After 15 years of competitive figure skating Ashlea has spent the last seven years developing this passion.
“Skating is so critical in today’s game'” Ashlea says. “Hockey now moves at a faster pace than ever. With the increased speed of the game players need more power and more agility. There are more technical elements. It’s the use of edges. It’s how we control our body on the ice.”
“To be able to help them, I have to figure each player out,” Ashlea says. “It’s the best feeling to be part of someone’s dream. When you see how hard they work. To help them get better. It’s why I come to the rink everyday.”
