  • Peak Performance – A Big Picture Approach

    Peak Performance – A Big Picture Approach

    It’s not realistic for players to expect to perform at their peak every game. Ups and downs are part of life and the game. What separates the good from the great is how they make the best of their bad days.

  • Offseason Training: Plan to Peak for Tryouts

    Offseason Training: Plan to Peak for Tryouts

    The question I’m most often asked as a trainer is: what should my son or daughter do in the offseason? It’s a great question and the answer is probably more obvious than you think. Yet most players and trainers get it wrong.

    The importance of being a good teammate

    “One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team” -Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. In sports, the team that finishes on top is not always determined by the most talent but by the team that plays like a team.

    COACH ENIO: Today’s Drill: The 3-on-2 Triple Drive Offence

    With the speed of today’s game and forwards tracking back (backchecking) so hard on the puck, having a trailer on a 3-on-1 or a 3-on-2 situation doesn’t work anymore.

  • That’s How We Roll

    That’s How We Roll

    The latest hockey trend since the “flow” is rolling. Rolling is normally done with foam rollers, but also with balls of different size and hardness. Rolling has its origins in physio and massage therapy and is a self-myofascial release (MSR) technique, meaning you are giving yourself a massage. Because it’s so easy to do, it has made its way to our gyms, our homes and now our rinks.

    Do the Splits With Just 10 Minutes a Day of Stretching

    Simulate Success

    When I was in the Air Force (Yup!), our pilots starting making extensive use of flight simulators to accelerate their learning curve. This allowed more pilots to train at the same time, regardless of the limited number of trainers and flight hours available

  • Yoga for Hockey Players

    Yoga for Hockey Players

    Yoga for hockey is a relatively new thing. Fifteen years ago, very few players or NHL teams included yoga in their conditioning programs. Today, yoga is a key component of many successful hockey programs. But there are many varieties of yoga practices and not all of them are suitable or beneficial for hockey.
