Sports Performance: Finding the Magic

IMG_8781.JPG

Today I want to talk to you about the importance of strength and conditioning work in addition to improving sport skill. We have our offseason hockey program coming up on July 8, and in this program we are going to develop your strength, your speed, and your conditioning among many other qualities. I’d like to point out that if we think about an athlete and what all impacts their performance - if we have two identical athletes in terms of skill level, the one thing that is going to set them apart is their strength and their conditioning. With that, it’s very important that we do not neglect either one of these - sport skill or strength and conditioning. When we have both working optimally, that is when the athlete will function their best. When we meet somewhere in the middle, between sport skill and strength and conditioning - that’s where the magic happens. Hope to see you on July 8 at our offseason hockey program!
