Why Coach Hockey Players? - Issuu

Why Coach Hockey Players? - Issuu Hockey skating coaches are in high demand, and figure skating coaches have the skating background necessary to become effective hockey skating coaches. You can achieve success in ice hockey by taking what you know about on-ice movement and transferring that information into a means of helping hockey...


Nathan Chen crowned as World Champion. For the third time. 👑👑👑


Remembering our personal skating passion as coaches, is key to longevity in our profession...

As coaches, sometimes we forget to make time for ourselves. Do not give up on yourselves, your dreams, or your love of skating. Forget you are a coach for a moment, and just be the skater and SKATE.


It's only March, but this is officially our choice for 'Goal of the Year'

Thank you Gene Corbin!!! Definitely a problem solver!


Humans have always been looking for ways to conquer and play on ice......

Memorable Moments presented by Prevagen!



With coaching and instruction, comes lifelong friendships!!! This was my Jr Coach Desirae who I've worked with since she was a tiny tot. She was trained to help instruct my younger skaters and they absolutely loved her. Life has moved her into another state, but she is remembered and loved forever. (Fun note...when my skaters grew taller than I, they no longer had to call me 'COACH' Brandy...just my first name only, then)!


There is nothing like having the ENTIRE sheet of ice just to yourself....

02/03/2021've seen everything, right?


A perfect date night idea for when NM goes green and COVID restrictions lift.


Is this the Canadian version of Mary Poppins?


During this COVID MADNESS....Folk singer Joni Mitchell probably said it best when she sang, "I wish I had a river...I could skate away on", because some days feel like they need some fun and 'healthy' escapes.


Hockey time is way more fun and efficient with great skills mastered.


Every skater's dream backyard!


Hockey or first time skater??? No nasty, crazy, hard falls necessary. Consider some lesson time...for date night, group fun, or privately....please text or call for rates. (No public sessions available yet, due to Covid).


Even Bernie had a dream to drive the zamboni.....


Many people are SURPRISED to learn that figure skating coaches have helped to train many NHL teams in more efficient edge-work and power techniques. When your little or big tyke beginner or advanced, (male or female) is ready to reach their full potential consider a private lesson....I will update when public sessions have re-opened at our COVID restrictions lift.


Our rink's hockey program has been expanded. Ice surface has been groomed and is maintained beautifully. I will post when public sessions are allowed.

Our skating rink in Albuquerque is closed to PUBLIC sessions during the Covid Pandemic. If you are a past or present skater of mine, please call ME, (not the rink) to make an appointment for a private lesson, which is allowed during 'contract' ice time. If you are a potentially new skater, I will update this site when public sessions are allowed. (This pic was PRE-COVID).


The show MUST go on 🗣

SMOOTH!!!! Most people don't know that a figure skater helped to train the LA Kings hockey team (providing skills that are smooth and much more efficient). I ALSO teach hockey skills. It's a fun break from jumps and spins. Give me a call if you need to hone up YOUR skills!
