Uncomfortable Training Tips by Pro Ambitions

  • Try stickhandling with two pucks on the ice, or two stickhandling balls in the garage or basement
  • Juggling both

Juggling boosts brain development. Research indicates that learning to juggle accelerates the growth of neural connections related to memory, focus, movement, and vision. .

Juggling builds hand-eye coordination in ways that improve reaction time, reflexes, spatial awareness, strategic thinking, and concentration.”

  • Practice stickhandling with loose wrists and cradling with speed without looking at the pucks or stickhandling balls
  • Embrace the chaos of juggling with speed
  • At the Battle Camp we fire in a second puck as soon as the first battle is won or lost, training kids to go right back in for THE REBOUND
  • Practice receiving the puck in your skates with your Mr. Assist training tool
  • A good player never receives a bad pass, they make it work
  • Using your skates to catch the puck is a skill
  • 3D touches, practice juggling a puck up and down on your stick and batting it out of the air
  • Practice your backhand shot, A LOT,  goalies hate backhand shots
  • Hundreds of reps a day using your backhand with your Mr. Assist training tool which will bounce back into your feet or skates uncomfortably, teaching you how to use your skates in passing, this is a good thing
  • These uncomfortable unorthodox training concepts will separate you from the pack
  • Try not to make it easy on yourself when training at home
