South Wood County Recreation Center is pleased to announce the upcoming P.O.W.E.R. SKATING HOCKEY CLINIC.   The schedule will include both on and off ice sessions for youth hockey players of all ages.  The on ice focus will consist of deep edge control, quick transitions, agility and balance drills as well as many other skating movements that are applicable to the game of hockey.  The off-ice portion will demonstrate dynamic warm-ups and provide examples of off-ice training drills that will compliment and improve a player’s on ice performance.

The instructor for these sessions is Marcie Kierpiec who is a Level 4 coach through USA Hockey with 31 years of coaching experience.  Marcie has vast experience working with hockey players of all ages within the state of Michigan and northern Wisconsin.  She is the lead skating instructor for the Michigan High School Hockey Excellence Program and the 14U HoneyBaked AAA team in Farmington Hills, MI.  In addition, she is also the off-ice strength coach for this team.  Marcie recently completed her degree in Exercise Science with a focus on Strength and Conditioning which included an internship last fall with USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program in Plymouth, MI.  While doing her internship, she worked with both the 18U and 17U teams during their off-ice training sessions, as well as, on ice with the 17U team by assisting their regular power skating instructor.
