Working with Barb since 2001 has been instrumental in taking my game to new levels. Barb closely assesses my skating techniques and then delivers specific instruction to where I can improve. I believe the detailed skating instruction that Barb has given me has been an advantage for me playing in the NHL and allowed me to achieve my dream of playing for Canada in the Olympics.

I have been working with Barb since 2008. Barb has an excellent ability to identify the strengths and weaknesses in your skating and offer valuable insights for improvement. She has great technical knowledge that can help you adjust to the rigors of the NHL and the ever-increasing speed of the game. She is a true professional and I’m grateful to have had her help.

After 2 full years of training with Barb my only regret is that I didn’t start working with her earlier. She has as an incredible ability to tweak certain aspects of my skating game, which I have found to make me a more powerful, balanced and efficient skater. Barb is flat out the most knowledgable and technically sound skating coach I’ve ever worked with. MANNY MALHOTRA

Skating is the most important hockey skill – it is the foundation for success in the game. Barb Irving Aidelbaum’s understanding of skating biomechanics has helped both young athletes and professional players. Her coaching and skating expertise can help you reach a new performance level.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACH

Barb Aidelbaum shows a real dedication towards helping players learn about on-ice safety and awareness with her primary goal: safety along the boards. Her power skating skills that she will implement, along with her safety and awareness program, are long overdue. Any time spent with Barb will be time well spent. BRAD LAZAROWICH

Barb has been a huge influence in my hockey career. She has given me a strong work ethic and helped me reach my potential as an NHL skater. She doesn’t try to change my style but builds on the skill set i have. COLIN FRASER

In todays game I believe skating is the number 1 skill you must have to be an elite player. The game keeps getting quicker and faster. After breaking an ankle I felt a half-step behind. until I worked with Barb. Then I felt I was a half step ahead. She also addressed my balance and agility- things I didn’t think were of great importance. No doubt Barb made me a better skater – and I had fun while doing it! DAVID BOOTH
