Hey Skaters!

This is obviously a difficult time for us all as we try to keep ourselves moving and in shape but without the luxury (sob!) of ice.  I know lots of you are doing stuff with your own coaches but not all coaches are able to offer this, so I’ve pulled together a list of resources for you to access from home that can help keep you learning and developing in as many ways as possible.  This is by no means exhaustive and if you have any that you know about that aren’t on the list below then comment or drop us a message and we’ll add them!  I’d love to hear from you!
