Designed for all levels of skaters – from beginners learning fundamentals to professional athletes – “The Blade” promotes stride efficiency, endurance, and development. Treadmill skating is a personal skating lesson with a PowerTech professional instructor who will analyze the players’ skating technique, stride efficiency, upper body movement and control. Players will skate in front of a full size mirror and will receive instant feedback from their instructor helping to correct any inconsistencies in their form.

The blade is available to be booked for individual, small groups or team sessions.

Rapid Shot Shooting System

PowerTech Rapid Shot Shooting System will improve your shooting technique whether you’re a beginner or an elite hockey player.

Through the use of infrared sensors, the Rapid Shot Shooting Lane will deliver passes at a steady rate and will light up corners of the net as alternating targets. Upon contact, your reaction time, puck speed and accuracy are measured and immediately displayed on a monitor. The Rapid Shot is the most effective and efficient hockey shooting system in the world today, and is capable of passing 800 pucks per hour. It is the first scientifically based systematic shooting system that provides immediate feedback. It is an exceptional learning tool that is self-motivating which will ultimately result in a more efficient and prolific goal scorer. Shooting lane operates on a swipe card basis. Players purchase time and use the time as they wish.
