Ashley was amazing to have on the ice this past summer with my spring AAA U15 hockey team. Her professionalism and technique for power skating is incredible. She is knowledgeable, reliable and pays attention to detail. All of my players benefited and progressed week by week. All the players really enjoyed having her teaching and wanted more every week. They all learned how important skating abilities are for hockey and Ashley was the right person to inject that mentality in all of my hockey players.
Thank you for all your help this summer. You made my job way more enjoyable and easier.

Her professionalism, commitment and genuine interests in her skaters’ development along with her strong and focused personality make her an excellent skating coach! Ashley is a strong motivator who takes interest, makes time, and creates positive differences in all aspects of her skaters’ lives. We are very fortunate to have her, pleased with her mentoring style, and highly recommend her as an effective coach.
Ashley is outstanding with children! She has taught my son excellent technique. She breaks it down in such a way that is understandable for young skaters. My son loves his skill sessions with Ashley!
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.
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 had a great rapport with our players. With her help our team improved both our forward and backwards skating, increasing our speed and power. The results were easy to see in our games and our end of season time trials were on average 2 seconds faster than the start of the year. She also does a great job of working with our players on focus and concentration during the off ice JOGA sessions. I would highly recommend Ashley.

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.
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.
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
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!
