Strength and Conditioning Program

The King’s-Edgehill hockey program implements a year-round team strength and conditioning program that physically prepares each individual player for the upcoming season and the next level of competitive hockey. The primary goal of this program is injury reduction, making sure that each athlete is prepared to physically withstand the stresses of playing competitive ice hockey.

A comprehensive team evaluation is administered multiple times throughout the school year and assesses strengths and weakness in the following areas:
 
  • Flexibility
  • Explosive strength
  • Muscular endurance
  • Cardio-respiratory fitness
  • Injury precursors (muscular imbalances)
 
The program design is exclusive to the KES hockey program and incorporates every facet of athletic based training:
 
  • Strength
  • Agility
  • Speed development
  • Flexibility
  • Conditioning
  • Plyometrics
 
In addition to the strength and conditioning training, the team receives sports nutrition guidelines where they will learn the basics of eating to perform and how to make healthy and smart food choices on the road and during their athletic career. Players with more specific nutritional needs can meet with the strength and conditioning coach to develop an eating program suited to their personal goals or needs. Eating plans that address a medical condition will require a medical referral and be handled through the school nurse and doctor.
 
DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
 
Young athletes (grades 7-9) will participate in a strength and conditioning program designed to introduce strength training fundamentals and prepare them for more advanced training in the years to come. Focus on the developmental program will be based on age appropriate strength training techniques and will involve (but are not limited to) uses of body weight, free weights and nautilus machines to learn and establish a solid strength foundation.

In addition to strength, the athletes of the development program will participate in speed development programming that will focus on motor skill development, running technique, and muscular coordination.
           
All team training and evaluations are scheduled as to not interfere with other athletic and academic commitments and each session is implemented and supervised by a certified and experienced strength and conditioning coach
