“The Better The Athlete, The More Complete The Player”
From the onset the Sylvan Lake Hockey Camp has had a program that encompassed both on ice and off ice training. Now with Hockey Canada/Hockey Alberta’s emphasis on the “Long Term Player Development” (LTPD) initiative, one that strongly recommends cross training to cultivate athleticism, we have been only to happy, for the past two summers, to align our development strategies with theirs.
The LTPD program is age specific training, adaptable to all abilities. The on ice program uses the latest success oriented drills to develop the hockey skills while, the off ice afternoon physical training includes exercise drills and other sports or even simple games to develop other motor skills and hence, athleticism.
The SLHC on ice program takes advantage of all the latest information and drills available through this program. Each morning off ice session is an interactive program geared towards the reasoning behind the training, nutrition, and interaction with the social aspect of the game i.e. team mates, opposition players, coaches etc.
The better the athlete the more complete the hockey player.
