Do you want to become a faster, more efficient skater? Do you want to play the game with more confidence? Do you want to have a guaranteed leg up on the competition?
Our treadmill is the ultimate power skating tool, which improves strength and conditioning in performance training. Coaches are active during sessions to ensure proper skating biomechanics. This will help the skater improve their overall skating mechanics with immediate verbal and visual feedback.
GOOD SKATERS GET GOOD OPPORTUNITIES
The majority of all Youth Organizations from Rec to AAA don't spend enough time teaching skating. Coaches' plans include little or no time working on the most important part of the game! SKATING ...... If it's the most important part, why isn't it focused on? Primarily because of the lack of knowledge and ability to teach skating progressions.
The vast majority of Scouts and high-level coaches / trainers agree that the following are the things they look at in a hockey player in this order:
2. Compete Level / Consistency of Effort
3. Hockey IQ
4. Character / Body Language
5. Skill / Shooting
It's these opportunities that increase the odds of success. What players do with those opportunities - their work ethic, character, coachability, hockey IQ, skill development etc. - ultimately will determine how far they go!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a treadmill session and the skating academy?
Impact has developed its own curriculum that stands above the rest. We use this to teach and develop players to become better skaters. Treadmill sessions encompass the most important elements from the curriculum and used as a workout. The academy takes it a step further on more consistent time frame. Skaters are not losing out on anything if they do no do the academy.
What is the age requirement?
Skaters must be at least 8 years old with a maturity to understand the curriculum, work hard, and be safe on the treadmill.
How long does the treadmill typically last? How much skating time is my skater actually getting?
The session time is an hour long. We would like skaters to get there 5 minutes before to get their skates on. In terms of time actually skating, that can be anywhere between 15-25 minutes. In hockey, there is a lot of rest between shifts and same goes for the treadmill. This gives coaches the ability to go over things they see as well. Typically coaches will end the treadmill portion 5 minutes prior to allow the skaters to get skates off and stretch.
What if I book a session, but need to cancel?
That is no problem at all, you can cancel and reschedule the session to the next session opening that fits your needs. We ask when you cancel to notify us, that way we can make sure it is done properly in the system. If you need to do it outside a normal session time, will do our best to accommodate you.
What safety measures are there to keep my skater from getting hurt?
The treadmill is an intense machine. We have rules in place that skaters must follow to ensure the safety of themselves and others. If they do not, they will not be allowed to use it. For their individual safety, all skaters are required to wear a harness that the coach will properly fit them in, and then attached to the conveyer system of the treadmill. This way if they happen to fall, they are not flung back and fall onto the moving treadmill.
