The Fartlek -  A Hockey Dryland & Off-Ice Training Workout

Fartlek is Swedish for "Speed Play". This dryland training off-ice workout, specifically for hockey players, if committed to once a week throughout the summer (12 weeks) will translate to an increase in speed, more explosiveness, and more endurance.

1-3-1 Power Play Options

The 1-3-1 power play formation has become the go to power play system for most high level teams.  Just about every NHL team is using it so there must be a reason.  Power play systems like the overload, umbrella, set pick plays, etc... can be effective until the other team knows how to play against them.  The 1-3-1 formation allows teams a myriad of options and allows teams to get into other formations very quickly, adding an element of surprise and confusion to the penalty killers.

Online Tools for Youth Hockey Coaches

The availability of free online resources for hockey coaches has become somewhat overwhelming in the past few years.  The amount of knowledge and effort for which anyone can post drill diagrams or publish videos has become so easy that the internet is flooded with more content than any coach could dream of using.  Ice Hockey Systems alone has over 500 animated hockey drills and systems which is more than most coaches will ever use.  Therefore Ice Hockey Systems Inc. has put a massive amount of effort in developing online tools to help coaches find, organize, and share this content.

Drill lists help you manage hockey drills you like

We have over 550 hockey drills and drill lists provide an easy way for our members to organize them in their own way.  As you search and find drills that you like you can simply save the drill to any drill list with the click of the button.  It allows you to organize the drills so that you can find them easily when you want to share them with your team or save them to a practice.

How to create a hockey practice plan using our tools

This tutorial shows you how to create a hockey practice plan using the tools in your account. Once you have saved a practice you can save a drill, system, or exercise into the practice while viewing that piece of content with a click of a button.  The practice can then be shared with your players and coaches when you have enabled the team access feature.

Sharing practice plans with your team is a helpful way to communicate

The first step is to create team access.  Every membership comes with the ability to create a team access account.  Once you have enabled team access you will see a button at the top of the page when viewing practices, drills, and systems.  When you toggle the button on then the practice will be visible within the team access account.  You can toggle the sharing of content on and off by simply clicking the "Share with Team" button.
