STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING
CrossIce Developments is leading the way in high end off-ice training programs- offering numerous options for players to maximize their training. This is led by Strength/Conditioning Coach, and Jr A Scout JASON PETRIE, who coordinates CrossIce’s off-ice training programs in the Central Alberta Region. Jason is currently also the High School “Sports Performance” Teacher in Lacombe- and has a wealth of knowledge surrounding body mechanics, human movement, strength alignment/development, proper training phases for hockey, injury prevention and recovery, and so much more. Most importantly, from working in elite hockey for nearly 25 years- he knows how crucial proper training and diet programs are, for players to reach their maximum potential on the ice. Due to our recent partnership with SNAP Fitness in Lacombe, we have a state of the art, 7000 square foot facility with a plethora of fitness resources, that will contribute to your regular raining regime.
It is no secret that off ice training is a massive part of today’s game, and the work involved to improve 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 extremely important, but what is more important is tailoring the program to help you as a player improve what you need to, so it translates directly on to the ice. Not all players require the same workout program. We are proud to say that we watch you on the ice before we begin training in the gym.
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 players based on our initial consultation, and knowing detailed information about you both as a hockey player and as a 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.
We take the following into consideration when developing a players routine:
- Body Type
- Past Injuries
- Movement Patterns
- Skating Habits
- Style of Play
Players do not become better skaters by skating over and over again reinforcing poor habits. A large part of skating is in the gym. A strength foundation, power, speed, and flexibility are all vital to a smooth and efficient skater.
Our training directly translates into your game as long as you are fully bought in.
CrossIce will set you up with a training and diet program to help you become the player you want to be. But be prepared to work. Contact us to get started!
