2 Mission: Get more American kids to play, love and excel in hockey. 2

3 What is LTAD? Long Term Athlete Development Integrates training, competition and recovery programming with relation to biological development and maturation Participant/athlete centered, coach driven, and parents, officials, administration, sport medicine & sport science supported Chronological age dominates training rather than biological age. Windows of trainibility: "critical" or "sensitive periods of accelerated adaptation to training 3

4 Starting point: What do Sophie and Angela have in common? 4

5 They both love to play. 5

6 6

7 ADM - I AM POTENTIAL Age Appropriate Programming Illustrates Hockey s Role In Overall Child Development Places Emphasis On The Child, Not Just The Hockey Player Inviting And Friendly For Retention/Acquisition 7

8 The Key Factors Influencing LTAD TEN YEAR RULE It Takes 10 Years Of Extensive Practice To Excel In Anything! 10 Year Or 10,000 Hour Rule FUNdamentals A, B, C, Speed Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) Air, Land, Water, Ice/Snow Fundamental Sports Skills (FSS) Throwing, Striking, Kicking FMS + FSS = Physical Literacy 8

9 The Key Factors Influencing LTAD Specialization Early vs. Late Specialization Late specialization athletes have included: Angela Ruggerio, Jenny Potter and Haley Wickenheiser Reduced time spent on broad based physical literacy Peak at 16 Increased injuries Early burnout, early retirement 9

10 Currently, we first try to make a player and then we want to make an athlete out of the player! Reverse the Procedure We have to make an athlete first and then make a player out of the athlete! 10

11 WHAT IS LTAD? 8 STAGES of LTAD (Ice Hockey) Active Start Stage - FUNdamental movement skills FUNdamental Stage - Developing ABC s Active Start 0-6 FUNdamentals 6 and Under Mites 8 and Under Mites Learning to Train 10 and Under Squirt 12 and Under Peewee Learning to Train Training to Train Learn to Compete Training to Compete Training to Win Hockey for Life - Learning fundamental sports skills - Building the "engine" and consolidate sport skills - Optimizing "engine" and refine sport skills - Optimizing "engine" and refine sport skills and performance - Maximizing "engine, skills and performance Training to Train 14 and Under Bantams 16 and Under Midgets Learning to Compete 18 and Under Midgets Training to Compete Junior, NCAA Training to Win 19+ Junior, NCAA, NHL Hockey for Life

12 The Key Factors Influencing LTAD Windows of Trainability Five S of Training and Performance Stamina (Endurance) Strength Speed Skill Suppleness (Flexibility) 12

13 The Optimal Window of Trainability for 8U Mites is speed and flexibility On-ice focus for Mites is on Fundamental Movement Skills-ABC s Off-ice focus is on coordination, balance, flexibility and speed Speed training can also be included on the ice in the form of races, tagging games and cross-ice games. Mites

14 10U:This is the prime age for sports skills acquisition Technical skills development is the major focus for this age group. Emphasis should be on skating and puck control skills Correct skills execution must be adhered to Continue with Flexibility Training Skills with a greater degree of complexity should be combined with ABC s (ABC s with puck control) 14

15 TRAINING STRUCTURE Skills - Hockey Skills & Habits Training Fundamental Skills Skating Puck Handling Shooting Passing Body Contact / Body Checking Habits: Facing the Puck, Stopping at the Net, Stick on the Ice, etc. 15

16 TRAINING STRUCTURE Sense - Hockey Concepts & Awareness Training Offensive And Defensive Awareness With And Without The Puck. This Includes The Ability To Read The Level Of Pressure By An Opponent And Make Correct Decisions Accordingly. Development All Of The Key Hockey Concepts That Are Used By All Players: Moving To Open Space Offensive And Defensive Side Body Position Offensive Support And Defensive Support Puck Pressure And Containment 16

17 TRAINING STRUCTURE Systems - Team Play Training Development In This Area Provides For Positional Play Within The Teams Designated Structure. This Would Include Forechecking Patterns And Defensive Zone Coverage Structure Face-off Plays In All 3 Zones Special Teams 17

18 TRAINING STRUCTURE 8U Play to Learn Skills - Hockey Skills & Habits Training 85% Sense Small Area Games & Awareness Training 15% Systems - Team Play Training 0% 10U Learn to Play Skills - Hockey Skills & Habits Training 75% Sense - Hockey Concepts & Awareness Training 15% Systems - Team Play Training 10% 18

19 19

20 MAKE DEVELOPMENT A PRIORITY Ice Utilization Time Efficient Practices ALL Practices Should Be Skill Sessions Station Work Is Critical: 50 % Competitive And Fun Drills Or Games Should Be 10 MN Max Teach In Progression Based On Skill Level Of The Players At Least One Coach Per Station- Two Is Ideal. Emphasize Simple Teaching Points Limit Group Instruction- Learn By Doing Positive Encouragement

21 FUNdamental Stage (6-8 years old) Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) A, B, C s Agility, Balance & Coordination Fun, Repetition, Variety & Structure- short attention spans Group players by skills Large disparity at this age due to amounts time involved in hockey Groups can all be on the ice together, open movement between groups Optimal window is Speed 1 and Flexibility Speed 1 - agility, quickness, change of direction, <5 second intervals Off-ice training 1x per 30+ min, prior or post practice (A, B, C s + Speed + Flexibility) Play multiple sports 25% hockey/ 75% other sports Physical Literacy: 4 Elements- Running, gymnastics, swimming, skiing/skating

22 Isolation can diminish motivation. Nothing creates effort and intensity like staring at older talent, someone who you want to become. Putting groups together on the ice can inject a burst of motivational electricity. Dan Coyle 22

23 8U ADM Practice Plans Station Practices 1 Station Of Abc s Agility, Balance, Coordination & Speed 1 Station Of Puck Control 1 Station Of Passing Or Shooting 1 Station Of Hockey Play, 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 2 Stations With A Skating Emphasis Of The 6 Stations 2-3 Are Always Done In A Games/Play Format Play Is The Key To Unlock Extended Effort And Repetition

24 10 & Under Squirts Learning to Train Stage Optimal Window For Training = Skills (8-11 Yrs) Motor Coordination and ABCs Learning Fundamental Sports Skills - Skating: Change Of Pace, Change Of Direction, Spins - Puck Control: Fakes On Players And Goalie - Passing: Look Off Pass Receiver, Fake Pass - Shooting: Shoot Off Either Foot, Shoot In Stride, Screen Shots, Fake Shot - Body Contact And Angling Basics Should Be Refined - Competing Puck, Winning 1v1 Battles, Loose Puck Races 24

25 10 & Under Squirts Continued Development Of Hockey Sense Through Small Area and Cross Ice Games Play All Positions - Breakout Skills - Angling And Forecheck Skills - Deception Skills Should Be Incorporated Divide Players Into Two Halves: Top ½, Bottom ½ Play Multiple Sports - Throwing, Striking, Kicking FUN Must Be A Key Component Of Every Practice 25

26 10 & Under Squirts Develop Strength Using Exercises That Incorporate The Players Own Body Weight, As Well As Medicine Balls And Swiss Balls General Fitness Concepts Continue To Develop Endurance Through Games And Relays And Develop Flexibility Through Exercises Speed Can Be Developed By Using Activities That Focus On Agility, Quickness And Change Of Direction Short Duration, Less Than 5 Seconds Skills, Skills, Skills 26

27 Practice Progression Ice Utilization 8U Mites 6 Stations players 10U Squirts 4 Stations players 12U Peewee 3 Stations players 14U Bantam 2 Stations players Older age groups can incorporate stations breakdowns from younger groups
