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.
