Created by Coach Dan Garner who has worked with athletes in:
Dear Hockey Parent/Coach,
Imagine watching your kid be the best player on the ice game in and out. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have other parents complement your player's hockey skills knowing how hard they work? How great would it feel to see your player smiling... telling you all about how much fun they have playing hockey?
It's all possible with our newest Breakaway Speed Kit.
If your player can commit to following the system exactly as laid out, you’ll discover that by the end of the 30 days, they will be skating faster, have more energy, and dominate the ice like never before.
Prepare yourself for the “what has your kid been doing?” questions that will inevitably come once other parents from your kid's team witness their new abilities.
Here's the story:
That was just one of several self-defeating thoughts that started to creep into my mind when I was younger.
Growing up, I was a decent hockey player, but I was never quite good enough to make it to that next level where I wanted to be.
After getting cut from a local AAA team for the fifth year in a row, I started to question my love for the game.
I lost all confidence in myself and thought about just giving up to save myself from even more disappointment.
Even though this was a difficult time for me, in hindsight, I'm glad it happened because it was the wake-up call that I desperately needed.
I realized that I had to make some changes in my life if there was any hope of becoming the hockey player that I dreamt of one day.
So, I licked my wounds, took a step back, and asked myself, "What could I be doing better?".
I didn't have much of a training regime as a young player.
Sure, I worked hard and did everything I thought I was supposed to do.
I'd stay on the ice after practice to get some extra reps in, I'd do sit-ups before bed... I'd even wake up early for power skating lessons on weekends and spend my free time shooting hundreds of pucks in my driveway.
The effort was there, but there really wasn't any rhyme or reason behind anything, so I never seemed to make any real progress.
I knew that if I tightened things up with my training, I would see improvement, but there was one problem.
I had no idea where to start.
I desperately wanted to become a better hockey player, but I had no plan to help get there.
I felt STUCK.
Now... I know there are thousands of hockey players out there who also feel stuck just like I once did.
And if you're reading this right now, I'm willing to bet that your player is having the same difficulties as I once did.
If that's the case, I want you to continue reading with me.
Even if your player is already pretty darn good and just wants to continue getting better, stick around.
Because in a minute, I'm going to show you exactly how one decision can drastically improve your kid's game.
As I mentioned earlier, I had no idea how to train like a hockey player properly.
And since the internet wasn't as big back then as it is today, I didn't have many resources at my disposal.
So, I decided to invest in hiring a professional to help me improve my on-ice performance.
That's when I found Coach Dan Garner...
Coach Dan (who is now the head Hockey Performance Specialist here at HockeyTraining.com) introduced me to REAL hockey training, and the results I saw with his programs were mind-blowing...
I went from being an average skater to being known as the "speedy kid"...
I racked up my stat-card with goals and assists...
And my name was the one circled on every opposing team's scouting report.
Once I finally started training like a hockey player the game slowed down for me, and it was like I was playing on "easy" mode.
As a result, I had never felt more confident in myself as a player. And that confidence is what allowed me to start playing the game fearlessly. So instead of worrying about making a mistake, I wasn't worrying at all.
I was just having fun and playing a lot better because of it.
Amazed at the results I saw on the ice from the training, I teamed up with Coach Dan to create HockeyTraining.com, and we released our first-ever hockey training program shortly after.
Fast forward eight years later, and we are now a well-recognized and respected name in the hockey world with success stories from hundreds of players of all ages and skill levels.
And we are ready to release our biggest project yet.
And it's the most surefire way to help any hockey player (of any skill level or age) become a blazing fast skater.
Many hockey players think you have to be born with speed, and if you're not a fast player, you never will be a fast player.
But here's the truth:
Skating speed is 100% a trainable quality.
I don't care whether your hockey player has a ton or minimal training experience -- are new to hockey or an experienced pro. It makes no difference what kind of speed they have today...
Using new sports performance research and his experience gained with each passing year, Coach Dan has put together the best and most complete speed training system in the world that can help any hockey player gain speed in just 30 days.
In 2020 we launched our first version of the Speed Kit, and the feedback from players worldwide was terrific.
