Top Non-Hockey Sports That IMPROVE Your Hockey Skills!April 13, 2017 2:26 pm
It should come as no surprise that participation in other activities helps to provide well-rounded athleticism, a mental break from their primary sport, as well as a social communication dimension when working with new teammates.
Few, if any sports will hurt your hockey skills; however here are a few sports we think have some awesome qualities that translate to improving your hockey skills!
- Great hand eye coordination work, coupled with a great blend of cardio, physical, and hockey like movements. Also, similar positioning and overall team strategies.
- Tremendous cardio workout improving stamina and endurance. Foot skills in soccer will greatly help ankle strength in stride development as well as edge control.
- Involving incredible mental focus and concentration. No different than bouncing back from a bad shift, the same applies to a bad stroke in golf. Mental resiliency 101. Plus, the mechanics of a sound swing in golf are very similar to that in a great snap and slap shot!
No matter what, be sure your athletes are out and active enjoying the beautiful weather, getting sweaty and working hard!
TWO MONTHS & COUNTING until we’re rolling this summer! We can’t wait to see everyone soon!
