Weiss Tech Hockey Reveals its Top 5 Most Popular Posts of All Time

I started this blog a little over 4 years ago… which is a long time in internet years! It started as a bit of an experiment for me. I wanted to try and use web technology to help local coaches with their practice plans. I’d been playing around with a “new” drill diagrammer I had just come across, DrillDraw, and thought it would be cool to make video explanations of drills using a “digital whiteboard.”

I started by posting a few video explanations of my favorite drills, and things just kinda took off from there! At that time, nobody was doing digital video explanations, and it seemed to be a method of delivery that resonated with coaches. As things have progressed, we’ve branched out into other aspects of hockey training and development, and the blog has developed into the format you see today.

This week I was doing a bit of reflection, and I got curious as to which of my posts have been the most popular (in terms of page views) over the past 4 years. So I decided to look into it, and post Weiss Tech Hockey’s Top 5 Most Popular Posts. Here they are (remember, my video-production abilities have evolved over the years… so you might get a good laugh at some of my older stuff!):

My New Hockey Training Set-up



Here’s a Quick Tour of my Basement Hockey Training Center!

You may have already heard… but we recently moved houses (literally across the street, actually!). We’ve got two crazy boys, and a third boy on the way, and it was just time to expand. Lucky for us, a bigger house across the street went up for sale just at the right time, so we jumped on it!

It’s taken a bit of time to get everything moved over and situated, but I finally had a chance to sort through, and set up my hockey training center. You might remember, space was a big concern in my old house, and I had most of my stuff crammed into the one side of our two-car garage. In our new house we have enough room to put it all in our unfinished basement, and I’m really happy about how it all turned out!

I figured I’d shoot a quick vid with the iPad, just to show you my new set-up. With summer quickly approaching, be on the lookout for more off-ice training videos, tips, and drills from Weiss Tech Hockey!

Cheers!

PYHL Coaches’ Meeting

What’s up guys! I do a monthly coaches meeting for one of our local leagues here in Utah… We decided to try this month’s meeting online instead of having everyone spend another night at the rink. I’ve had a couple of requests to see the meeting, so I figured I’d post it here. Keep in mind, some of the stuff we’re talking about is specific to our organization, but there’s still some good discussion in here.

Enjoy!

PS – I got some of my material on the small area games stuff from Coach Nielson’s recent blog posts at http://coachnielsen.wordpress.com/ He’s got a great site, with great explanations!
