Barb Aidelbaum’s GAME PERFORMANCE TECHNICAL HOCKEY SKATING PROGRAM has been developed over 4 decades of teaching hockey players. Players 16 years and older that are fully committed to a strength and conditioning program are considered for the On-ice Technical program.
There are no 2 players or bodies alike so every High Performance athlete requires a custom program. Very small training groups make this possible for individual feedback. Groups are formed based on the players’ level of play the previous season: CJHL, CHL, U Sports, NCAA or Pro.
NHL technical skating programs are designed after consultations with the Strength and Conditioning coach, the physiologist, in-season team coaches, skills coaches, the physiotherapist, mental performance coach and any other experts on the Player’s development team. The programs are carefully and fully integrated for the best results.
