Effortless and intuitive
See some recent comments from customers of Ashley Holmes.
Ashley is an amazing, motivating, talented and knowledgeable coach. She’s fabulous with our twin 9 year old girls, pushing them to try their hardest and always ready with a tip or trick that they can internalize and make their own. We’ve seen such an improvement in both of our girls’ edge work and speed, and they’re always super sweaty after their sessions, and still ask to back the following week, huge win!
Ashley is a top-level skating coach. Ashley has been working with my son and his hockey friends for the last year and we can see their improvement in edgework, agility and speed. She is great with kids of all ages, really understanding how to teach and motivate them. Every practice is tailored to challenge the specific group and ensure the most benefit. She is able to spend time with each child while running a high energy, positive practice. My son loves attending her sessions and we highly recommend Ashley Holmes for power skating.
Yes, I would recommend Ashley in a heartbeat! She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from her professional skating years that will help any inspiring hockey player. Her edgework sessions challenge players young and old. Ashley’s small groups allow her to build a rapport with the kids and time to correct, a much-needed task.
Ashley’s programs are always very well organized. Skaters are always moving and receive constant feedback throughout the session. My children are at different skating levels and Ashley is always able to adjust the drills to challenge each individual skater.
Ashley is an incredibly talented coach. She is both skilled instructor, and caring mentor. She cares about athlete development and injury prevention in equal measure. My daughter wouldn’t choose to train with anyone else.
Ashley Holmes Power Skating has been by far one of the best decisions we made to improve the skating and overall speed of our group. Our players look forward to every ice session we have. Within these past few months, we started to see a significant improvement. One of our parents even dubbed the weekly morning sessions “Need For Speed” since our group has seen that their speed and acceleration increase.
If you want to improve your skating and speed we highly recommend Ashley Holmes Power Skating
My daughter simply loves skating with Ashley. She teaches each child as an individual, tailoring their skating education to the way they learn, without compromising the correct technique. Her attitude and drive for continuous improvement definitely passes down to her skaters. Can’t recommend her enough.
My son has been working with Ashley for three years and his edges, speed and overall mechanics have improved immensely.
Ashley’s attention to detail, positive feedback and commitment to making him the best he can be has translated in his development.
The lessons and dedication my son has learnt from Ashley has shown with his transition from A to AAA this year.
Thanks for all your help!
Ashley is a dedicated professional instructor who has the ability to make each player reach their potential. The edge work and balance techniques Ashley teaches makes players stronger on their skates and provides them the confidence to be agile and strong on the puck.
Over the past year, Ashley’s skating sessions has taught our 10-year-old son proper skating technique and has made him into a confident skater on the ice. His uncertainty with his edge work at the beginning was noticeable but after just a few sessions with Ashley his edge work improved tremendously. Throughout the year, he enjoyed working with Ashley to improve his skating.
