Most of you are now at the age where it is appropriate to begin a Strength and Conditioning program. This year we will be using a program designed by Volt Athletics and accessed through an app on your phones. The program is specifically tailored for hockey. There will generally be 3 workouts per week. Workouts will be conducted at home or ideally a school gym. I do not expect players to purchase gym memberships. Rather players should improvise with what they have available to them.
The Volt app will be your new workout tool, walking you through each workout as we complete them throughout the year. We are fortunate to have access to this technology and expertise and I'm excited to see how it will impact your athletic development and the teams performance!
How to Get Started with Volt:
Your Training Program:
We'll go through all this together once we're up and running with Volt. Be on the lookout for a team practice in early July. Until then players should get started with the exercises.
Here's a quick video highlighting how Volt works for coaches and athletes: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wH6E8aZpCOY&feature=youtu.be)
The following players have been selected to play on the 2019-20 St Lawrence Steel 16U team. Please note that the roster exceeds the maximum allowed roster of 18 Skaters and 2 goalies. Currently there are a few players that are exploring opportunities to further their development with full season 18U AAA teams in Canada. Rather than reduce the roster now and make additions later I felt it was best to keep more players involved and participating throughout the summer. The final statebound roster will be determined in September. Players should all understand that at this level ice time is not equal. In Q games and State tournament play we rely heavily on the top 2-3 lines. The final roster will in large part be determined by the willingness of those fourth line players to understand their role in killing penalties and supporting the team in ways that go beyond just on the ice. Congratulations and I look forward to the season.
