I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I’m still getting caught up after a 5-day stint in San Diego for ART Spine, 4 days of being hurricaned in, 5 days of working at the USA Women’s National Hockey Team’s Pre-4-Nations Camp (they won the championship in Finland this past weekend with a 3-0 victory over Canada!), and most recently, hosting a 2-day PRI Seminar at Endeavor this past weekend.
PRI was a lot of fun, and if you’re in the training or rehabilitation industries and haven’t taken a course yet, I’d strongly encourage you to look into it. Sarah Cahill (who is an AWESOME S&C Coach at Northeastern, as well as with the US Women’s National Hockey Team) and a significant chunk of Mike Boyle’s Staff at MBSC (Kevin Carr, Brendon Rearick, Ana Tocco, Jill Zeller, and Tim Morrill) all crashed at my place in Philly (standing room only). It was great to catch up with all of them and bounce ideas back and forth over the weekend. We also had several current and former Cressey Performance interns/coaches make their way down, and essentially my entire local referral network attended. I’m really looking forward to hosting their Pelvis Restoration Course April 6-7 next year.
Needless to say, I haven’t had as much time to sit down and write as usual. A couple weeks ago, however, I had an opportunity to do an interview for a freelance writer named Jeff Angus, who runs a website titled “Angus Certified”. He posted the first part of the interview this morning, which you can access here: An Interview with Hockey Trainer Kevin Neeld
The second part of the interview will be up later in the week. In the meantime, check this out and let know if you have any comments/questions by posting them below!
To your success,
P.S. If you want to maximize the transfer of your off-ice training to on-ice performance, you’ll want to follow a specific hockey training system designed to do just that.
