Pro Agility Test
The pro agility assessment is the same assessment used by Hockey Canada, where an athlete is required to do multiple forwards to backwards (and backwards to forwards) transitions while maintaining puck control during a timed event.
The athlete will be provided a CD with the full skating mechanics assessment including body positions, joint angles, and time to complete the skills. The assessment will highlight strengths and weaknesses in the athletes skating stride as well as help to provide cues for technique correction. The athlete will also be scheduled to come in for a one on one meeting to go through the assessment with our skating mechanics expert.
Improved skating mechanics and efficiency
Improved body awareness
Improved method of measuring and tracking progress
Improved method for athlete comparison (to other athletes or themselves at a later date)
The full assessment cost is $175.00 plus tax which includes the on ice filming session, CD, and player meeting. The session has been scheduled forSaturday August 6that 10:00 AM at the Argyll Arena and will be limited to 8 athletes. The deadline to register for the skating mechanics assessment isSaturday July 30th. For more information, please visit my website at and click on the sample project located on the homepage.
