ON ICE TEAM PRACTICE

Academy teams practice on the ice as a full team from 4-5 times a week depending on our game rhythm. In order to maintain

the best possible intensity, focus and quality in our team training – sessions are maximum 60-75 minutes long. Additional ice

sessions are implemented into the program according to need (for example: pre game skate- special unit sessions- specific

skills sessions).

Pre and post training meetings are held in the locker-rooms to add the value and quality of the learning and development process.

NHA philosophy and educational development concept includes 10 on ice habits that each individual masters and shall

independently perform in each ice session in each drill.


These habits are designed to increase the personal performance level in each training and together with the “20 C” concept players

are able to enjoy and challenge themselves better in daily training.


Specific position coaching and skills training for goalies, defencemen and forwards are done on weekly basis.
