Steel Power Sessions Starting Now

In Steel Power, all of the basic hockey skating fundamentals are emphasized, solidified and intensified as the lessons progress into high-level skills, which incorporate agility, lateral movement, speed, acceleration, reaction time and maneuverability.

Strength and conditioning drills that emphasize leg and core strength, as well as flexibility, will challenge your discipline and competitiveness. You'll be made more aware of your strengths, weaknesses and personal progress. Ultimately, Steel Power will help you to understand and utilize better skating techniques for today's game.

Steel Power is directed my Marianne Watkins, Power Skating Director of the RMU Island Sports Center. One of the most sought after power skating coaches in hockey, Marianne has worked with many of the game's top players, including Chris Pronger, Tie Domi, Jamie Langenbrunner, Darren McCarty, Mike Ricci, Cory Stillman and Jason Arnott. She is currently involved in player development for the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets and Anaheim Ducks, working with players assigned to their AHL affiliate teams.
