Private Lessons 

With every Twin City Hockey Skating School Power registration, skaters will receive one free "Open Session" per season. This extra ice time will give skaters an opportunity to tap into our private lessons with TCHSS coaches. It is important to note that private lessons have been very helpful with the development of skills for hockey/ringette players. The Kitchener Waterloo Skating club offers many time slots for Slice of Ice throughout the week. Please contact   for more details about private lessons, or Open Sessions.


CanPowerSkate is an action-packed, high energy instructional power skating program that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance, and is geared toward hockey and ringette skaters. Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. CanPowerSkate provides an alternative to figure skating, and is an excellent complement for those athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams. The unique skill award program provides incentives and motivation for skaters to continue to achieve.

For safety reasons, participants must wear full hockey/ringette equipment that is CSA approved. The coach to skater ratio is 1:8.
