Thanks for this. It's been improving lately. I have told him that when he bends his knees it is like getting a super-power for skating. He likes this concept and it seems to be catching on. The most often feedback I hear from coaches is, "He's improving every time out there." They seem happy, so I'll just enjoy the ride.
Oh and he had his first inter-squad game last weekend. He was out-skated by most of the other kids, but I think it opened his eyes to where he needs to improve. He got himself in front of the net for a couple rebound whacks and came very close to scoring, if not for some incredible saves by the goalie.
We've got a jamboree this weekend and he's very excited for that. He gets to play 4 games in 4 hours. Should be fun!
