News: Hamilton Ringette Teams up with The Hockey Tutor Dave Tait
Posted by Webmaster, Last Updated: Mon Sep 25, 2017

Hamilton Ringette is excited to announce our partnership with The Hockey Tutor, Dave Tait of THT Hockey. Dave has a background as a Physical Education Specialist Teacher as well as a stunning list of credentials in the Hockey and skating world. We are pleased to announce that Dave and his team will be coaching our Learn to skate program this season. Learn to skate is a program for children aged 4-8 years of age who want to learn how to skate or want to improve their current skating skills.

Dave and his team will also be coaching our Power Skating sessions on Thursday evenings. Hamilton ringette is excited to see the programing Dave will be offering at the Power Skating Session. Expect his program to be a fun, fast paced program with lots of new drills and skills to be worked on. We stress that this session is a power skating program and is not for those players who are just learning to skate.

“First a little about my philosophy and what I do. I work with skaters from beginners to AAA players, junior to the NHL. I believe wholeheartedly that skating in the basic building block for all skills and success at all levels. I have used my years of experience as a Kinesiology major, AAA and Junior hockey coach, development instructor and researcher to take my learning and create a proven skating program.”

THT provides a safe, fun, yet highly challenging learning environment for athletes of all levels; house league to AAA, junior to pro. Our technical instruction is scientifically researched and proven so we guarantee results.

THT Instructors teach, demonstrate and model the skill, have the athlete perform the skill, and then provide specific feedback for improvement. Through repetition, the player will develop accurate and correct muscle memory.

The HRA Equipment Lending program has been made available thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation. It is intended for Learn to Skate players and first year players (subject to availability). Taking care of the equipment while you are in possession of it and returning it in good clean condition will ensure continued success of this program.

Program details: The basic fee for use of the equipment per year is $25. All participants will be required to sign a promissory contract and place a $250 deposit cheque (postdated to March 25, 2018), payable to Hamilton Ringette, upon taking possession of the equipment. Upon return of the equipment in good clean condition by March 25, 2018, HRA will return or destroy your cheque. If the equipment is not returned, or returned damaged, HRA will cash the cheque and deduct the cost of any damaged or missing equipment and rebate the difference.
