During the 2018-2019 Season MHC piloted a formal Off-Ice Conditioning Program with selected teams. Feedback from Coaches, Players and Parents was very positive across the board.
Springboarding off this success into the 2019-2020 Season we will be incorporating formal Off-Ice Conditioning programs for all MHC Youth and Girls Travel teams at the Squirt/10U, Peewee/12U, Bantam/14U, Girls 16U and 19U levels!
Our program will be administered by Coach Christian Valvano and his HockeyGainz team. It will consist of weekly age-appropriate strength and agility sessions and will be customized by age and team level.
We will try as best we can to schedule each team's off-ice session on the same night as their on-ice practice. Session length (30 to 45 minutes) and overall length of program (number of weeks) will vary by team.
The cost of the Off-Ice Conditioning program has already been factored into our 2019-2020 Season fees so there will be no additional cost.
Looking forward to a great 2019-2020 Season! See you at Tryouts!
