of all ages and abilities on the key components of power skating to become a superior skater! In doing so, the positive result is that all other aspects of their chosen game will dramatically improve. Our “hands on” approach in a variety of “customized” programs will zero in on each individual for skill correction techniques that are tailored to their specific level.
Our “high quality” program focus in “mastery of edges and knowledge of correct technique” will include game scenarios and the use of pucks/rings which in turn will help these athletes “reach the NEXT level” in their careers! The lower the coach to skater ratio, the more enhanced and expedited the program becomes.
At Platinum Star Power Skating we are CERTIFIED, DEDICATED, EXPERIENCED, AND PROFESSIONAL TECHNICAL SPECIALISTS!
