Off Ice Training

A critical element to our E15 and U18 program involves off ice training programs developed and designed by professionals at Hollyburn’s High Performance Centre. These professionals have, and continue to work with a stable of professional athletes across multiple sports, including the National Hockey League. Hollyburn also staffs a number of professional therapists who are available, and on site daily for preventative and reactionary injury care.

Every week, students from both the E15 and U18 will be involved in 2 strength sessions, 1 conditioning session, 1 alternative training session, and 2 video review sessions. Alternative training will include, but is not limited to: yoga, pilates, spin, and plyometric programs. Video review sessions include personal review sessions, team review, and team preparation sessions.

We will utilize our natural surroundings and incorporate a number of training routines involving the local mountain landscape when possible. This includes training on the Grouse Grind, trail running, and mountain hiking. Total off-ice training time over the course of the season is estimated to be 168 hours. Students will also be encouraged to pursue team activities outside of hockey that are available at Sentinel school, and in the local West Vancouver community. This may include rugby, football, soccer, and/or baseball.
