Hockey Sport Science – “How Technology WILL Change How We Develop Skating”
This talk explores key factors of elite skating performance such as Conor McDavid’s amazing acceleration, Carl Hagelin’s top speed, and Sidney Crosby’s on edge strength and the technology used to test these qualities. Learn how sport science is transforming the ways we train athletes, by providing real time metrics such as velocity, leg power symmetry, force, acceleration, joint load and how the body is moving in the training environment and on the ice via Force Plate Technology, Radar, Linear Position Transducers, and much, much more. Also learn, how elite teams such as the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Toronto Maple Leafs are monitoring athletes’ fatigue, neuromuscular readiness, and recovery and regeneration all through human biomechanics.
“The Hooper Questionnaire” the simple way to monitor the wellness of your athletes
Key positions of elite skaters and a basic evaluation method any coach can use and a program to develop those qualities.
Injury Prevention: The Hockey Triad
The Law of Performance dictates that to perform you must be able to play. Unfortunately, over 70% of elite hockey players have permanent structural changes to their hips that lead to pain and other injuries in the hip, groin, and low back – such as hip flexor and hip adductor strains, lower abdominal strains, and low back pain. We call this the Hockey Triad. In many cases these require surgery, such as in
This does not have to be the case. With early risk factor assessment and injury prevention strategies; that include daily hip mobility routines, single leg control, and physical literacy development, we can reduce the occurrence and symptoms associated with the Hockey Triad. Learn how.
