As the summer begins to set and excitement for another season begins, it’s time to ask some important questions!
We hope you have had a great summer both relaxing and also working on your hockey skills. It’s been another awesome year training hockey players across the U.S. and we are looking forward to the remaining weeks of camp!
Based on the skill level of players we have witnessed this year, summer hockey skill development is more important than ever for youth hockey players. While time away from the rink is beneficial for players, so too is a focus you put on the areas of your game that need improvement.
In past articles we have talked about the importance of setting goals after a season. These goals should be a big part of your focus over the summer. What specific skills did you set out to improve? Did you train in those defined areas and see improvement? These are just a couple of the important questions players need to ask of themselves.
Yet another youth hockey season is within sight and the biggest question is if you are prepared to be the best hockey player possible.
Every player wants to be the captain.
Every player wants to skate on the power play and penalty kill.
Every player wants to be on the first line and score the winning goal.
However, only the players that are truly prepared for the season can realize their goals.
As you enjoy the final weeks of summer and anticipate the start of the season, continue working on your skill development. We still have limited availability in select camps this summer and invite you to train with us! Check our website for dates and locations. In the meantime, enjoy the hot summer sun and we look forward to seeing you in a chilly rink soon!
