OUR FLAME IGNITE is an ice hockey training program for the next generation of players. We believe in preparing wisely. We believe in competing at the highest level. Our players launch from IGNITE physically and mentally prepared for the next level in their game.
OVERVIEW The JUNIOR IGNITE Summer Training program includes: • 16 on-ice Sessions • 16 off-ice strength and conditioning sessions • 4 Hot Yoga classes – Private group at Sumits Yoga • 4 performance-based mental skills seminars • 4-week progressive off-ice shooting course • Parent workshop on how to support your child in the next level of hockey • Fun Fridays – After training players hit the driving range, play floor ball and other activities • Ongoing, open dialogue between players, parents and the IGNITE coaching team
OVERVIEW COMPONENTS OF THE IGNITE PROGRAM ON-ICE SKILLS TRAINING Our goal is to promote the development of dominant play- ers with matured on-ice awareness. Players will further de- velop all of the foundational on-ice movements, as well as work on their focus and reactions during the game. Players will leave the program with improved stride mechanics and skating efficiency, a more explosive first step, increased maximum-speed, improved shooting mechanics, and bet- ter on-ice positioning and game situational understanding. STRENGTH & CONDITIONING Our players are taught how to prepare, train, and recover like a professional. Training will focus on creating dynamic, explosive and powerful hockey players. Players will leave the program with upgraded training habits by prioritiz- ing the mechanics of form, posture, and muscle function, pre-training and pre-game warmup routines, improvement on weak side strength to enhance muscle equilibrium, strategies for improved recovery training to shorten time off the ice during season, and personal consultation for in-season workout plans to strengthen on-ice performance and reduce risk of injury. NUTRITION Players and parents will learn how professional athletes eat, hydrate, and use supplements, build sleep into their daily training regimens, and make lifestyle choices that align with their short and long term goals in hockey. MENTAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT Our players are challenged to explore the mental aspect of performance in hockey – on and off the ice. As a former NHL player, I know that mental skills training is the most crucial, and often the most ignored, component of success. Through experiential personal development workshops, our players will discover what makes them great and they will learn how to harness that power. Players will learn what it means to be a professional and build the resilience re- quired to make it to the next level, the triggers that set off anxiety and how to re-set their inner composure, strategies to handle difficult feedback from coaches and manage- ment, and skills for game-time preparation and focus.
HOW WE LIGHT THE FIRE We know that the ideal training program for player is an integrated program where on-ice practice, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and mental skills training are designed in connection with one another for the explosion of growth within the player. Each component of the IGNITE program is built upon four key cornerstones. These cornerstones are what we believe are the foundational ingredients for success in hockey as a player takes his game to the next level. INTELLIGENCE POWER AWARENESS FOCUS
