The Twist Sport Conditioning In-Season Hockey Training Program produces strength, speed and power in hockey players throughout the season, while keeping their bodies’ fresh and injury free. Mobility and stability training will increase the athletes’ flexibility and balance, leading to an increased range of motion to produce explosive power and quicker changes of direction on the ice. Athletes will learn to move efficiently by developing technique for lightning speed, evasive agility, and first step quickness. Acquiring proper biomechanics for explosive acceleration and deceleration will translate into effective transitions and powerful turns on the ice. By building core strength and smart muscle, the hockey athlete will develop a linked system of sport specific positional strength, enabling them to perform functionally at an elite level on the ice. A scientific periodized progression of training designed by our world class team of strength and conditioning coaches will create the environment for excellence.
