The Next Generation HKY training facility is quickly becoming a one stop shop for players who are looking to get to that next level. Through the use of all the resources at our disposal, this camp will cover all aspects of a player’s game over and be like nothing ever offered in Ottawa before.



Treadmill—Efficient, Explosive Skating

It is no secret that a player’s ability to skate plays a large role in determining how effective of a player they are. The ability to win foot races leads to more puck possessions and therefore more opportunities and success for both players and teams. The addition of the treadmill now allows us to isolate and correct every element of the player’s stride—while the TV and four cameras/angles allow for instant feedback for each player. This allows players to relate the coach’s teachings points to what they can visually see themselves doing on the TV. Increasing DPS (Distance per stride), stride extension, stride recovery, arm swing, foot speed and edgework are all elements that will be covered in the treadmill session each day.

On-Ice—Puck Confidence

With the treadmill allowing us to focus on the players skating—the on-ice portion of the camp will focus primarily on puck skills. Handling the puck in tight, handling the puck at high speeds, passing, shooting, shot selection and movement with the puck are just some of the areas this camp will cover. For further information on some of our puck based teaching focuses please visit the Puck Confidence page located on our website.


Off-Ice--Hockey Specific Workouts

The camp will also have hockey specific off-ice training. The hour will focus on isolating hockey specific muscles and energy systems—zeroing in on quick twitch muscle fiber to maximize explosive power while training the large muscle groups to work efficiently, generating effective power and limiting muscle fatigue. We will also incorporate the use of slide boards to reinforce some of the stride techniques being worked on, on the treadmill.


Small Area Games

The game of hockey is a sequence quick decisions, puck movements and small area battles. The studio ice pad at CHDC provides the ideal environment for these elements. Keeping in mind the skills taught within the development hour—players will take part in a series of small area games. This will allow for the opportunity to apply the skills learned in an active, fast paced and FUN atmosphere!
