Christian Grunnah is the owner and head instructor of Grunnah Power Skating + Hockey School located in Chicago, Illinois. A native of Chicago, Christian Grunnah culminated his amateur hockey career at the highly acclaimed college preparatory school Shattuck-St. Mary’s in Faribault, Minnesota. Having learned to skate from his father, a three-time U.S. National Champion speed skater, Christian’s approach to hockey has always been unique to that of his peers. Since he was never the biggest player on the ice, he utilized his ability to skate quickly, effectively and efficiently to be a high impact player. Using what he has learned from in-game experience, Christian has applied these techniques—as well as techniques from figure skating, biomechanics and downhill ice cross—to all of his coaching and instructing. With a Master of Fine Arts degree in acting from the Moscow Art Theatre in Russia, with a focus on ensemble, acrobatic and movement training techniques analogous to those used by the famous Red Army hockey program, Christian also brings a unique perspective on performance to his on-ice teachings. He has trained and played with NHL-level players both on and off the ice, and has coached internationally in Slovakia, Germany, Austria, and England.
DESCRIPTION: This camp will introduce players to advanced skating techniques used specifically for control, power, and efficiency that relate directly to in-game scenarios. Each of the three sessions will focus on developing the technical mastery of these dynamic skating skills, which will then be combined with the appropriate puck control and shooting techniques utilized in each game situation.
ELIGIBILITY: The sessions are designed for experienced youth hockey players and are not suitable for beginner or very young players. Please contact the Hockey Director if you have questions regarding your player's eligibility. Advance registration is required; no walk-ons permitted.
