Cathys Power Skating supports Defending The Blue Line®. Cathy Andrade is the Junior Sharks and Santa Clara Blackhawks Power Skating Coach in California.

Cathy believes: "The key component to ensuring a hockey player’s success is becoming a fundamentally strong skater. This advantage can only be accomplished with proper training. The Bay Area renowned Cathy’s Power Hour Series is where you develop explosive speed, greater agility, and improved balance to reach your maximum skating potential – ultimately becoming an impact player."

February 2, 2014 - Cathy Andrade coordinated Skate For The Troops & Jr. Sharks "Skate for a Cause" at the San Jose Ice - Center Rink in San Jose, California. Over $62,000 was raised by all of the participants. Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks helped promote the event.
