On ice power skating for hockey players
Learn from the pioneers of power skating!
Hockey is an intricate and difficult sport. It requires many skills, all of which are separate and distinct, yet inter-related and mutually dependent. To master each skill takes years of practice and dedication.
Some of these skills include stick handling, passing, shooting, pass reception, offensive play, defensive play, team systems, etc.
Add to these other areas of training for hockey - conditioning (strength, power, explosiveness, and flexibility), nutrition, rest, eye training, mental awareness, and you can see that becoming a "complete" hockey player is a full time job.
The one skill that I have not mentioned tends to be overlooked and is too often underestimated. Yet it is in actuality the most fundamental skill in hockey – Skating.
