How well do you think your shot would improve if you were to take 5000 shots over a 10-week period?
Think it can’t be done, think again. Shooting one hundred pucks a day, five days a week for ten weeks will help you develop your shooting & scoring skills at home. This program reinforces the concepts introduced by Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development [LTPD] which sets out a development progression or pathway for hockey players.
There’s evidence to show that daily micropractices are effective and often superior to longer practice sessions once or twice a week. When you practice a little each day, skills don’t erode. In fact, they consolidate. It’s like a bank account earning compound interest: a virtuous spiral where skill accrues quickly.
“This is a great program because it’s simple, it gives players the opportunity to take ownership of their own skill development and its fun!” said OMHA Director, Development Programs, Ian Taylor. “It is a simple way to educate players, coaches, and parents on the LTPD model in a fun and easy way. “
The Goal: Increase shot speed, quickness and accuracy
The Plan: Shoot 5000 pucks in 10 weeks. That’s 100 shots a day / 5 days a week for 10 weeks!
