Off Ice Focus

We provide a high-intensity on-ice & off-ice curriculum, implemented each day by our professional staff. Our on-ice training focuses on speed, intensity, puck movement, small area games, battles, and competitions. Our focus is on the development of hockey-specific strength and conditioning. Training will focus on the proper technique and execution of the exercises and drills necessary to develop the athletes’ core muscle groups through the use of resistance training and conditioning. The goal is to develop all eight fitness abilities that will take the athlete to the next level- endurance, strength, power, coordination, speed, agility, balance, and flexibility. Training will focus on shooting strength, technique and accuracy, stickhandling, slideboard stride power and development, and first step quickness. In addition to skills, developing the athlete’s awareness of their body in space as they grow through low-intensity, body-weighted, functional movement in association with the seven primal movement patterns; squat, lunge, push, pull, twist, bend, and gait.

On Ice (Synthetic) Focus

On Ice will focus on every skill area or certain points of emphasis. Slide-Boards: works on players skating stride, form and power. Synthetic-Ice: continues to work on a players stride, but focuses even more on the explosiveness of their first few steps. Shooting Rink: are used to work on players shot quickness, power, and accuracy. Stick-Handling Area: is designed to work on all aspects of player’s puck control, including passing and puck handling. Also our bungee, and stride machines will provide a players the endurance and muscle building needed to stay in the game longer and become faster.
