    Feedback from a Parent...

    "This is Logan's second year in your power skating class and he really enjoys it, the time and effort you and your group has put in with Logan has really helped with his balance, agility, stride and edge work, he is always being challenged on the ice with your variety of drills ands he always come off the ice with a smile on his face, keep pushing the kids as they will only improve with hard work and intensity, thanks for all your time and effort with Logan. Looking forward to next year."
