I hope everyone is doing great.  Summer is coming to a close as off-season programs are wrapping up all over North America.

It has been a great summer for me personally as I was able to spend more time with my family, work with some of our players, and learn and speak at several conferences and workshops all over the world.  It is time to get geared up for the pre-season.

As far as what’s going on at HockeySC.com, we’ve been having a run of getting some really good content added to the site.  Here is what we have added recently:

Articles

Understanding (or Misunderstanding) Aerobic Training by Michael Boyle.  This was originally posted at Strengthcoach.com.  Michael was kind enough to let us post this on our site.

I can’t believe it is already August.  Training camp and the beginning of hockey season will be here in no time.   Off-season training programs are going in full swing in the USA and Canada with lots of players returning to the ice for on-ice conditioning sessions.

My son Will just completed the spring/summer In-House league at Anaheim Ice.  During this season, he was actually “traded” or added from one team to another.  In fact, they actually played each other in the finals with Will’s new team, the Blazers winning the championship.  Now, he is getting ready for Mite-B travel hockey (while also playing soccer), which will start real soon.  As a parent, it was so neat to watch him continue in his development as a hockey player.

It’s been a few weeks since my last update on the site.  During that time, HockeySC has added lots of content.

Here is what we have added:
