Skating is the foundation of playing hockey. It takes proper skating mechanics, explosive speed, quickness and balance to consistently outmaneuver your opponents and become a top player. This is why hundreds of past and present professional hockey players from Brett Hull to Shawn Horcoff have trained at Athletic Republic. A proud performance sports training partner with both USA Hockey and Hockey East, the Athletic Republic Hockey Training Program is an innovative, scientifically proven 6 – 8 week program that focuses on power, critical movement skills for every skill level and position, skating technique and efficiency for on-ice results.
