Training and Skating Programs

Speed Skater

Whatever your skating ability, I can design a personally tailored skating program to fit your needs. Each program begins with a free consultation evaluating your current training status, goals, and experience as well as your availability. Please contact us to schedule a consultation.


Individual Skating Coaching

Strength and technique are behind every great skater, and you need both to be one of the elite. I will assess your strength needs and if desired can develop a strength program for you, with dry-land technique work done to precision when ready. Then we hit the ice, bringing it all together to maximize your valuable ice time. These tried and true methods used by Olympic and World Champion speed skaters combined with a scientific training system has proven successful at the highest level. If you are ready to work, contact me. Together we can make you a top-end skater.

Skating Camps and Clinics

I hold various clinics and sessions throughout the year, based on demand and availability. A week-long, small elite skating clinic for Bantam and Midget players is already being planned for Summer 2016, as well as a developmental clinic for youth hockey players. Special single-day sessions are held throughout the year, and I am available for individual or regular coaching sessions with teams during the hockey season. If you would like more information on having me assist your team, or if you'd like to be notified when applications and registration becomes available for summer clinics or single-day sessions, please contact us.

Strength and Conditioning

As a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), I can provide not just skating coaching, but I develop a sport specific programs that includes resistance (weight) training, plyometrics and dry-land exercises. Programs can be designed based on training at-a-distance (via on-line software) or in-person sessions. Strength and conditioning can be used to supplement training with your own coach, or can be combined with my other coaching services.

Shannon's training program has made a huge difference in my skating. After only a few months, I'm able to hold the ice better and skate with more control. Having a program geared to skating makes so much sense. This way, my time spent in the gym isnt' just about conditioning, it's about skating.
