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

The Path to the NHL

It’s been a few weeks since my last post. While I typically don’t  like to go this long without sharing some content with you, I’ve been extremely busy working on a few exciting projects to be released throughout this year. More information on that in the near future. In the meantime, I wanted to share an article with you that someone sent me a few days ago. I still think the idea of long-term athletic development is incredibly misunderstood and there seems to be a trend to listen to the opinions of a former player, parent, or coach that is pulling their opinion from a fairly limited sample size and usually the over-glorification of an outlier, instead of listening to the pool of experts from various fields that are all championing the more intelligent approach. With that said, it never hurts to have a coach from the highest levels support an idea that we know to be true, yet still have to argue for.  Check out the article below. It’s a quick read, so share it with anyone else you know in the hockey world.
