Use these Dryland Training Kits from HockeyShot to set up Structured, Well-Organized Dryland Sessions with your Team! I recently had the opportunity to do a detailed review on HockeyShot's Dryland Training Kits. So I took my boy Tyler down to the tennis courts to have a workout and make some videos. We had a great workout, and had a blast putting these videos together. These kits are available in three different sets; the Starter Kit, Premium, and Premium Plus. I reviewed the Starter Kit, and was impressed with how much equipment it came with, even for the lowest-priced option! All three kits are fantastic. The main difference it that the Premium and Premium Plus kits come with more equipment (Speed Chutes & Plyo Hurdles) In this post, I'm including 6…

In this video, I show an example of timing, support, and multiple receiving zones, using a simple "swing" regroup. ENJOY!

Check the Embedded PLAYLIST Above, for Updated NHL Play Dissections This post is a little different than usual. I've recently put together a number of videos dissecting various NHL plays and situations.

So... the video above is actually a PLAYLIST, which will update itself whenever I post a new play dissection to YouTube. When you hover your mouse over the video, you'll see the other play dissections I've already posted. Many of these dissections will refer back to concepts we've discussed in the Coaches' Training Course, so take a browse through the course if you haven't yet. I'm going to be posting more play dissections as we progress through the…

Off Ice Conditioning Program

Off-ice Training, Speed, Strength
Off Ice Conditioning Program From time-to-time I am offered to participate in different hockey specific programs because of all the hits this site takes each day. A coach I have known for about a year now is starting up what I think might be an interesting web based conditioning program for hockey players. Take a look at his website by clicking the image below and see if you are interested. This may be something you want to pass along to your players for the off-season. Here is a short link you can give to your players if you think they might be interested http://bit.ly/b2ATIG Between today and March 15th there will be different videos on the site to give you an idea of what’s to come. On the 15th there will…
