Coming into training camp and tryouts at your physical best is now a requirement to compete at the highest level. The dry land sessions during this week will be broken into sessions that focus on power, speed and conditioning. Power is our ability to produce force quickly. Speed is the top rate at which we can move. These are skills that can be taught, practiced and developed with the proper coaching. Our conditioning level dictates how often we can produce power and speed and to what degree. Hockey is a game of repeated high intensity intervals, we need excellent conditioning to be able to perform at a high level for a whole game. The higher level of hockey you compete at the more important it is to be great at the elements that are under your control. This dry land training in this is designed to make sure you are ready.
Players will not only be challenged physically but mentally as well during our boardroom sessions. Our JHD professional coaches will keep everyone involved through detailed discussions about individual technique and team tactics using National Hockey League video clips.
