Dr. Nils Semjonovs grew up in Latvia, and that is where his hockey journey began. Nils’ passion for hockey did not leave him after he stopped playing at a competitive level. He continued to be involved in hockey by working nationwide, providing power skating lessons to organizations and camps like Heartland Hockey Camp and Bob Hartley High Intensity Camp. Nils graduated from Utica University with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. By combining the two assets of coaching and physical therapy, Nils recognized that many athletes are not using their full potential due to a poor foundation in skating and movement. His experience in physical therapy allows him to analyze and identify key components in the movements necessary for athletes to achieve success in their road to development on the ice. Nils uses motor learning strategies to enhance athletes' growth for long term learning and to create proper development.
