    What Levi says
    about Power Plus...

    "Tina's teaching has really helped improve my stride, to get the most power out of it and to use explosive speed. Power Plus increases a skater's overall strength. It has improved my agility with starts and stops. I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to improve their skating skills."

    Feedback from a Parent...

    "Thank you for the work you and your team put in over the week. The power skating lessons were great. They were challenging for Nicholas and yet fun. I know it will help him develop into a stronger skater and a more rounded hockey player. I look forward to using your services again over the next couple of years. Next year hopefully Nicholas's younger brother James will be ready to take part as well."

    Thanks again Tina,

    "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."

    Another Player...

    I would like to thank you for the time and effort you put into running the skating classes. I am really happy to have participated and feel I have really benefited from your teaching. In particular, the power plus skating sessions have improved my edges and stride, which has made me a better skater. Thank you.

    More Feedback...

    Justin has attended Tina's power skating the past 2 years. Not only has his skating improved significantly, so has his confidence. Tina is not only an excellent skater and instructor, she possesses amazing communication skills. She is able to give feedback and encouragement that is positive and proactive. We feel very fortunate to have Tina teach our son to be a better skater. I would recommend Tina to anyone as her patience with the players is a testament to her committment in helping each individual in their personal goals. We hope Tina returns to Kamloops on a regular basis as her expertise is a valuable asset to our community and kids. Thanks so much.

    Justin Bartella and Family
