We're Becky and David Krueger and here at Sk8 Gr8 Hockey, one of the main services we provide is private skating instruction for all ages and abilities. We currently give most of our private lessons and clinics in Richfield, South St. Paul Woog, and at our private synthetic rink in Maplewood.
Our Philosophy: Hockey is a difficult game to master so we are compartmentalizing the skill development. This allows players to concentrate on each skill one at a time for true mastery without the distraction of trying to learn everything at once. This is European/Russian style training.
Feel free to read more about our qualified instructors and how our lessons work. When you are ready, contact us to schedule private or small group lessons or we can answer any questions you might have.
