Hall of Fame
At PowerSkating Academy, excellence in skating is a passion and a practice. By developing correct technique, we open doors for students of all ages and skill levels to achieve their full potential.
Kosta Likourezos has been skating with PowerSkating Academy for 11 years and is one of the Academy’s highest-level students. In 2014, Kosta received invitations to 4 OHL training camps after averaging almost point per game his 2013-14 season playing Midget AAA with the Vaughan Kings. He has been described as an offensively talented forward with great speed. His skating ability has recently turned the heads of several NHL scouts who inquired about his hockey background. Several local media outlets, including TSN, have featured Kosta’s outstanding accomplishments and skating ability.
“I feel that the Power Skating Academy is a very elite club. We do things that are totally different and bring a whole different level to the game by bringing in the figure skating. Figure skating brings in the edges and your balance on ice.”
My name is Josh Walt and I have been training with Dave and Laura Levtov for many years. In my first couple years of playing minor league hockey, I was a weak all around skater. That includes both my edge-work and my speed. Over the years, Dave and Laura have pushed me way beyond my limits and have taught me good work ethic that I will carry for the rest of my life. They have truly transformed my skating, and have transformed who I am as a hockey player. I am now always one of the strongest overall skaters on the ice almost every time I step on the ice. Recently, I was chosen to play for the U-19 Team Canada Hockey Team in the 2013 Maccabiah Games. The Maccabiah Games are the 3rd largest sporting event in the world, and my team was the only Junior Canadian Team to win gold. Making the team is one of the biggest accomplishments in my life, but getting 6 points in 5 games, and scoring one of the three goals in the gold medal game, helping my team win 3-2 over the United States was something unimaginable. This was a truly an unforgettable experience. I owe a huge thanks to Dave and Laura because there is no way this was possible without them. I consider Powerskating Academy to be my second family!
Jessa played defence with St. Lawrence University on a full NCAA Division 1 scholarship where she majored in political science. She hopes to one day play for Team Canada or for the CWHL.
Jessa has been training with PowerSkating Academy for 2 years now and absolutely loves it. Her coaches and teammates have noticed a big improvement in her skating. She is looking forward to many more years to come!
Miles Levtov has been coaching with PowerSkating Academy since its creation, and is a master of his blade. After only seven years of playing hockey, Miles is currently playing at the Junior level, with the goal of making a European team in the next two years. His phenomenal skating has allowed him to reach this level in such a short period of time.
“Having been raised in the PSA community, I have had the value of learning how to become the best skater I can be as well as helping others to reach their greatest potential. Hockey has allowed me to travel and train with some of the top coaches in the world and to experience and learn great things. Every skater should be able to learn and have fun at the same time.”
My name is Josh Beaton. I started coming to PowerSkating Academy about two years ago. When I started, I had just been cut from Jr. C and was stuck playing Juvenile. With the help of Dave and his teachers, I was able to make a Jr. A team the following year. The biggest improvement for me in that year was my skating. The technique I learned from PowerSkating Academy helped me more than any other camp I had ever been to. I owe a large portion of my success and ability to play Jr.A hockey to Dave and PowerSkating Academy.
