4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Laura Stamm knows her craft Oct. 15 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book! Laura Stamm knows her craft. The book is a little long (that's just me..) but covers EVERY detail and leaves nothing untouched with regards to skating. At 53 years old (myself) playing hockey since 7, and currently coaching Midget level hockey, I learned a lot more from reading this book that I was not aware of. Answered a lot of my questions. :)

By D. Knelsen - Published on
Laura Stamm's power skating instruction is incredibly useful for all skill levels. This book is a gold mine of practical tools one can use to improve their own stride or to teach skating more effectively. I highly recommend Laura's work to anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of skating or to fix bad skating habits they've had for 15 years. An excellent resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the meat to the meal known as hockey skating March 14 2015
By Maine Marine - Published on
Great knowledge for power skating training. When I trained College Development [Mite, squirt, pee wee, midget] I had figure skating coaches train the children up to 'badge' level 8. This training gave them all the skills needed to excel at edge work. This book took those skills to the highest level of ability for each student. I highly recommend this book to Hockey Coaches, players and students of the game. Learn the skills to go from playing hockey to being a hockey player!
