Team & Large Group

The Next Prospect (TNP) Hockey is an organization that provides elite-level hockey training programs. When developing a team training program for TNP Hockey, we take into account some key considerations:

  1. Skill Development: Skills such as skating, stickhandling, shooting, passing, and defensive positioning.

  2. Team Tactics: Team tactics are critical to successful gameplay. This includes strategies such as forechecking, breakouts, defensive zone coverage, and power plays.

  3. Conditioning: Ice hockey is a physically demanding sport, ensuring that your players are in top physical shape. We will help work on developing endurance and strength through our on & off-ice programs. 

Private Sessions

 TNP Hockey's one-on-one hockey lessons offer a variety of benefits for players of all skill levels. Here are some of the key benefits:

  1. Personalized attention: With one-on-one instruction, the player gets the instructor's full attention, allowing for personalized attention and coaching that addresses specific areas of improvement. The coach can tailor the instruction to the player's unique skill level and learning style, which can help accelerate progress.

  2. Faster skill development: Private lessons allow for a more focused training session that can help accelerate skill development. This is especially important for players who want to improve quickly or have specific goals they want to achieve.

  3. A better understanding of the game: Private lessons offer an opportunity for the coach to provide a better understanding of the game and how it's played at an elite level. This can help players gain a deeper understanding of the game and make better decisions on the ice.

  4. Increased confidence: One-on-one coaching can help build confidence in players by providing positive feedback and encouragement. This can be especially important for younger players who are just starting to learn the game.

  5. Flexibility: Private lessons can be scheduled around the player's busy schedule, allowing for more flexibility and convenience.

Small Group / Position Specific

 Position-specific training is crucial in hockey, and The Next Prospect (TNP) Hockey can provide customized training programs for each player based on their position. Here are some guidelines for position-specific training for TNP Hockey:

  1. Goalies: Goalies have a unique set of skills that require specialized training. Position-specific training for goalies should focus on footwork, angles, crease movement, rebound control, and handling the puck.

  2. Defensemen: Defensemen play a critical role in protecting their team's net and supporting the offense. Position-specific training for defensemen should focus on skating, gap control, body positioning, stickwork, and outlet passing.

  3. Forwards: Forwards are responsible for generating offense and scoring goals. Position-specific training for forwards should focus on skating, stickhandling, shooting, passing, and offensive positioning.

  4. Special Teams: Special teams are a crucial part of hockey, and you need to develop specific strategies

Video Breakdown

 Video breakdown and review can be an effective way to improve hockey skills. Here are some steps to help you conduct a video breakdown and review:

  1. Record your performance: Record your performance during a game or practice session. This can be done with a camera or smartphone.

  2. Identify areas for improvement: Watch the recording and identify areas where you need to improve. This can include positioning, technique, decision-making, and teamwork.

  3. Review with a coach: Review the recording with a coach who can provide feedback and help you develop a plan to improve. The coach can point out specific areas where you need to improve, provide guidance on technique, and suggest drills and exercises to help you improve.

  4. Practice and review: Practice the skills and techniques you've identified and record yourself again. Watch the new recording and compare it to the previous one. Look for improvement in the areas you've been working on.

  5. Continuously repeat the process: Continuously repeat this process to monitor your progress and identify new areas for improvement. This can help you build on your strengths and work on your weaknesses, which can ultimately lead to better performance on the ice.

Off-Ice Training

​At TNP Hockey we focus on off-ice training to help our athletes:

  1. Improve physical conditioning: Our off-ice program and partners will help hockey players' overall fitness, including their endurance, strength, speed, agility, balance, and coordination. This will help them to perform better on the ice, make faster and more explosive movements, and reduce the risk of injury.

  2. Injury prevention: By strengthening the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the body, off-ice training can reduce the risk of injury during on-ice activities. This can help to keep players healthy and on the ice.

  3. Skill development: Off-ice training can include skill-specific exercises that can help hockey players improve their skating, shooting, passing, and stickhandling skills. This can help players to develop their abilities and perform at a higher level.

  4. Mental preparation: Off-ice training can help players to develop mental toughness and resilience, which can translate into better performance on the ice. This can include exercises to improve focus, concentration, and emotional control.

Off-ice training is an essential part of hockey players' development and will help them to perform at their best on the ice. It will provide a range of physical and mental benefits that can help players to stay healthy, improve their skills, and develop a winning mindset.
