Stay Ahead Of The Game

Victor Kraatz is a hockey-specific skating instructor in North Vancouver, British Columbia. He is level 3 certified by the Canadian National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP 3) a Skate Canada certified CanPowerSkate instructor and also Hockey Canada registered coach. From private lessons to group classes, Victor teaches advanced stride mechanics with a focus on technique and body composition. Victor’s classes are taught with specific game situations in mind; this means that the movements and skills taught are directly transferable to in-game scenarios.

“Every hockey player is different - not only their skating style, but their motivations and goals. I refine each player’s stride based on their own unique tendencies on and off the ice. Watching players build their base of knowledge while developing consistancy of skill is my work’s greatest reward.”
