Power Skating 100

For the 2022-23 Hockey Season


Power Skating for Hockey Players

Developing a complete hockey skating foundation is a player’s greatest advantage. However, many players approach the game with an incomplete set of skating fundamentals.

At Power Skating 100 we train with a deep focus on hockey skating. Techniques covered include quick starts for getting up to speed fast. Edges for lateral movement. Transitions so you can move from forwards to backwards efficiently. And more.

About Coach Michelle

Coach Michelle Racimo has been on the ice for over 30 years and began coaching power skating and figure skating in 1994. Today, she uses her experience as a former United States figure skating competitor to instill advanced skating skills in hockey athletes.

Her focus is developing a solid skating skill foundation with emphasis on skating mechanics, explosive speed development, edge control and game time agility. She believes that muscle memory – achieved through a consistent and rigorous practice standard combined with skill-specific cross training – is the fast track to athletic success.

Michelle has earned a reputation for having a rare eye for skating mechanics and a deep analytical ability to dissect how hockey players move on the ice. She observes a player’s movement, identifies their priorities for development, and goes to work making strengths out of their weaknesses.

In 2017 she founded Power Skating 100, which quickly became an epicenter of power skating development. Her high intensity, full ice concept has proven to be a powerful boost to any hockey training program.
