Power Skating / Dryland Practices
SCRA works to establish contracts with service providers for powerskating sessions, and may also contract with local venues to use their gyms for dryland practices. The SCRA scheduler will assign these development sessions into each team’s schedule in Sportzsoft.
- Coaches are encouraged to attend these sessions to help on the ice and learn skills to take back to your own practices. Coaches should be incorporating powerskating skills into every practice plan.
- Coaches can contact the service provider 1-2 days prior to your scheduled session to advise of any specific skills you would like the athletes to work on.
- FT Goalies are encouraged to attend the powerskating sessions with their team. Skating is a critical skill for every player.
- Sample drills for dryland practices are available below
- NOTE — SCRA does not have gym contracts for the 2021/22 season. Teams are welcome to pursue their own dryland preferences using their team funds.
