It takes dedication to become a great hockey player. We know because our team members have worked with some of the NHL's biggest stars.

Our Training Approach

Whatever your current skill level, our hockey experts deliver a comprehensive and individualized approach to improve every aspect of your game. It starts with a thorough assessment of your skills, as well as analysis of your physical condition, strengths and weaknesses.

From there, we create a personalized plan to take your performance to the next level, incorporating:

  • Hockey-specific strength and aerobic training
  • Hockey skills (skating, shooting, stick handling)
  • Corrective exercises for mobility, stability and injury prevention
  • Sports nutrition and hydration
  • Vision/ocular training
  • Mental preparation/sports psychology

Our Facilities and Technology

Hockey treadmill

You’ll train in a premiere hockey facility, outfitted with state-of-the-art video analysis equipment, a Woodway skating treadmill, synthetic ice, and stick-handling and shooting-specific equipment.
