KURT NICHOLS POWER SKATING

About Us

Scroll and explore to learn how our curriculum can give you the edge you’ve been looking for.

At Kurt Nichols Power Skating, our adaptive curriculum uses pyramid based skill progression, which reinforces and repeats as we learn. Basic skills and fundamentals create a baseline for our skaters.

Our one-of-a-kind drills build on that while teaching you to apply your skills in game. This creates an advanced efficient technique that gives our students more power AND more endurance. We then repeat and reinforce with similar drills until all skills are mastered and it is second nature.

Cap it all off with our unique high level maneuvers for elite skaters and the KNPS program is second to none in creating the best hockey skaters.

Players will work toward mastering all skills on the KNPS Teaching Wheel.

Meet Kurt Nichols.

 

Raised in a family of skaters, Kurt got his start on the ice from figure skating, but also found joy in playing hockey throughout high school and early college. After graduating from Clarkson University and moving to New York City, Kurt soon discovered he had a talent for sharing that joy and love of skating with others.

Over the course of his thirteen years as a coach, Kurt has developed a unique curriculum that combines the fluidity and efficiency of figure skating with the aggression and power of hockey. His firm but intense coaching style draws from a deep well of knowledge and experience and tailors each lesson to his individual players needs.

Kurt has been the head power skating coach for a variety of successful teams including the NYC Cyclones, North Park Hockey, Central Park Hawks and more. Additionally, he’s coached individual players on high-performing teams like the New Jersey Avalanche and Connecticut Rough Riders.
