STRENGTH/CONDITIONING

CrossIce Developments is leading the way in facilitating & evolving elite off-ice training programs for players to get as much out of their training regimes as possible. This is led by Chance Szott himself, as well as Strength/Conditioning Coach, Jason Petrie. Both Chance and Jason have a plethora of knowledge surrounding human movement, body mechanics, athletic development, strength alignment/training, proper training phases for hockey, injury prevention/recovery, and so much more. Most importantly, with a near combined over 30 years of hockey operations experience, they know how vital proper training programs are for players to reach their maximum potential on the ice. Your training needs to match the way you want to play. Due to our partnership with SNAP Fitness in Lacombe, we have a state of the art, 7000 square foot facility with endless fitness resources, right at our fingertips, that will contribute to your regular training routine. We also offer strength/conditioning based out of Blackfalds and Bashaw.

It is no secret that the work involved to improve nowadays as a hockey player, is not just on the ice. It is not a matter of if you are training anymore, it is a matter of how much harder and more effective you are training than your competition. Hockey-specific work outs are important, but an honest, tailored program for you is what truly separates. Not all players require the same workout program.

Correcting posture and muscle imbalances is paramount to begin so the foundation is set and the body is aligned. After that, we develop a tailored program for our clients based on our initial consultation, and knowing detailed information about you as a hockey player, and/or person. We require a lot of details, but we also take your training very seriously and know how crucial the small time frame you get in the gym really is. Having a trainer with hockey operations knowledge and game specific insight, has tremendous value in the gym for hockey players.

We take the following into consideration when developing a players routine:

    • Age
    • Size
    • Body Type
    • Genetics
    • Position 
    • Past Injuries
    • Movement Patterns
      • Skating Habits 
      • Style of Play 

Hockey players do not become better skaters by skating over and over again reinforcing poor habits. Believe it or not, the best way to improve your skating is effective off-ice training, recruiting proper motor units and translatable motor patterns to establish habits and muscle memory. A strength foundation, power, speed, and flexibility are all vital to a smooth and efficient skater.
