How well do you think your shot would improve if you were to take 2500 shots over a 5-week period?
Think it can’t be done, think again. Shooting one hundred pucks a day, five days a week for five weeks will help you develop your shooting & scoring skills at home. This program reinforces the concepts introduced by Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development [LTPD] which sets out a development progression or pathway for hockey players.
There’s evidence to show that daily micro-practice is effective and often superior to longer practice sessions once or twice a week. When you practice a little each day, skills don’t erode. In fact, they consolidate. It’s like a bank account earning compound interest: a virtuous spiral where skill accrues quickly.
“This is a great program because it’s simple, it gives players the opportunity to develop their skills and its fun!” said former LMH President, Randy Bauman. Coach’s raved about the improvement following the program therefore we’ve put the program together for the 3rd year in a row.
Coach: don’t miss the chance to assign as homework and offer your own internal competition....
Excerpt from OHF website 2013:
“This is a really great initiative…my son Mitch is in the third week and he has already seen significant results…three goals in his past two games and all on great wrist shots! He is more motivated than ever now…I have to keep him from going too crazy down stairs! Thx again and keep up the great work within the OMHA.” – Hockey Parent
"I can see the improvement in my son’s shot already, so does his coach. He is on week 4 and determined to complete the program. Great idea by OMHA to motivate kids to work on their skill improvement.” – Hockey Parent
The Goal: Increase shot speed, quickness and accuracy
The Plan: Shoot 2500 pucks in 5 weeks. That’s 100 shots a day / 5 days a week for 5 weeks!
