Difference Between Hockey Training and Practice

Many people do not understand the difference between hockey training and hockey practice. The most obvious difference is that in practice you are training your body for skills that you will perform while playing the game of hockey. Training is something that needs to be done prior to practice. Hockey training physically conditions the body for the right amount of strength and endurance to practice the sport to the best of your body’s abilities.

Why is Hockey Strength Training Important?

Hockey is a contact sport that requires skill, precision and strength. Great athletes work off the ice just as hard as they do on the ice. This is done by participating in off ice hockey strength training. Hockey requires more than just being a good skater and having good puck control. The best players are powerful and fast, something that cannot be taught through practice but must be conditioned with off ice hockey training. Not only will off ice hockey training prepare your body for the rigors of the game, it will also prevent injury by making your body stronger and more flexible.
