When you are looking for hockey programs, look for those that sound like fun. But don’t shy away from those that will challenge you, as that’s how you will improve. What you may not realize is that there are some hockey programs you don’t want to miss because they offer real opportunities to develop your skills as a player. Here are three in particular that will do your game some good:
• Puck Fundamentals – Basic puck skills are critical on both defense and offense. Hockey programs that emphasize puck fundamentals are a great way to improve your offensive output on the ice.
• Skating Fundamentals – Skating on the ice doesn’t always come naturally to every hockey player. Hockey programs focused on skating fundamentals can make you faster, more agile, and equipped to handle any unexpected moves during game play.
• Fitness & Conditioning – Did you know that your fitness can reduce the possibility of injury during a game? While focusing on hockey skills is an important part of confidence building, fitness and conditioning also play a role in how you perform.
Hockey programs should make you feel more comfortable on the ice, as well as challenge your current game play standards. At Action Innovation, we aim to combine both fun and practical learning opportunities in our hockey programs.
