Cathy Andrade’s coaching career started in Calgary, Canada (1984) after she obtained triple gold figure skating & NCCP coaching certifications. She runs Cathy’s Power Skating out of Solar4America Ice in San Jose, where the San Jose Sharks practice. She’s been teaching power skating in the Bay Area to all age levels since 1992 and has worked privately with San Jose Sharks players like Joe Pavelski and Kevin Labanc.
Cathy offers group and private hockey skating lessons, open to all experience levels. If you want to work with the Bay Area’s premier hockey skating instructor, contact her here.
Also, check out Cathy’s career accomplishments — you can also read testimonials from Labanc, Brent Burns, Scott Hannan, Rob Zettler, Roy Sommer, and Jamie Baker.
Cathy and her husband, Randy Andrade, run Extra Hour Hockey Training facility located one mile from Solar4America Ice in San Jose. Extra Hour is a comprehensive off-ice hockey training facility, boasting Northern California’s only skating treadmill, and the best in synthetic ice.
Want to up your on-ice game off the ice? Extra Hour Hockey Training hosts weekly training classes, mini-rink skating sessions, shooting and stickhandling lessons, goalie training, biomechanics testing, online Zoom training, among other courses.
See the full list of classes here.
A host of San Jose Sharks players, past and present, have visited Extra Hour just this summer, including Burns, Hannan, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Jonathan Cheechoo, Mark Smith, and Nikolai Knyzhov.
