About the Actor

Internationally renowned power skating coach Laura Stamm has been coaching hockey players for 30 years and is considered the pioneer of modern power skating. The first woman ever to coach a major league professional hockey player, Stamm has shown the hockey world how important skating technique is to a player's success. She has worked with college and youth hockey players, U.S. Olympic team members, and professional players representing many National Hockey League (NHL) teams. Stamm has taught thousands of amateur and pro players--including many NHL stars--how to increase their speed, ability, and efficiency on the ice.

Stamm has taught the Los Angeles Kings, the New York Rangers, the New York Islanders, and the New Jersey Devils. Prestigious teams around the world have employed her Power Skating System.

A champion athlete in ice dancing and tennis, Stamm studied physiology at Cornell University and taught high school biology and physics. In 1971 she became a power skating coach at a summer hockey school directed by then-NHL stars Rod Gilbert and Brad Park. She now conducts power skating clinics throughout the United States and Canada for players of all ages and abilities. She is the author of Laura Stamm's Power Skating, two other books, dozens of articles, and two other instructional videos on power skating; she is also a noted speaker and TV personality. Stamm's other interests include dancing, backpacking, kayaking, photography, and music. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laura Stamm's Power Skating (for hockey players) March 8, 2008
By Steve
Verified Purchase
The price tag for this DVD is a little steep but worth every penny! I have other "how to do it" DVD's on hockey skating, and they are pretty good but not in the same league with this one. Laura's book, together with this DVD cover everything you need to know. Doesn't matter if you are using it to teach yourself, or somebody else she very effectively covers this complicated issue in a clear, easy way to understand. Even if you are already a good skater and want to improve your game...this is it.
So...why did I get this DVD? I am teaching my 9 yr. old to play hockey. I have never coached before and wanted a 'bible' to use as refrence so I bought Laura's accompanying book (same title). The book is a wee bit 'dry' and difficult to use with a kid. Getting the DVD was the best thing I could have done to help him understand what it takes to become an accomplished and powerful skater. The skaters who demonstrate the basic techniques on the DVD are perfect for showing what to do and what not to do.
Parents, coaches and players...get this book. You will not be sorry!

The books is better at describing the methods and should be bought first, then the DVD is necessary to make sure you are doing it right. Don't skimp, buy them both, but get the book first!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time tested drills and skills for the game April 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
I recently started playing hockey again after a 28 year lay off. I watched the video and then attended a local power skating class at my local rink. Everything taught at the local class was consistent with the video. However, this video goes into much more detail and contains much more material than could be taught in a night of power skating class. The drills and explanations in the video are clear, concise, and well demonstrated.
