HEAT stands for Hockey Edge Agility Training and was formed to give hockey players an opportunity to improve their skating skills and over all strength. Whether you are just starting your hockey career or have been playing for years, one thing is for certain, if you can't skate, you can't play. Through her years of figure skating technique training, Lindsay has developed the essential breakdown for efficient power skating, making every stroke count. The key to power on the ice is a combination of proper body alignment for balance and a command of all edges, forward and backwards. For those seasoned skaters, Lindsay offers quickness training to improve overall body strength and endurance.
Meet The HEAT Team
Power Skating Coach
Lindsay Tilley is a USFS triple gold medalist in Freestyle, Moves in the Field, and Ice Dancing. She’s been coaching competitive figure skating for over 15 years and holds PSA ratings in Freestyle, Moves in the Field, and Hockey 2. She believes that mastering fundamental skating skills is key to any successful skater, figure or hockey. Her approach starts with a good understanding of proper body alignment and edge control. Along with repetition and hard work, any skater can turn from good to unstoppable on the ice. At each session, players will strengthen the muscles used for game time explosiveness and breakaway movement. She currently works with a number of in house, recreational, travel hockey, and professional hockey organizations in Morris County, New Jersey. Lindsay is a member of the USFS, PSA, and USAHockey.
Hockey Skills Coach
HEAT is pleased to announce the hiring of Skills Coach Emily Janiga. Emily has a wealth of hockey knowledge and a passion for developing players. Her resume includes four years of NCAA Division 1 Hockey at Mercyhurst University and entering her 5th professional career season, currently playing for the Metropolitan Riveters of the NWHL. Her coaching philosophy very much aligns with HEAT's mentality of proper skill technique broken down bit by bit so that players not only understand "the how" but also "why." As a current professional player herself, she brings up to date skill technique with stick handling and game application; a perfect compliment to HEAT's Power Skating!
"Training with Lindsay has been the best thing we have done for our son's skating development. Aside from the results on the ice, which exceeded beyond our expectations, she makes each session not only challenging but also fun."
"My boys have been working with Lindsay Tilley for the last three years. She was able to help my 8 year old overcome an outside edge issue early on and has been instrumental in his development into a highly competitive travel hockey player. She masterfully creates the perfect balance of intensity, seriousness and fun on the ice. My oldest son consistently says that his workouts with Lindsay are the toughest practices he goes through; yet, he still looks forward to coming back to work with her to better his skating skills. Each lesson is unique, fun and challenging. She works with you to collaboratively set short and long term goals and communicates effectively along the way. Thank you Lindsay!"
"Joel has been taking private lessons and developing his edge work for over 5-years and had made a lot of progress. As he entered Bantam year he knew that he had plateaued in terms of his edge work and power skating and he needed a new approach. Thankfully for Joel, Coach Tilley was there to take him to the next level. Her personalized lessons and competitive spirit make Joel want to get up early to get to the rink before school and his skating as well as his competitive drive have improved exponentially. There is no doubt that he "Skates with Heat" thanks to Coach Tilley!"
