Who do you think has the best winter skills??
Dynamic. No close second. Your kid may find it not fun, but he will learn to skate.
Also had good experience with Pro Ambitions Sunday morning NHL Prep. Good, solid fundamentals.
what about for bantam level kids? Heard Dynamic HS sessions are good but the peewee/bantam one is more for "lower level" bantams?
Sunday afternoon, walk on skills with MacAdams in Lawrence.
He is tough, and he works the kids hard, but for the most part it is fun. The drills generally have a pay off that keeps kids engaged.
If your kid is serious and wants to work at skills these are great.
He can handle kids at various ages and levels, kids end up in 3 or 4 groups depending on skill level.
It is a good take. We always go if there is no game on Sunday and frequently my bantam-aged son will want to go even if he did have a game.
anything worthwhile on the south shore?
This is the real deal. All high end kids, all skating (Edge work & Stride).
How could this "Elite Skills" be any good. They have not even had one session yet. And the website is a poetry site.C'mon man!
Winter skills should be taught by your kids coach you dummies. If your kids coach can't teach him how to skate, shoot, and basically play the game. Then you screwed up with your selection of team/coach. All those hours of ass kissing on the phone in January, February and March. Oh boy
Private Lessons from an experienced figure skating coach are a great choice!! My son is usually the best skater on the ice! This complements his team practices and shooting/stick handling in the driveway!! Some rinks have figure skaters trained to work with hockey players. Check it out.
why in the world would you want a figure skater teaching your kid how to skate? Completely different skill set involved here. If you want your kid to dipsy doodle around the ice then BAM! get his head taken off as a bantam sure go for the figure skater instructor. I would stay with a former hockey player as an instructor, arms swinging, 3 quick steps for acceleration etc. Figure skating instructor, lmao!
Have not seen a figure skating instructor receive credit for a player being able to run over another player while carrying the puck up ice. Sure, maybe he was able to catch an edge and pivot around Chara ONCE during a game, and he feels like it is the lessons he learned with a figure skating instructor for teaching him how to pivot. But if the player was any good, he was pivoting around bigger players as a junior player before he learned it from a figure skater. Edgework, smedgework...I'll still go with a former pro player as an instructor.
Brian Boyle? Hal Gill clone? Yea he is a real mover and shaker at the NHL level, smh. Any other names you want to throw at me, sunshine kid?
Let me guess, you're the same guy with the big, fat, slow kid who is going to dominate the game once he gets to the checking level. Ooof. Some of the better players in the game actually started with figure skating coaches and many of ex-NHL'ers start their kids with figure skating. Edge work is the difference between being a good skater and a very good / great skater. If you don't know the difference then your kid is destined to top-out at 'good.' And in today's game 'good' isn't good enough.
Those 2 ( J Lo and KH) ran PV into the ground. Now they start their own show and think it will work. NOT!!!!!
Lovell Hockey has walk on skills tonight in East Boston at 7.
Dynamic sets the bar. Others just try and catch up. #wantthebestgotothebest
