Hockey Training Radio Week: Part 1

This is an exceptionally busy week for me. On Thursday I fly up to Boston for a 3-day course, then immediately drive to Lake Placid to help with the end of the US Women’s National Team camp, before ultimately heading to Burlington, VT with the team for the IIHF World Championships. In a nutshell, I’ll be on the road from March 29-April 15th, which means I have 3 days to prepare for being gone for 2.5 weeks! That said, I’m pumped up for the course coming up and to spend some time with my friend Devan McConnell, who took over this year as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at UMass Lowell. I’m honored to have an opportunity to be involved with the US program as well, and humbled to work alongside such a great staff and group of players. Should be an exciting few weeks!

With all that in mind, I’m going to do my best to continue posting some hockey training and player development articles/videos for you over the ensuing weeks, but I’m really not sure how much down time I’ll have. Instead of leaving you stranded this week, I wanted to share a few interviews that I’ve done over the last month, starting with one I did with my friend Maria Mountain on Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI). If you’re unfamiliar with FAI, this is one of the most common injuries that affects elite level hockey players currently and early intervention is key to minimizing the damage (e.g. those working in youth hockey should be aware of some of the potential developmental causes and symptoms). You can listen to and/or download the interview at the link below.