Like Corey Waring, who left this review:
"Been using the speed kit all summer with a group of 4 players aged 14, have seen amazing results with strength, speed, agility and cardio vascular endurance both on and off the ice. Would recommend anyone looking to increase speed and power on the ice use the product to see great results."
Or this 5-star review from Nathalie:
"I ordered the speed kit for my son as soon as it came out, we received it just a few days later! The kit is AMAZING!!! My son followed the kid’s training plan and he just loved it! He could not stop he was having so much fun! And added bonus he gained in speed. It was a really good purchase!"
While results have been excellent from every hockey player who ran our initial 30-day program, we knew we could get even better and faster results for players if they had access to a few more tools.
So for 2022, we've combined the six most powerful hockey-specific speed training tools into one hockey training kit...
Here's what you'll get shipped to your door:
(6) Explosive Speed Rings
(1) Balance Foam Pad
(5) Athletic Movement Bands
(1) Edge Work Enhancer Ladder
(2) Skater Sliders
(1) Hockey Reaction Ball
Each tool was carefully chosen to allow any hockey player who has access to the Breakaway Speed Kit™ to upgrade their explosiveness and skating speed from home in just a few short weeks.
Let's look at how each tool can help your hockey player unlock notable speed improvements on the ice...
What Are The Explosive Speed Rings?
Included are six rings that can be used on their own or together in various ways utilizing the easy-to-use clips. They are great for hockey speed, explosiveness, and edge work drills.
Why Are They Beneficial For Hockey Speed And Overall Performance?
These explosive speed rings are a 3-for-1 bonus for hockey players because of their versatility.
You can lay them flat to perform dozens of different edge work and plyometric drills (excellent for that first step quickness we discussed above).
Or stand them up and connect them to create mini-hurdles used for the most explosive plyometric training that all hockey players should be doing.
The hurdles are an excellent way to tackle the complete speed development department through various power highways:
Vertical power-based exercises are excellent for explosive starting speed and acceleration.
Horizontal power-based exercises are excellent for deceleration and top speed training.
Finally, lateral power-based exercises maximize your stride length and stride frequency.
These three “power highways” are best trained using the objective measures that the hurdles provide you.
Lastly, we use them as markers/cones for many hockey speed drills - eliminating the need to carry around another piece of equipment (cones) for your training.
There are many boxes being checked with only one item, and it too can be very effectively programmed into your hockey training no matter what pillar you are working on.
What Is The Balance Foam Pad?
This is a rectangular balance pad that provides recruitment of all the stabilizing muscles in your ankles and core that don’t get appropriately activated through traditional training methods.
Why Is It Beneficial For Hockey Speed And Overall Performance?
Most hockey players and parents associate speed development with the fast-paced, explosive type of dryland training. However, that type of high-velocity work will never reach its potential to positively impact your game if you don’t have the balance and ankle stability to support it.
Balance and stability training for edge work mechanics can vary from mildly difficult (e.g., bodyweight squats on foam pad) to extremely difficult (e.g., T-Stand on foam pad), so it can be effectively incorporated into a warm-up, workout, or cool-down.
When you stand on the pad, you immediately feel the effects of forced instability and how your functional tissues need to activate and adapt to create new levels of dynamic balance.
Since this will contribute to a vast range of performance metrics and be very low-impact during times of injury or recovery, this is a no-brainer for any hockey player to have in their arsenal.
What Are The Athletic Movement Bands?
Included are five bands of various tension levels that offer an extremely convenient and effective way to target unique angles of ankle strength while being a dominant tool for strengthening other critical skating muscles such as the glutes and groin.
Why Are They Beneficial For Hockey Speed And Overall Performance?
Increasing in resistance the further you go, bands are great to challenge ankle inversion and eversion for elite edgework, which is very difficult to do without a proper band (and by difficult, I mean next to impossible).
I also use them as my go-to for groin and glute training because they create a stronger stride while simultaneously providing a significant injury reduction benefit. For example, research has demonstrated that professional hockey players are 17x more likely to sustain a groin injury when their adductor strength was less than 80% of their abductor strength.
Bands allow you to target the groin directly, thus, dramatically reducing your risk for injury out on the ice. Additionally, since they are excellent at isolating the gluteus maximus and medius, you can directly target two of the largest muscle groups involved in generating an explosive skating stride.
