It is important when training that you learn the PROPER and most efficient movement techniques from qualified Strength and Conditioning Coaches. We work with hockey players of all ages and sports levels as young as 10 years old. Strength and Conditioning programs are developed based on athletes age, sport, training level and strengths and weaknesses. Regardless of the athlete’s sport and age, we are always looking at building complete athletes through proper warm-ups, training programs, cool downs and recovery.
The Elite Hockey Program not only addresses specific athletic needs with each athlete but also prepares and trains athletes for the physical demands of hockey. It is important for each athlete to have a plan in place as fitness expectations at the highest level of hockey (Junior, OHL, NHL) are very high. Building an athletic foundation at a young age is very beneficial since a “Base” is formed and more challenging training can be introduced in the teenage years.
