Pretty standard for younger kids.

Quick acceleration calls for short strides and quick feet. Top end speed is longer strides that are more focused on power. The technique for each is quite different.

My son is 7 and he is the opposite. He is the quickest skater on his team with short powerful strides but there are a couple of kids who are much faster top speed. We work on him lengthening his stride to improve his speed every time we are on the ice.
