STRENGTH & CONDITIONING
Strength training, done correctly, can benefit players of any age. If you're looking to improve general strength, explosiveness, flexibility and coordination off-season dry land training can help prepare you for a successful hockey season.
Each team has three skaters and a goalie on the ice at a time, giving players much more time to skate and handle the puck. Games take place on a smaller rink forcing quick decisions and puck movement. Leagues run spring, summer and fall. Recommended team size is 7-13 depending on how many touches you want your kids to have. Some leagues offer the opportunity to sign up individually or grab your friends and make a team!
