Should young hockey players “Train like the Pros”?
I am so lucky because I get to train some great hockey players. I train a Stanley Cup champion and I train some 13-14 year old hockey players who dominate their league. These all great athletes, but do I train them the same? Do I train my young athletes “train like the pros”? My answer is yes and no. I suppose if a pro player came to me and he or she had never trained for hockey before, then I would start them at the beginning, so in that case the answer would be yes, but in all other cases the answer is a resounding NO!! Here are my goals for training young hockey players:
This puts the athlete in a position to capitalize on any opportunities that come their way.
