Another season is coming to an end and I would like to thank all the volunteer coaches, parents, players and sponsors. Without you we wouldn’t be able to have the hockey program we do for our kids. It is also time to decide what you are going to do in the off-season. There are a lot of choices out there; hockey schools, private lessons, off ice training, kinetics, synthetic ice training & the skating treadmill.
I can highly recommend all of the above. However, I don’t feel you need to go all over the country to 15 different hockey camps. Utilize your local camps, clinics and hockey training centers. If you are looking at weight training or plyometric use a certified trainer. Your skills will only improve with extra time and effort in the off-season. Our program will not take the next step with just your scheduled practice time during the year.
If you are doing another summer sport that is great but make sure you make time each week for hockey training. Maysa Arena will have public skating and open hockey throughout the summer. Public skating is a great place to work on your skating skills. Things you can do in your own driveway include, shooting pucks, working with a stickhandling ball, passing a tennis ball against the wall with your parent’s permission. Repetition is the best way to improve your skills. Each of the past 9 years I have encouraged all the above things for you to do in the off-season.
Minot Hockey Boosters and Duffy’s Hockey & Sports will have the Summer Hockey Challenge. Any player in our program is eligible to compete. We are asking you to stickhandle so many minutes and shoot so many pucks from May 1st to September 10th. If you complete the summer hockey challenge your name will be put into a drawing at the Pancake breakfast for a prize. You can pick up your Summer Hockey Challenge form in the MHB Office or print them off the website. If you have any questions about what your hockey player should be doing during the off-season, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Have a great summer,
Jarrod A. Olson
MHB Program Director
