2012 Summer Camp

The Weiss Tech Hockey Summer Camp provides a fantastic opportunity for world-class training, at a world class facility

Weiss Tech Hockey: History

We started Weiss Tech Hockey back in 2004 as a high-quality summer camp for local players in the Salt Lake area. Over the years, Weiss Tech Hockey has evolved, becoming very involved in the online hockey community. With a world-wide following, we have been receiving an ever-increasing number of requests from hockey folks wanting us to put forth a camp format that would would be more accessible for players from out of state (or out of country).

Summer Camp: New Format

We decided that this was the year to accommodate those requests, and we have put together a camp that could be considered a “Hockey Vacation.” This a camp where you will receive world-class instruction, at world class facilities, and the rest of the family will have a blast at the same time!

You see, Utah is really the perfect location for a camp like this. It’s a central location for hockey in the Western United States, and we will be running the camp out of the Olympic Oval, a venue from the 2002 Winter Olympics. Utah is also a fantastic vacation spot for the outdoor enthusiasts with tons of stuff for the family to do while the players are on the ice.

Camp Overview

The camp runs July 30 through Aug. 3 at the Olympic Oval in Kearns, UT. The daily schedule consists of the following:

  • 2.5 hours of ice
  • 45 min dryland conditioning
  • 45 min off-ice skill development (sponsored by HockeyShot.com)
  • 30 min classroom session (chalk-talk/video training)

Needless to say, this will be an intense week of hockey training, and a ton of fun as well!

Your Invitation

We would love to have you attend our Summer Camp this year. Please feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email if you have any questions at all. Cheers!

Increase Hockey Speed with Plyometric Training

Click Here for a printout of the hockey plyometrics diagram used in the video.

Plyometric training is a great way to increase your leg strength and explosiveness, which will contribute to improved hockey speed and skating power. There are many different plyometric exercises and routines out there. This video outlines one of my favorite methods for developing that leg strength and explosive power that all hockey players need. I’ve had a lot of success with this routine, but I’m interested to know what other plyometric exercises you may have seen or used in the past.

Enjoy!

PS: Here is a link where you can purchase your own set of plyometric boxes. These aren’t exactly the same as the ones I have, but they will definitely do the trick. This place lets you mix and match sizes ranging from 6″ up to 42″ – Click Here to check it out.
