Elite Skating & Hockey

Kimberly Marfleet specializes in technical skating specifically for hockey players of all levels. She is located out of the Langley Sportsplex in British Columbia. Kim teaches private lessons, small groups and entire hockey teams. She teaches advanced skating efficiency and proper body alignment. Kimberly’s technique and skating drills are easily transferable into game situations.

 

Kim Marfleet

Kimberly (Popp) Marfleet began skating at the age of 3 with the North Delta Sungod Skating Club. She became a competitive Figure Skater at 9 years of age. Both Kim and her partner were B.C. Champions for five straight years at the Pre-Novice, Novice and Junior Dance Levels.They achieved Bronze, Silver, and Gold at Western Divisionals and ultimately competed at the Canadian Nationals in Novice and Junior Dance.
In 1988, Kim and her partner won a Silver medal for Novice Dance at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships in Victoria. They were honored to be invited to an intense National Dance Seminar that included the highest level coaching with the top Dance Coaches in Canada. Later that year, they were chosen to represent Canada at the Junior World Championships in Sarajevo; however, unfortunately Kim’s partner fractured his ankle just days before they were scheduled to leave. After competing at the Junior Level at Nationals, Kim turned Professional and began her coaching career, where she has been coaching since 2004.

Kim has achieved her Gold Dances, Variation and Senior Free Daance, Junior Silver Free Skate and her Fourth Figure Test.

Kim is a Technical Skating Specialist. She teaches her students how to be powerful, quick and efficient skaters by teaching deep edges and long powerful strides. Kim Marfleet has taught Power Skating to House and Rep Hockey players from Hockey 1 to Junior AAA players. She has taught many successful students, who are top Rep players at Semihamoo Minor, Cloverdale Minor, North Delta Minor, North Surrey Minor, and Langley Minor Hockey Associations, including Burnaby Winter Club and North Shore Winter Club; along with students who are now very successful in Figure Skating.

“I look forward to coaching and teaching those who wish to learn! Figure Skating has always been my passion and I am committed to teaching any skater who is keen in learning the fundamentals and skills so that they too can enjoy the art of the sport of skating as much as I have.”
~ Kim Marfleet

This high energy class is for Rep Players & those House Players wanting to try out for Rep.
The focal point in this Class is to develop proper Skating Technique and not meant as a Conditioning Class. Coach
Kim Marfleet is a specialist in teaching Open Hips & V-Diamond stride technique. The focus is solely on developing
proper skating skills & teaching players the theory behind the skills & technique so they can better identify with the power
behind the mechanics of edge, power & stride. The theory is to begin by reducing the players’ speed by teaching them
the correct way of skating. Shortly thereafter, the player is brought back up to speed; at which time we add the puck. The
outcome: Players will learn to develop an Elongated Stride, use Less energy at top speed that will yield results in a
Faster SPEED! The First class will commence with working on basic forward and backward skating skills as the rest of
our training structure is built off of the techniques that are covered after learning these two basic skills. This is what will be taught within the program:

 Powerful Crossovers
 Agility Maneuvers
 Explosive Starts & Acceleration
 Resistance Drills
 Tight Turns
 Balance & Weight Transfer
 Skating Drills with Pucks last 15 minutes of class
 Forwards Skating Technique
 Backward Skating Technique
 Side to Side Mobility
