is what you're capable of doing
determines what you do
determines how well you do it"

Skating is the fundamental skill that all other skills in hockey are based off of. Stride Hockey was created by head instructor Lino Di Lella to help players develop proper stride mechanics and develop them into more efficient and powerful skaters.
The importance of learning proper technique is vital in skill development, and muscle memory. This is the reason why Stride Hockey breaks down skills and teaches in progression to maximize a players potential.
As players progress so does the level of intensity and training. Our program is designed to push players regardless of age and skill level to work outside their comfort zone to develop more refined skills, confidence in their abilities and to continue to grow as a player.
Through personalized, positive and motivating teaching techniques Stride Hockey is able to get the best out of their athletes.
See for yourself the difference Stride Hockey can make!
"Nicholas' stride mechanics have drastically improved since he's been training with Lino. Under Lino's direction Nicholas has garnered explosiveness and lengthening of stride. I would highly recommend Lino to anyone looking to improve their skills!"

"As a team we wouldn't be where we are today if it weren't for lino's techniques and energy when it comes to power skating and skills. one thing that differentiates stride hockey is that they care about every athlete and team they work with and are committed to helping them all improve."
