Players will quickly notice that the repetition is the key to unlocking skill improvement.
Find a dedicated area in the driveway or basement that gives you enough room to move around and shoot pucks. A flat surface is important for puck handling and for safe movement. Remove any potential hazards or fragile items for safety. Many household items can also serve as markings or obstacles that are needed for some of the drills. Make sure whatever space you are using won’t leave any unwanted markings on the ground or walls from a puck or stick.
Players shouldn’t rush through the drills – they should be are designed to be done with meaningful action. Don’t just do each day’s requirements to get it over with. Make sure that you are doing each drill correctly by following the tutorials. Mastering the technique will help improve your skills and make the time spent on the challenges worth it.
The OMHA Hockey Academy gives everything you need (aside from the equipment) for at-home hockey training. As long as you have an area to practice, a stick, puck and net you are ready to participate. Players can take on this responsibility to put in the time to practice. Those time management skills you’ve learned at the rink help to create a daily and weekly practice plan to ensure you’re being the most effective in your reps. Try to find a consistent time in your day that will be dedicated to completing the drills.
