Coach Benefits

Is your free time away from the rink valuable? Are you looking for new ways to ramp up the skill development of your players? Develop your players and free up your time with Agility Hockey Systems!

As coaches, we want the best for our players. To give our hockey players the best long-term chance to succeed, skill development should be our top priority, especially during the developmental years.

Hockey is a game of short races and battles.

Hockey Agility

We use the term “Hockey Agility” to describe:

  • Lateral Quickness
  • Stops and Starts
  • Edgework
  • Passing & Shooting
  • Puckhandling in tight spaces
  • Battle & Compete
  • Puck Protection
  • Playing in Traffic

The balance between player development and team development can be tricky.

But if we truly believe that skill development is important, it makes sense to be as efficient as possible with our time spent on “Hockey Agility”. This not only accelerates our players’ development, but it allows for more time to work on other team needs (ie. systems, positioning, team concepts).

At the older ages, it makes sense to combine resources and give our players more opportunities for repetition, and thus development. We’ve had 48 skaters, 8 goalies, and 10 coaches on the ice at the Bantam level, with players divided into groups of like-skilled players, rotating through 8 different skill development and competition stations. It’s total chaos… but it’s awesome! And the players LOVE IT!

Think of it from the players’ perspective. They get quality repetitions with lots of variety, and they are exposed to 8 (or more) different sets of eyes to help them improve. There’s no wasted time, it’s high energy, and they get a ton out of it.

This tool saves you time and helps your players improve! What’s not to like about that?!
