Great Podcast with Dave Tenney

Posted in Injuries, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training with tags , , on October 23, 2013 by mboyle1959

I listen to every StrengthCoach Podcast and enjoy them all but, if you are not a listener or are an occasional listener make sure to download Episode 132. The Dave Tenney interview might be the best of the year ( close second was a two parter with Al Vermeil in Episode 126 and 127).

Another Great Read for Hockey Parents

Posted in Uncategorized on October 17, 2013 by mboyle1959

Should you let your child play up? My friend and colleague Kevin Kneeld made a great point in a recent article. If your child is not one of the five best players on his or her team either keep them where they are or, move them down. Yes, I said down. The key to hockey success ( and really any sports success) is the development of offensive skill. You won’t do that chasing the puck ( or the ball in some cases)

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has it’s limits- Albert Einstein

 

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.-

So You Want to Play in the NHL

Posted in Training, Training Females, Youth Training with tags , , on October 15, 2013 by mboyle1959

The above headline is actually a book title. It is also a must read if you have a child that plays hockey, male or female. The book is not about making the NHL but rather about developing a well rounded child while enjoying the experience. Written by Pittsburgh Penguins Head Coach Dan Byslma and his father Jay, this is great bed time reading for both you and your child. Pick up a copy, you’ll either write in to thank me or, thank me next time we meet.

•All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
