WELCOME TO SKATE WITH JEN! Supporter of Mastodon Ice Arena
Strong Edges create balance, body awareness, and promote good technique in skating which prevents injury.
Every skater at any age should have access to the backbone of the sport. Without the knowledge of the edges behind the elements, skating becomes hard and it doesn't have to be. I love innovating and finding a more efficient way to create powerful skating - for Figure skating, or Hockey!
Edges are critical to all types of skating. Without good edges skaters tend to let their ankles lean in (or out) which can cause permanent damage. I stress the importance of edges and make sure both inside and outside edges get equal treatment and drills. Edges are the key to success in tight turns and transitions.
Skating skills are the foundation to great Hockey - Always.
