How We Can Help

Jacki’s Slideboard Skating Program

Everything you need to know to improve your skating off the ice – with NHL skating coach Jacki Munzel. Powered by former NHL player Lubos Bartecko & biomechanics specialist Dr. Juraj Bezak.

Do you need to improve your skating technique and speed, but don’t have enough on-ice lessons? This program has you covered! Every player needs to improve their skating technique. Whether pro or youth, you must be fast and efficient on your skates. The problem is players don’t get enough ice time to master skating technique. On-ice team sessions don’t offer adequate emphasis on skating, so it is hard to be at least above average skater.

This leaves you only with very few options. One of them is to hire a private skating coach (which is very expensive).

Or follow our program, which will teach you step-by-step every tiny detail of how to position your hips, legs, and upper body to move on your skates fast without fatigue.

You can significantly improve your stride power and skating efficiency with as little as 10 – 15 minutes of daily slideboard skating. No more skating on stiff straight legs, no more wasting energy…just smooth, powerful strides!
