Meet the Author

Internationally renowned power skating coach Laura Stamm has been coaching hockey players for 30 years. The first woman ever to coach a major league professional hockey player, Stamm has shown the hockey world how important skating technique is to a player's success. She has worked with college and youth hockey players, U.S. Olympic team members, and professional players representing most National Hockey League (NHL) teams.

Laura Stamm has taught the Los Angeles Kings, the New York Rangers, the New York Islanders, and the New Jersey Devils. Her Power Skating System has been employed by prestigious teams around the world. Stamm has taught thousands of amateur and pro players how to increase their speed, ability, and efficiency on the ice, including many NHL stars.

A champion athlete in ice dancing and tennis, Stamm majored in physiology at Cornell University and went on to teach high school biology and physics. In 1971 she became a power skating coach at a summer hockey school directed by then-NHL stars Rod Gilbert and Brad Park. She went on to coach rookie New York Islander star Bob Nystrom. Her enormous success with him led to coaching assignments with other teams in the NHL and WHA (World Hockey Association).

Stamm currently conducts power skating clinics throughout the United States and Canada for players of all ages and abilities. She is the author of two successful earlier editions of this book, two other books, dozens of articles, and two instructional videos on power skating; she is also a noted speaker and TV personality.
