Field Hockey Alberta Summer High Performance Program
We are excited to offer our high performance athletes a fall/winter indoor program! This 20-21 week program will be comprised of on field training, tactics, and a fitness plan. The program is part of a pathway that will give athletes the opportunity to work towards improving their skillsets and game play.
The fitness plan will focus on injury prevention, cardiovascular endurance and preparing athletes to return to field hockey. The plan will include workouts prior to on field training to aid athletes in their transition back into high performance sport. Fitness will continue for the duration of the program to increase athletic performance and endurance.
On Field Training:
Training sessions will begin with the reintroduction basic skills. Basic skill practice will be emphasized through the duration of the program to strengthen hockey fundamentals that are required for more advanced drills. Sessions will also include dynamic drills involving passing, elimination, tackling, channeling, and shooting on goal. Coaches will also cover set plays including penalty corners. Team tactics such as break outs, midfield movement and presses will be the final component of the on field sessions.
We would love to see as many athletes as possible come out and take part in the selections. It is a great way to improve your overall field hockey game!
