Pro Edge Privates are private lessons that focus on the skills of skating. Following the philosophy of skating instructor Diane Ness, the skater will learn the basic mechanics of skating and progress to advanced mechanics. We are one of the few hockey skating programs in the metro area that offers 1 on 1 private instruction. It is our belief that skating skills must be broken down into parts in order to learn. No one can learn a new skill or skating maneuver simply by “moving the feet faster” or just by overspeed training. It's too much for the brain and body to accommodate. Once the skater understands the proper technique, he / she can practice those skills at game speed, with and without the puck, under game situations.
