DRYLAND HOCKEY TRAINING CAMP 2021

blank image

Dryland training is critical for the off-season. This is where athletes can make or break their next season. By taking the time to put in the work players have the opportunity to come back with more technical skill, speed and power output. The more focused work you put in the off-season, the more you will stand out when you're back on the ice. 

OUR FOCUS is on 6 main athletic performance markers strength, agility, power output, hand eye/foot coordination, speed and conditioning, as well as, unilateral balance, core strength , and joint stability - skill developments that I believe are all critical to hockey.  

With a decade of experience, I have trained numerous athletes across a variety of sport, from soccer, basketball, hockey, slalom skiing, ultra runner, golf, baseball, and coaching an athlete to become a 3x national powerlifting record holder.

 

Injury prevention is one of my highest priorities. One of the biggest reasons athletes get injured is from misuse of muscle, meaning the movement is out of alignment. Throughout this camp we will be doing what I call “grooving new patterns” to minimize any misuse injuries. Movement is key and we plan to teach these athletes how to move so well and correctly that it becomes second nature. It becomes something they don’t have to put focus on so that the task in front of them (hockey) is their number 1 objective.

I understand how the body works, and what it needs to achieve individual goals within sport.   With this camp each individual will receive my expertise and custom program development. It will be executed with top of the line equipment and coaching. 

Not only will my programs challenge these athletes physically, but they will challenge them mentally.
