Pre-season preparation
for top players

Who is the program for?

This program is designed for pre-season preparation for performance and top ice hockey players. Based on a comprehensive diagnosis of the player's current training level, we develop individual training cycles of 2 to 8 weeks to develop the player's special abilities and eliminate gaps to improve his performance on the ice.


Comprehensive off season preparation of players takes place in 3 specific training environments under the umbrella of HDC Czech Republic: ice, dry land and hockey skating treadmill. Players are created at least a two -week training micro -cycle, in which we individually adjust its volume as well as the intensity of the load.

However, it is best to complete a 4 to 8 -week micro -cycle to achieve comprehensive seasonal player readiness. Under the guidance of the HDC coaching team, consisting of professional hockey, fitness and mental trainers, physiotherapists and specialists in the regeneration and player‘s health, off season preparation consists of the following areas:

▪ Diagnostics
