The Four Ps to Hockey Success

Hockey training drills

The majority of my day is spent creating things. It might be a new drill, product idea, or impactful blog articles. My objective is to help hockey players become better and help them play the game for as long as they can. If you have lofty goals, you might be interested in my 4 Ps to Hockey Success. These are the things that are 100% in your control. Let’s get started.

1. Purpose 

Every day needs a simple objective… to make small gains every 24 hours. Just going through the motions is unacceptable and will never be tolerated. Purposeful training will give you the ability to perform at your best during games.

2. Proficiency 

Hockey is a game that’s getting more skilled by the day. Go on YouTube and you will see amazing videos of players from around the world doing incredible things with a stick and puck.

You know what the best player’s skill levels are. If you’re not at that level, then you need to find a way to get some extra development, either on your own or from a specialist. Players with a high skill-proficiency level are considered a small group. It takes a lot of training to get a seat at that table.

3. Positive 

All kinds of things can happen to players to draw them into a pool of negativity. A tough loss or bad practice is bound to happen over the course of a season. What will your thoughts be if you’re on a 10-game scoring drought or you have an unfortunate injury?
Negative thinking will only get you more negativity. A more positive approach is what I recommend. If you make a mistake, don’t get mad, figure out why the mistake happened, identify the alternative, then prepare for your next shift in an excited state of mind.

4. Process

Too often, players don’t have the patience to accept the process of acquiring skills. They try to rush the process, maybe moving up a level, only to find out a few years later that they may be on a different trajectory than they had planned. When their career is over, most, if not all, would say that they wished they wouldn’t have rushed it.
