Our 8-week training program will address all elements required for optimal hockey performance. Each aspect of training is designed to maximize a hockey players ability to be explosive on the ice, all the while, reducing the risk of costly injuries. The techniques taught will maximize the propulsive power in each stride when accelerating and changing direction, will ensure athletes are stronger and more stable on the ice, and address key imbalances that are prevalent in hockey players.
The program will cover the strength, power, acceleration, speed, agility, energy systems, and mobility needs of the hockey athlete. At the start, we will go over the technique for all elements, precision and intensity with this is key to ensuring athletes leave with best possible results. We will also go over stretching protocols, ensuring all athletes have a solid understanding of what is needed to perform at their absolute best.
All athletes will also receive an individualized training program – This program is completely targeted to the athlete’s individual needs, while taking into consideration the athletes full schedule as well as recovery. Depending on where the performance gaps for the athlete are, the at home program could include strength work, plyometrics, acceleration and speed work, agility sessions, energy system sessions and recovery/flexibility work. These programs will allow athletes to improve as quickly as possible in order to make the most of their short off-season training. Those who take part in the first ten weeks, will get a great head start for the summer block where we can progress even further.
This is a crucial time for hockey players. You are now in your off-season, a time where hockey players are supposed to focus on getting strong, fast, explosive and well-conditioned but you are stuck at home. Do not let this stop you! Some of you may now have a longer off-season than anticipated - This means more time to put towards your goals, take care of your performance gaps, get rid of nagging injuries and focus on making the changes you need to be a better hockey player. Dont waste another day and get your own individualized At Home Training Program started today. Programs focus on making you an explosive, fast, and strong on your skates type of player.
Our strength work will ensure you become a physical presence, improving your rate of force development for speed, and your ability to maintain dynamic posture and stability to increase your ability to transfer power and absorb contact (less injuries/concussions!). As speed is everything, our programs are designed to improve your ability to explode and accelerate on the ice. Most traditional speed training focuses on maximal velocity speed drills, and while maximum velocity training is important for speed reserve, a hockey player spends most of their time accelerating and changing direction in short intense bursts. The At Home program will focus mostly on the specific acceleration, agility and plyometric work you need to be more explosive.
Endurance needs for hockey players are complex as they need to last an entire game but also remain as explosive in the last minute of the game as they were in the first minute. As multiple energy systems are at play, simply going for runs will not cut it. Our At Home program will target the different energy systems needed, and at what frequency they should be completed in a program for the time of year.
Make the most of your off-season now and get your At Home Program started.

Training Foundation Strength & Conditioning Coach - Jessica Leemans looks after all programming and facilitates all interviews and discussions related to our Sport Specific - At Home Programming.
Jessica Leemans, BSc, MSA, MSc Strength and Conditioning Coach Professional Doctorate in Elite Performance
Head Trainer: Jessica Leemans
Jessica Leemans is a Strength and Conditioning Coach based in the Calgary/Okotoks area. She graduated in 2015 after completing her BSc, MSA and MSc. During this time, Jessica was a two sport NCAA Division 1 athlete, and spent two years coaching at the NCAA D1 level.
Currently, Jessica is completing her Doctorate in Elite Performance, focusing on injury
prevention for some of the most problematic sports injuries. The unique focus of Jessica’s doctorate has massive implications for the hockey athlete, and Jessica’s goal is to help as many hockey players reach beyond what they believed possible for their athletic performance. Jessica has worked with/currently works with hockey players at the NCAA DI level, including top NCAA hockey schools like University of Denver and Ohio State, U-Sports, Team Canada Selection Camp athletes, WHL athletes, and Junior A athletes in the AJHL, SJHL and MJHL with athletes going on to represent Canada West in the World Jr A Challenge and AJHL Selects in the Junior Club World Cup. She also spends time focusing on youth hockey athletes, and has developed young hockey players to be selected in the bantam draft, make bantam and midget AAA teams, play at their desired hockey academies/prep schools, as well as World Selects Invitational teams, Alberta Cup Teams, Team BC, Alberta Winter Games, Alberta Challenge Cup, and Team Brick Alberta. Jessica works with individual athletes and teams from a variety of different associations.
Jessica’s doctorate work focuses on what ideal coordinative patterns around the hip and knee
(the relationship between flexion and extension) and the ability to maintain dynamic core
stability through the lumbar and pelvis means for hockey athletes where acceleration, change
of direction and injury prevention are key performance indicators.
Jessica will be leading our Hockey Development Program at Training Foundation over the Spring and Summer months, using her cutting-edge practical knowledge, scientific research, and hockey specific drills to create drastic improvements in skating ability, power, strength, endurance and agility.
Jessica has worked with hockey players of all levels and ages. Her focus and expertise is in
propulsive mechanisms required for acceleration, power and agility. She was invited to pursue her Professional Doctorate in Elite Performance with a focus on Injury Prevention and
Rehabilitation - which is very valuable for the players heading into their off season for both
recovery from the past season and also preparation for the season to come. Then of course
how to get them optimal results in their window throughout the spring and summer so they
head into the 2020/21 season in the best condition of their life.
I would consider Jessica to be the top coach in my network on her ability to not only get the
best results for the athletes but also with her expertise in the area of injuries as that is
becoming a major issue in all sports so the ability to stay healthy and return to health is key.
