For those of you who have taken hockey classes in the Pittsburgh area, which ones did you find helped you the most? Personally, the Island Storm Learn to Play Hockey for Women class helped me with the very basics. Marianne Watkins' power skating class helped me learn the skating skills to be able to stop correctly as well as pivot to turn backwards (I was really having trouble with both of these). The Adult Systems class at the Mt. Lebanon Ice Center really helped my learn positioning for faceoffs, where to go after the faceoff depending on who ends up with the puck, as well as where I should position myself when my team is entering the offensive zone.
These are the three classes I personally would recommend taking.
What classes would you recommend? Please let everyone know in the comments!
