Training Methods

To reach the highest level, you need to train like a pro. With a focus on technique in a progressively difficult and demanding environment, you will gain the skating skills and discipline to make you competitive at the top level of the sport. 

As both a former elite speed skater and a certified strength and conditioning specialist (C.S.C.S.), Shannon understands the best way to build power and speed. It’s not rocket science, but it is science. She will break down your stride and can find areas to improve in even the best, most experienced players.

Every drill, every exercise, is done with the optimal skating technique to build strength and speed using the proper positioning and edges, with a focus on physics, biomechanics and neuromuscular development.  Sessions include hockey relevant drills and will include shooting, passing, and carrying the puck as technique is perfected to simulate skating in a hockey environment.

I work with teams and programs both in the Denver Metro area, as well as national and international teams.  I also have a small number of elite clients, aged Midget and older, and serve as a personal performance coach.  While I am currently not taking any new individual clients, please contact me for an initial consultation and to be placed on my wait list.

“Shannon’s coaching has helped improve my skating in countless ways. Since skating with Shannon I’ve become a much more explosive skater and I’ve also learned how to properly gain speed using crossovers. Shannon has also helped me develop a much more efficient stride which leads to better stamina in games.”
