New Game. New Training!
With the new rules emphasis entrenched in Hockey, Tec Tac Hockey has adjusted our programming to reflect the Technical and Tactical requirements of today’s hockey player. Over the past few summers we have adjusted our programming to grow with the way hockey is being played in today’s game. Our Technical Director, Chuck Wight has revised our programming to reflect what is needed in today’s game and has used his experience in Canadian and European hockey to develop this sport specific training.
There will be a continued emphasis on motor learning and muscle memory in order to establish the optimal execution of technical skills. What we have done is increased our on-ice and off-ice Speed, Agility and Quickness (SAQ) training to align it with the demands of today’s higher paced game. The SAQ training will also be incorporated into our puck control programming and we will deliver game concept drills that will also involve more emphasis on this part of the game. We will continue to offer our world-class power skating instruction while increasing the amount of SAQ training.
These adjustments in our programming have been done in all of our programs in order to better develop today’s hockey player. For more information, keep reading this page or feel free to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any specific questions about our programs.
