As a quick reminder, this is the last day to get a FREE copy of Breakaway Hockey Speed, Hockey Nutrition 101, and The Mental Performance Package for joining our Hockey Training Expert community!
The other day I got an email from a parent that went like this:
“This package sounds amazing but I think for my soon to be 12 year old son – I was looking for something that may help him with positioning and where to go and how to read/anticipate plays better – since he not the fastest shaker it’s even more important he understands where and when to go. He’s working so hard out there but not a big threat for the opposing team. Could this package help with any of those things.”
This is a GREAT email, and I encourage those of you with similar questions to email me.
“A lot of the information on the site will definitely help your son become a faster skater. At 12 years old, he still has PLENTY of time to develop speed to compete at higher levels. As of now, the site is more geared toward off-ice aspects of player development. While I do have big plans for including more on-ice skill work, there isn’t currently anything on there that would assist your son’s ability to read the play.
I agree that this ability is incredibly important for hockey players though! One of the ways I learned while I was playing was by watching players at the next level (either higher levels at my age or older players). It’s helpful to follow a single player on the ice (pick a good one!) and watch how he reacts to certain situations. If he’s receptive to it, you may be able to point out a couple things you notice about good plays (around or away from the puck) that other players are making.”
