Why Intense Hockey Training?
Our 2017 IHT program will provide players with a professionally run development program. The IHT provides both on-ice and off-ice training components with additional emphasis on individual player development.
Our coaching staff takes an invested interest in your player. We evaluate the athletes and determine what their strengths and weaknesses are. We then make sure that both we as coaches and the players understand where exactly they are as far as their development. Emphasizing their strengths and working on their weaknesses, we set out with the goal of maximizing their potential giving them the best chance of playing at the highest level possible.
Our IHT program is managed and run by a team of experienced coaches with backgrounds that include extensive playing careers and years of success in coaching and player development.

IHT Program Director
We provide a high-intensity on-ice curriculum, implemented each day by our professional staff. Our on-ice training focuses on speed, intensity, puck movement, small area games, battles, and competitions. In addition, we include individual skill development to better allow our athletes the ability to incorporate their individual skills into the overall development and game situations created during on-ice training.
Our focus is on the development of hockey-specific strength and conditioning. Training will focus on the proper technique and execution of the exercises and drills necessary to develop the athletes' core muscle groups through the use of resistance training and conditioning. The goal is to develop all eight fitness abilities that will take the athlete to the next level- endurance, strength, power, coordination, speed, agility, balance, and flexibility
Our focus is on the development of hockey-specific skills and functional movement. Training will focus on shooting strength, technique and accuracy, stickhandling, slideboard stride power and development, and first step quickness. In addition to skills, developing the athlete's awareness of their body in space as they grow through low-intensity, body-weighted, functional movement in association with the seven primal movement patterns; squat, lunge, push, pull, twist, bend, and gait.
