“Our players have seen major improvements in many areas including edges, power and balance.  We will definitely be using Wave in the Future again for both our current players and prospects.”

“I have been given the opportunity to work with Jarret Reid for almost 11 years now. After 11 years I look back and i see all the accomplishments I've made and understand exactly why I was able to accomplish my goals, thanks to Jarret and his power-skating team! A session with Coach Jarret goes through different skating techniques and then getting to incorporate pucks. Jarret designs his programs so that every athlete grows in skating ability, puck handling skills, and learning both at the same time. Coach Jarret's small class sizes enables a great learning environment. Often athletes forget about how important skating techniques are. I would not of accomplished half of my dreams without Coach Jarret's expertise in the field of Hockey!"

"Since working with Jarret and the HP team I have noticed a huge improvement in foot speed, balance and stride length. His approach to skating and attention to detail separates him from the pack. I am more confident in my overall skating ability and strongly believe this program has prepared me for the NHL."

“Our team has participated in the HP power skating program directed by Jarret Reid for the past 5 seasons. Jarret and his instructors have been instrumental in developing our players skating ability during this time. His in-depth technical knowledge, attention to detail, and constructive, supportive instructional approach with the players differentiates the HP program from other alternatives. Jarret and his instructors are fully invested in the improvement of their students and the results of the training approach are evident."

“The gang at HP Power Skating have been instrumental in the development of all the teams that I have coached.  Their focus on player development and the time they take to ensure the kids are learning the right technique is what makes them stand out from the pack.  You can tell that Jarret and his team love what they do which is why I keep bringing my players back year after year.”

“Jarret was the first formal skating instructor that my son Shane used with any regularity to help shape his technique as a hockey player.  Jarret to this day has always been able to easily offer Shane technical instruction with continuous feedback for improvement while being sure he had fun at the same time.”

“My son and his friends have been taking semi-private lessons and attend weekly power skating sessions off and on for the past 4 years with Jarret Reid.  Jarret’s demeanor, coaching skills and true passion for the boys is what keeps us coming back.  He places a heavy emphasis on proper skating techniques, and his drills are designed to help the boys apply those techniques in game-like situations.  They have become better skaters and all-around hockey players as a result.  As a parent, I trust Jarret with the boys and they are always excited when we tell them they will be skating with Coach Reid.  They come off the ice with big smiles on their faces.”

“Thank you Jarret for being such a great coach. You always help me understand why we do certain drills, and walk through them slowly so I can really think about what you are teaching me. You have really helped me lengthen my stride and helped me with stride recovery. You coach with clarity, respect, and experience."
