Ratings and Reviews
Excellent add-on to skating lessons
This is a great app with skills needed through all levels of skating. I use it as a supplement to lessons, and a way to watch what's required to prepare for drills and skills. I recommend it to everyone who asks me for tips on skating.
As a figure skating coach who has been given a few hockey students this is very helpful.
I would love to see written descriptions of each move with hints on focus (power, edge quality, etc) to go with the video.
In Level 1 it states "show plow stop", which I am sure could be fixed to "snow plow stop" with the next upgrade.
Really good app
These apps are great. Chock full of useful information and video samples. Easy to use if you're a coach or student. They also make great reference for the casual skater. Cant wait to see what comes next.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
