Olympic Gold Medalist, Jocelyne Larocque, is the coordinator of STOKE Hockey Programming. With a variety of programs for hockey players throughout the year STOKE has the tools to bring your game to a new level!
Our coaches posses a great mix of experience playing hockey at the CIS, NCAA, National, International, and Olympic level. At STOKE Strength and Conditioning we understand the work ethic it takes to play at a higher level and we understand the science behind proper training.
Our hockey services focus on individual development. On-ice we focus on developing and refining individual skills including: puck control, skating, passing, shooting, balance, and agility. Off-ice Strength and Conditioning sessions focus on teaching proper movement mechanics, increasing strength, power and endurance.
Entering my high school years, I knew I wanted to play hockey at the university level, but was unsure of exactly what it took to get there. Being involved in the College Prep program was a large stepping-stone for me. The off-ice training showed us what it took to be at the highest level possible for college hockey, as well as the on ice instruction by many experienced female hockey players including Canadian Olympian Jocelyne Larocque. I really do think College Prep was a great start in my journey to play Division 1 hockey at Bemidji State University.

I’d like to take this opportunity to add how pleased we are with your program. You, Jocelyne and Amy have great chemistry with the girls which really helps support the training and learning process. Your experience and professionalism is greatly respected by not only the girls, but the parents/staff as well. My only disappointment is that your program wasn’t available sooner! My goal for the team next year is to get to provincials, and I plan for Stoke Strength to be a big part of that!

I was fortunate enough to be a part of the College Prep U 18 summer program. This program taught me important skills both on and off the ice, and ultimately helped me get to where I am today playing for the Manitoba Bisons. Having the privilege to be trained and coached by Jocelyne Larocque, a member of the Women’s Olympic Hockey Team, is an experience I will cherish forever and never forget and I will be forever inspired and driven by the outstanding role model I met

College Prep was a great way to spend the summer. I had the opportunity to practice the sport I loved and developed my skills with excellent instructors. I went into the camp coming back from an injury and I was scared to return to the ice and get re-injured. However, the coaches were very supportive and helped me get the confidence I needed to improve my hockey skills and get back on the ice.
I would much rather be on then ice than doing off ice training but with College Prep I really enjoyed the training. The coaches were very accommodating and I did modified workouts because I was still not 100% healed from my injury. I built up a lot of strength from that summer with College Prep and now that I am playing in University I understand how important the strength component really is to be competitive in hockey.
