10 reasons to sign up for HDC CR summer hockey camps
For hockey players, the summer season is inextricably linked to pre-season training. While the period of May and June is dedicated to team physical and fitness training, in July we focus on the development of comprehensive hockey skills in our diagnostic and sports center HDC Czech Republic for children and young people. Here are 10 reasons to sign up for summer camps right here.
1. Unique training center
HDC CR is the largest training center with modern diagnostic and training equipment. The center itself is divided into functional zones - diagnostic zone, fitness zone, shooting zone and skating zone. In addition, the center uses two ice rinks, a swimming pool, an outdoor athletic center and many other sports facilities. The center has modern training equipment and technologies: two skating treadmills, Shooting Navigation (system for training and evaluating the accuracy of shooting), Peripheral Vision (system for training peripheral vision), Life Delay (capturing players with a camera system for immediate feedback), Winmill (shooting and recording simulator), 3 Vertimaxes, complete equipment of a specialized hockey gym, etc. In addition, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to test the fitness and coordination skills of players on dry, ice and skating treadmills.
2. Own hockey hall
For the period of summer camps, we own the entire winter hall and we can therefore adapt training on ice to the number of players on the camp, as well as to include individual training programs. In summer, we combine camping, individual training and pre-season preparation. The training plan of the camps contains up to 3 ice sheets per day.
3. Skating treadmills
Modern hockey requires the development of individual skills of players. These include skating technique, individual game activities (disc guidance, passing, shooting,…), peripheral vision and skating condition. At HDC CR, we develop all these activities except training on ice, especially on skating treadmills. Constant correction by the coach, permanent feedback to the players with a camera system, Laser Guide, the inclination of the skating plane and more create perfect conditions for training.
4. Shooting zone
More than 260 m2 of synthetic ice allows you to practice shooting, stickhandling, dribbling, passing and other individual activities for individuals and groups of players on skates and without them. The Shooting Navigation system (a system for training and evaluating the accuracy of shooting) and the Winmill shooting and recording machine complete the ideal training conditions.
5. The best hockey gym
Dry training of hockey players requires an appropriate environment for training strength, strength in speed, explosiveness, acceleration and condition. Our hockey gym represents the optimal environment for such training. The force zone, the functional zone, the gas zone, the aerobic zone and the agility zone form a logical division. Two running tracks, a track for load sledges, Vertimaxes, exercise bikes, TRX suspension systems, unstable Bosu pads and many others complete the basic equipment with dumbbells, medicine balls, skipping ropes, expanders and more.
6. Outdoor athletic training
Training in dynamic strength, explosiveness and acceleration is an integral part of the training programs of our summer hockey camps. The outdoor athletic center with a tartan surface and multifunctional courts is part of the HDC ČR complex.
7. Regeneration in the pool
No training program should include regeneration. HDC CR uses summer swimming pool in summer camps, which is located next to the center. Professional supervision of coaches ensures optimal regeneration and preparation for further training.
8. Professional trainers
We emphasize expertise and experience. In addition to coaching licenses, our coaches undergo continuous training at the HDC CR. We pay attention to specializations for the all-round development of players. We have specialized trainers for fitness, skating technique, stickhandling and shooting, game skills.
9. Hockey English
Part of our camps is also language preparation. Participants of our camps regularly improve their skills in English under the guidance of professional lecturers and experienced trainers abroad.
10. Compensatory activities in nature
Hockey training is physically and mentally demanding. That is why we pay attention to additional compensatory activities, which include walking trips to the Brdy forests, scootering and more.
Summer camps are not only quality training, but also fun for everyone involved. Come and get to know yourself.
