Technical Power Skating Instruction with Cindy Bower and Peggy Ward


At Cindy Bower and Peggy Ward Power Skating, it's our mission to teach our players how to move with the most efficiency on the ice but the least amount of effort.

Controlled balance is key. Concentration is placed on:

  • acceleration
  • body controlled edging (inside & outside)
  • stride development
  • pivoting
  • forward and backward crossovers
  • correcting our skaters' bad habits
  • drilling correct procedures repeatedly until they are second nature

  • In Memoriam


    With shock and sadness, Cindy and Peggy share the grief of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and extend their deepest sympathy to the families and friends whose loved ones perished in the Humboldt Broncos team tragedy.



    ...just like he was looking down from Heaven saying, 'Go Leafs Go'...

    Legendary Goaltender Johnny Bower
    1924 - 2017

    Cindy Bower would like to thank everyone for their many kind messages of sympathy and condolences after the recent passing of her beloved father.

    Subject: Jacks skating lessons
    "I forgot to mention this morning that Jack was signed this week for AAA Halton Hurricanes Minor Atom team for next season, after five tryout sessions. Once again there is not the slightest doubt in our minds that you have had a large role in his success in achieving his goals to play AAA hockey. We hope to be with you for a long time to come. Once again, thank you very much ..."

    "Hello again. Just thought I would let you know, Trev got his first hat trick thanks to your teaching skills. First playoff game and they won 4-1. Regards,"
