Kevin Neeld — Hockey Training, Sports Performance, & Sports Science

Hockey Training Interview

At the end of last week, I did an interview on various hockey training and player development topics with my friend Brian St. Pierre. In the interview, we covered:

  1. My background and how I got involved with training hockey players
  2. Why hockey players are the best athletes to train
  3. Common issues I see in youth and adult hockey players
  4. The integration between performance enhancement and injury prevention
  5. Why youth hockey coaches in the US need to start paying attention to the evidence around us of a failed long-term development system and start taking notes on USA Hockey’s new ADM
  6. What most people don’t know about the Soviet’s “hockey schools”
  7. How I assess a new hockey player
  8. The most common hip limitation I see in all hockey players and how it affects their stride
  9. Why Ultimate Hockey Nutrition is the single best nutrition resource for hockey players ever created

As you can tell, we went through a lot in this interview. Take a few minutes to read through it and if you have any questions, post them below!
