Speed kills in hockey and is the backbone of every skilled player. Outskate everyone on the ice by building the dramatic strength and power necessary for first-step quickness, high top-end speed, and amazing agility.
Nothing is as dangerous as a quick, accurate shot on net. Become that player who can get into position faster and fire the shot off before your opponent even knows what hit them. Be that one guy on the ice who can drive to the net to follow up that shot and, if necessary, tip in the rebound.
Become that rock solid player who never loses another one-on-one battle, competes for every puck and hits harder than anyone else. In short, dominate on the ice!
Play hard through the 3rd period and into OT without wearing down. Your speed and skill will shine as you power through games and play quality minutes without getting tired.
