We are thrilled to be adding another exciting element to our dynamic CrossIce team! Effective June 2020, we would like to officially announce the hiring of Power Skating Coach REANNA JORDAN, from Ponoka, Alberta. Power Skating has been one aspect that we have been looking to add to for quite some time, due to client demand and the simple fact of rounding out our team. We have found the perfect fit for that role in Reanna, with her being local, as well as the experience and knowledge she has to offer.
After playing for the Red Deer Midget AAA Female Chiefs, Reanna advanced to Mount Royal University to play 4 seasons of CIS University hockey, and 1 year of U-Sport. While there, she obtained her bachelor of education degree, and now teaches Grade 1 in Ponoka. After her playing career, she pursued her passion of teaching power skating to young players, and began her certifications. Recently, she received her Level-3 skating certification. Over the duration of the last 3 years, she has been teaching power skating to young players, locally in Lacombe and area. By adding Reanna to our well-established brand, we feel as though there will be a mutual benefit for both to grow and expand!
“The power skating program that I plan to implement with CrossIce is geared towards young athletes who have aspirations to become stronger, faster, and more confident skaters.
Players will receive instruction that is key to enhancing their skating proficiency by developing muscle memory through proper repetition and game performance drills. By doing so, athletes will have success transferring these skills and abilities in to their respective games. The key components that athletes will focus on include length of stride, quick recovery, low recovery, depth, and arm movement. Edge work will be prioritized when necessary for players to gain confidence and trust their skating ability.
Feedback will be immediate, and focus on the growth of the individual player. Athletes will have the opportunity to improve their skating ability through our innovative framework and dedicated instruction.”
REANNA will begin her work during our camps this summer, followed by power skating work with our minor hockey association clients this upcoming season. She will then work towards also offering private skating work with individual clients!
