The Four Ps to Hockey Success

Hockey training drills

1. Purpose 

Every day needs a simple objective and it's important to make small gains every 24 hours. Simply going through the motions is not going to help you achieve your goals and take your game to the next level. Purposeful training will give you the ability to perform at your best during games. The next time you are working on your shooting, passing or stickhandling, do so with intent and purpose and watch your skill level soar!  

2. Proficiency 

The skill level of hockey players has never been greater. There are so many amazing videos on YouTube of talented players from around the world doing incredible things with a stick and puck. 

If you’re not at your desired skill level it's up to you to develop top-end skills. Players with a high skill proficiency are considered a small group and it takes a lot of training to get a seat at that table. The question is, how bad do you want it?

3. Positive 

There will be many different situations that will arise during the course of a season and the question is, how will you react to them? A tough loss or bad practice is bound to happen, as is a scoring drought or an unfortunate injury.  Negative thinking will only lead to more negativity. Maintaining a positive approach however is the key to success. 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. If you stay positive good things will happen!
4. Process
Skill development is a marathon, not a sprint.  Too often, players don’t have the patience to accept the process of acquiring skills. Trying to rush the process by, for example, moving up a level one season, only to realize a few years later that they are on a vastly different trajectory than they had planned. Ultimately, when their career is over, most would agree that they wished they wouldn’t have rushed it.
