After our team practice we had our daily power-skating session with Marc Power. Over these past four days
Marc has worked with us on our explosiveness and skating technique – both backwards and forwards. The girls
have found Marc’s sessions to be a lot of fun because he uses games to introduce skating themes such as low
knee bend and north/south arms.
Following our post-practice meal we were able to watch the Americans practice. Finally seeing our competition
brought some excitement and anticipation to the players. You can see the team is excited to compete and to
get Canada’s first Under-18 team off to a strong and successful start.
