For the second year in a row, Elite Performance Academy has been selected to train all hockey players participating in the CBC Hockey Nation tour stop in Ottawa.
Every year, a team of coaches and trainers travel coast to coast to provide Canadian communities with a hockey experience they will never forget. Coaches, parents and kids alike receive a rare opportunity to take part in a series of hockey clinics, guided by some of the game’s most seasoned coaches and players. Afterwards, they are run through a dry-land training session with the some of the top Strength & Conditioning professionals in each city. Coach Woodcock and Coach Ruiz will be coaching approximately 500 of Ottawa's top young hockey stars, giving them a glimpse into the type of Elite training sessions that drives our athletes to success.
In addition, Coach Woodcock will be one of the featured speakers at Friday evenings Coaches Symposium. Coach Woodcock will be presenting on “Elite Performance Training: Philosophies for Developing Young Athletes”, and will be speaking alongside former Canadian Olympian Ron Davidson and legendary former NHL Coach Mike Keenan.
Stayed tuned here for the post-event wrap up, including pictures, sample exercises used during training, and key concepts from the Coaches Symposium.
