Coach Nielsen's Ice Hockey Drills

Conditioning Videos Ready

I worked on the conditioning video series that a few YouTube followers asked for and finally posted it last night. Below you can access each of the videos. This program is what I use for my varsity team as well as my midget 16AA team. We work three days a week for 60 to 75 minutes and we started two months before our first game. There are many additional conditioning exercises you can add to the program, but I found over the years that this program works best for me to get the athletes in excellent condition before the season starts. We continue the program as long as we can outdoors and then scale back when it gets too cold and move indoors.

I hope this helps you work with your players and gives you a good foundation to start a conditioning program of your own. Feel free to add any or all of these drills to your program, and remember to give the athletes time to rest and hydrate between sections of the workout.

Thanks for following!
