It Is Our Mission to Help Everyone Reach His or Her Personal Best

Skating lessons are designed to maximize one’s potential with every session focusing on knee bend, proper posture, mobility, body awareness, edge stability, efficiency, range of motion in crossovers, leg extensions, mohawks, transitions, quick starts and stops and much more! Stickhandling and shooting sessions are high paced, developing quick reactions, eye hand coordination, passing, battling, shooting accuracy and development of good game decision making skills. All sessions and drills are designed for the development of each individual player’s needs and modified to challenge and improve one’s weaknesses.

    At Competitive Edge Skating
    we train you to become your best self

    We believe young people deserve the best chance of success in all areas of life. When kids learn to accept and work through challenges, they gain confidence and uncover their authentic selves. Forming this genuine connection helps them do better in sports, school, and relationships. It builds the foundation for a successful future and gives them the ability to make a positive impact on the world.

    Every young athlete is empowered to break through their self-imposed limitations to become highly skilled in sport and deeply connected to the world around them.

    • “My wife and I just reviewed all of the reports [our son] JP received today and we are just thrilled with the results of all his hard work. I had a conversation with a hockey coach and he asked me all about the [Competitive Edge] program. I found myself going on and on. In my heart of hearts I know this is the best program going for hockey, skating, nutrition, mental toughness and life after hockey. Keep it going, you are doing a great job for all of the kids in your program. We are lucky to have you!”

    • “[My son] Joe said to me: ‘The stuff Jennifer teaches can always be used in every game, like the drills using one leg, ’cause it makes you stronger. You can’t always use stuff other camps teach you in every game.’ A great viewpoint from such a young man! Kudos to you Jennifer!”

    • “Thank you for such a great summer power skating class! I had a lot of fun working with you and improving. Because of you, I made a hockey team just because of my edge work. This year has been such a wonderful experience for me and I look forward to doing it again next year!”
