Contact Coach Dan directly with any questions:
The most important off-season training of the year is in the spring, because it establishes a base for the next six months of work. But plan carefully because this is a time to work on strengths and weaknesses. The off-season is as long as the winter season, so simple math tells you how much development can occur in the spring, summer, and fall. As we have clearly seen this year we as a whole need more strength, power, and speed. This makes this spring important to work on individual needs in the off-season. Once an athlete reaches the critical age for developing athleticism, the off season must be spent on quickness, speed, agility, control, coordination, and leg power or explo-siveness. The rate of neuromuscular learning, combined with the hormonal chemistry, puts you in a position to train intensely for power, speed, quickness, control, and skills. You don’t want to waste these years training improperly. Plan your off-season so that you emphasize different kinds of training at different periods of the spring, summer, and fall. This is not rocket science, but it does require that you plan ahead. To train without a plan is a sure way to fail. See you this spring!
Sprinting - Agility - Footwork
Shooting - Stick Handling - Core
Plyometrics - Postural Endurance
Hockey players develop explosive leg power by running, jumping, lifting weights, and playing other sports. Faster, stronger, and more powerful legs will allow us to skate with faster, stronger, more powerful strides. Stick handling and puck protection skills will become more effective with a strong base in the legs.
