SKILLS CLASS IS BACK!
Every Thursday from 5:45 – 7:00pm we will be hosting a skills class. Each week we will focus on a different skill/lift and various progressions, regressions and drills associated with that skill/lift.
Have a Suggestion for Skills Class? Talk with a Coach or shoot us a message 🙂
MAKE UP DAY
Friday will now be Make-Up Day at STOKE Cambridge. Gym hours will remain the same. The 6am class will follow Thursday’s Program. Evening hours will not change – the gym will be open for you to come in to complete a workout that you have missed from the week or to work on any skill/mobility work etc.
PRO TIP: Take a rest day Thursday and come to skills class.. Then Make-Up the workout on Friday

Hockey season is coming to an end. Some of you are in playoffs and some of you may already be done. Now the focus is shifting to off-season training – what should I be doing? How can I get bigger, faster, and stronger for next season? What do I need to do to take my game to the next level?
One of the best things you can do in the off-season is focus on becoming a better athlete. This means putting the hockey bag away for a couple of weeks, or better yet a couple of months. It’s time to give those overworked muscles a break and focus on balancing out your body.
Focus on getting stronger and more powerful. When you build up your strength and become more powerful you are harder to push off the puck, harder to battle in the corners, you can skate faster, and your shot will improve.
Spend some time building up your aerobic base. Having a strong aerobic base will give you the ability to work harder for longer, and recover quicker between intervals (for example recovering between shifts of a game). This foundation will be crucial once it is time to start working on anaerobic sprint work.
If you want to get on the ice during the first few months of the off-season, bring down the intensity and focus on skill work. Work on your passing, shooting, and skating but remember these ice times should be focused on improving skills and not used as conditioning sessions. Leave the conditioning work for the gym.
As the new season approaches shift the focus back to hockey and game like situations. The focus of conditioning sessions should shift from aerobic work to anaerobic sprint work. Sprinting intervals will feel much more like a game (or harder). Get back on the ice, bring up the intensity, and get your skills up to game speed.
*This is just an overview of a general off-season training plan. For the best results, and to see the most improvement a detailed program should be designed specifically for each player. The off season is an athletes opportunity to put in the work and get ahead of the pack – use it.
