Kirkland, WA 4-3-20: The Sno-King Jr. Thunderbirds 16U AAA Coaching Staff has released their off-season training program.
The training program incorporates weight training, plyometrics, dynamic warm-up and warm downs, jump rope bike and road training, all designed to enhance and maintain a player's strength, cardio-vascular, aerobic, anaerobic, quickness and explosiveness.
The program is available to any player who registers for the 16U AAA tryouts. Players can receive the program, simply by registering for tryouts and contacting 16U Head Coach, Mike Butters.
The off-season workout program is being maintained by 16U AAA strength and conditioning coach, Jacob Alberts. "Jake" is certified in the field of fitness and has consulted with NHL and NCAA teams in the development of this off-season program. "This program is simple. It is designed to prepare players for the upcoming tryouts and season, in general. It incorporates the latest training techniques and, if implemented into a players daily regime, will yield positive results."
"The tie-breaker in many decisions on a player, comes down to their overall fitness level," says 16U Head Coach, Mike Butters. While working in the NHL, I quickly discovered why these players made it to this level. Sure, their skill was superior, but it was their attention to fitness and nutrition that separated them from much of their competition."
