LTAD for Ice Hockey?


Does that mean that you must go an play Baseball (a sport we often portray as a rather "sitting-still activity for half the team").
Yes it could, since in the principles of Long Term Athletic Development say that kids should play many different sports to improve many basic functions and also to prevent them from injuries down the road...

Now let's focus on this post real content and it is called:
HOCKEY JAM SESSIONS!

Ok, as we talked to Mr. Faez Kanji, Vancouver, the other week and as we discussed different "Floorball activities for younger Hockey players he said something very interesting... "The feeling of the experience or the atmosphere you design for a kids group - maybe even more important than the technical skill you try to develop. "
We loved it here... Since it makes fully sense to us.

Here is the very latest from Vancouver, and how they tie Young Stars together with all from Floorball to Ice Hockey.
They call it - "CAN YOU FEEL IT?"
Our question is now... - "Can you feel it too?"



So you do Youth Hockey and you see this and can now connect how Floorball fits into all this then - well lets say that we welcome you to a new brave world? LTAD or Not, but for sure aimed at Hockey Kids...

OOps.. One thing more - you want to know more about Hockey Jam sessions for Kids?
Try this, "Dear Brutu" ;-D

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
