Summer Hockey Training


Summer is the time for relaxation and fun. It is also the time to "sharpen the ax" for those athletes seeking to improve their skill and athleticism. Trois' summer hockey program is designed to be fun and age-appropriate. The program is built around five stages to maximize diversity in training applications to enhance their hockey development while avoiding hockey burnout (through standard summer practices and games). Our program is designed around weekly themes that are reinforced in each stage through a progressive programming model.

The program begins the week of June 5th and runs through August 4th. We do not train around the Fourth of July (No Training July 3 - 7th) We resume training July 10th.  There have been a few modifications to the Friday ice times at St Cloud MAC, please review the times below.

Jerseys and t-shirts will be distributed during the first two weeks of training. 

Athletes should bring full hockey gear and wear athletic shoes.  Required gear for the synthetic rink are skates, gloves, elbow pads, shin guards and helmet.  Stick handling and shooting will require gloves and hockey stick. Comfortable athletic wear is suggested for plyometric exercises and turf agility & conditioning work.

Important items for drop off and pick up:

  • Athletes should get dropped off no more than 10 minutes prior to their session start time.  As they arrive, we will be checking them in and beginning warm up exercises.
  • Athletes should be picked up within 10 minutes of session ending time.
  • Any athletes exhibiting signs of illness should stay home.

Stage One - Treadmill Training

The first is treadmill training for repetition of proper skating mechanics. Training good biomechanics under fatigue allows the athlete to hold form late in games and over a long season.

Stage Two - Strength & Conditioning

The second stage is a structured strength, conditioning and speed training. Strength training teaches an athlete how to generate force into the ice, speed training teaches top velocity and improves acceleration and deceleration. Core training is the basis for the program and is age appropriate.

Stage Three - Skill Development

This stage develops the foundational skills important to the success of each hockey player. Skills (skating, passing, shooting) are enhanced through repetition of properly executed drills on Trois' synthetic ice surface.

Stage Four - Agility Training

The focus of this stage is speed, agility and coordination. Using proper techniques and mechanics during are vital to reduce injury and reinforce quality movement patterns. Agility training sharpens reaction, decision making and change of direction.

Stage Five - On-Ice Training

The final stage, on-ice training, is an accumulation of the prior four stages and is used to solidify skills and mechanics. The on-ice stage will improve edges, increase force transfer into the ice and increase reactive speed development.

Stick Handling Challenge

A bonus stage, stick handling challenge, is available to all participants. The challenge consists of weekly drills for our athletes to complete at home or before/after training at Trois (instruction provided). Our self-paced stick handling course is set-up at the facility for our athletes to use.
