Skills Instruction

With hockey in Seattle becoming more competitive, private and small group instruction has proved to be an excellent resource for players to gain an edge against the competition. Kent Valley Ice Centre is proud to be home to some of the top skills coaches in the Seattle area. In addition to competing at an elite level, our instructors have years of experience coaching some of best youth players in the state. As the game of hockey continues to evolve, our development coaches stay up to date on the latest game tactics and concepts to ensure their students receive the highest quality of instruction. 


All of the coaches below are independent contractors who work exclusively out of the Kent Valley Ice Centre. Lessons are held on stick and pucks, public skates, or in the off-ice training facility. Payment for the lesson is paid directly to the pro. Admission for the ice time or use of the off ice training center is paid to the rink and can be processed online or in person upon arrival. Rates and availability vary by instructor.  Click the email link below each instructor to connect with a private skills instructor today!
