Young NHLs Learn to Skate

We all sat and listened while Hockey Canada announced its men’s team for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games.  There was a lot of speculation and about which players were chosen and why.  We certainly wish the team well.
    The journey these hockey players have taken is long and arduous. Besides many long hours practicing and building their career as hockey players; parents, coaches, drivers, and fans have contributed greatly to their success.  
    If we look back at these professional hockey players we realize that “Experience was once a beginner”.  That is what we have to realize as parents of sons and daughters anxious to strap on skates and join the local team.  Providing the young player with skates and equipment is certainly not enough.  
    The New Edge Regional Skating Club has the experience to provide a solid skating foundation for your prospective NHL’ers.  It has been proven in other communities that those hockey players with a Learn-to-Skate or Can-Skate background shine on the ice over all others as they learn to skate properly right from the beginning.    
    Skating coaches in Millet have the experience headed by Gina Shantz who has over 23 years coaching experience in this area.  She also has her Certification to coach Can-Power which is under the authority of Skate Canada.  One hockey Grandfather in Millet is totally impressed with his grandson’s development in 10 short weeks.  He is continuing with the program for a few more years because he wants his grandson to have every advantage on the ice. 
    It is not too late to enrol your young skater for this next 10 week session.  If you require more information you can reach them by email at or come down to the arena Mondays and Thursdays at 4:45 p.m. to see the program and to talk to the parents and executive members on hand. We have plenty of coaches and assistant coaches on hand to give your child that personal attention needed as they learn how to use the edges on their hockey skates.  The Millet Minor Hockey Association will also thank you.
