As an athlete progresses through his/her career, countless unique experiences are implanted upon this player’s mind. Through these experiences, hockey players begin to build an approach. This approach combines these experiences with core fundamentals and the individual’s distinct strengths and limitations.
During a RINK Training Centre experience, athletes will seek to hone, refine and repackage this distinct approach. A combination of technical enhancements and physiological guidance (where necessary) will, in turn, drive one’s psychological game forward. Technical, physiological, psychological training – a hallmark of our training facility.
Off-Ice Development with Testify Performance
We take a multi-faceted approach to in-season off-ice development. The process begins with player profiling consisting of both off-ice and on-ice testing, a group focused needs analysis, and collaborative goal setting between our professionals, the RINK Player and Goalie Development teams, and your associations coaches. During in-season team sessions we forget the word “maintain” and focus on “improving” the qualities that help your players perform the best on and off the ice.
Our professionals will help educate the group along the way on proper warm-up/activation and cooldown/recovery techniques to ensure that they are prepared for the high demands of the season. Whether it be in the gym, on the track, or in the yoga studio, our periodized in-season program will make sure that the group is not only improving but peaking at the right time. Team education seminars on topics such as nutrition and hydration, sleep and recovery, as well as in game respiratory techniques are also available for groups looking to take their performance to the next level.
