Today – We are here to PUMP YOU UP! With a little help from our friend Mark Fitzgerald, Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Anaheim Ducks.
Mark was a speaker at our TeamSnap Hockey Coaches Conference in Vancouver this past summer and is clearly passionate about developing athletes of all shapes, sizes and abilities. The Ducks were recently in Vancouver to play the Canucks and Mark was kind enough to swing by The Coaches Site headquarters to talk about how great athletes make great hockey players.
Mark offers some great stories and tips on how to engage your team and develop a culture focused on long term athlete development. By doing so you’ll not only better support those players who have the potential to play the game at an elite level, you’ll also inspire habits that contribute to leading a healthy and active life style.
Of course Mark also touches on what it’s like working with some of the best athletes on the planet on a daily basis, what sets them apart and what we can learn from them.
Oh….and Kelvin took a puck in the eye at practice (see below) and rushed to the podcast straight from the emergency room! Talk about commitment!!
Access to our entire library of videos from our annual TeamSnap Hockey Coaches Conference. You can cancel any time, although after joining a community of coaches from all over the world using the videos on a daily basis to pick up new tips and stay relevant, we doubt you will.
