52-Week Hockey Training

This book is part of a series presented by Human Kinetics Publishers. The goal was to provide training specific to each sport and have programs laid out over the entire 365 days of the year. We were asked to write the hockey version.

Gail Reynolds and I wrote 52-Week Hockey Training based on over thirty plus years each of experience in sports training. Gail has an impressive exercise physiology background and has trained athletes and teams in various sports that competed at all levels from amateur, university, professional and wheelchair. As with all the books we have co-authored, Gail is the brains behind the project.

With 52-Week Hockey Training you will be able to design:

  • Yearly training plans
  • Monthly practice and game sessions
  • Weekly training plans
  • Daily practice plans
  • Individual team and player training programs
  • Specific programs to meet your specific needs and concerns

Here are a couple of quotes from professionals who have used 52-Week Hockey Training:

“This is a great reference for helping both a player and a coach design an effective fitness program that meets the specific demands of playing hockey.”

Dave King- former NHL head coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets, Calgary Flames and also Canada’s National team head coach.

“Half the battle of conditioning is staying motivated, especially in the off-season. Don and Gail’s program will help you keep your focus and meet your conditioning goals all year long!”