Lastly, since the tension can be selected at a low amount of resistance, it gives you something to do on your recovery days to help you become a better hockey player without detracting from the recovery you need to perform in games, practices, and more intense dryland training sessions.
What Is The Edge Work Enhancer Ladder?
This is a speed/agility ladder that you lay flat on the ground for quick feet, speed, and edge work training. It folds into a compact size and comes with its own storage bag.
Why Is It Beneficial For Hockey Speed And Overall Performance?
Elite hockey athletes must create a stable balance around the ankles because the greater amount of force the ankles can safely absorb and produce results in their ability to transfer into better edge work and overall better skating.
In addition to lower body force production, strengthening the stabilizing muscles around the ankle helps prevent the chronic issues associated with high-velocity motion, such as shin splints and tendonitis.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, increased ankle stability leads to enhanced proprioception.
Proprioception is the body’s ability to realize its place in space (think of having better “body awareness” out on the ice).
If you’re skating and unable to stabilize the ankle joint structure, the body will send alert signals to the brain, warning that the tissue structure is in danger.
You can think about it like how your body warns you before you drop down too low into the splits — it lets you know:
“Hey! You’re going to get injured if you go further than this.”
Proprioception limits optimal ranges of motion because this safety-measure the body has in place will prevent you from creating deep angles on your inside/outside edges and, thus, reduce your skating potential.
Elite skaters like Sidney Crosby don’t have these warning signals in place because their ankle stability can absorb and redirect very high levels of force. Because of this, you regularly see him hit excellent edges on a moment’s notice and slip in, and out of mohawk turns like they are nothing.
Ankle stability leads to superior proprioception, leading to exceptional balance and awareness during high-speed movement.
No tools train ankle stiffness and coordination better than the speed ladder, so I am a huge fan of including them within the program design for hockey players who have access to them.
They have a wide variety of applications that can be used in any one of the three pillars above -- it is a very versatile tool and one I think should be in every serious hockey player's toolkit.
What Are The Skater Sliders?
The two skater sliders are small sliding discs that you can place under your feet to glide easily across any smooth surface to more effectively mimic a skating stride and train your core in a way that drives maximum hockey performance.
Why Are They Beneficial For Hockey Speed And Overall Performance?
There are many reasons I like sliders, but on the top of the list is the apparent translation they have toward allowing you to mimic a skating stride at home.
Whether through stationary slider skating strides or sliding lateral lunges, you can target the lateral musculature responsible for skating speed in hockey players in a more effective way than if you were to try and do these movements without a slider. This is especially true for plantar flexion reps, which improve stride length propulsion and are impossible to do without them.
Equally important but less well-known is how large of an impact the core has on speed development. The function of the core in speed development represents itself in agility through a faster change of direction speed due to improved force absorption and redirection in the deceleration and acceleration phases.
Additionally, the core “unlocks” speed development. When your core is weaker than your lower body your nervous system will shut down maximum fiber recruitment in the lower body as a protective mechanism to reduce injury risk in the upper body. Just like you wouldn’t want to shoot a cannon out of a canoe because the foundation isn’t strong enough to keep you safe, the nervous system shuts down speed output using the same ideology.
A strong core equals better agility and higher speed outputs due to both improved force output and reduced inhibition, and the skater sliders are one of the best tools in the book to get the job done.
They’re also easy to transport and hockey-specific, you can’t ask for much more than that.
What Is The Hockey Reaction Ball?
This six-sided ball will bounce unpredictably when thrown against a wall for reactive agility and speed training.
Why Is It Beneficial For Hockey Speed And Overall Performance?
The lopsided nature of the reaction ball design forces it to bounce in unpredictable patterns.
This is a great and simple way to optimize the “mental agility” pathways we discussed above regarding the optimization of your reaction time and your offensive and defensive awareness.
Although the tool may seem simple on the surface, there are many drills that you can include in any speed, agility, or conditioning workout to add a mental component to your training.
The mental component to training is something many hockey players forget, yet, if you talk to any NHL player, one of the first things they will tell you is how much of the game is mental rather than physical.
Even Wayne Gretzky was famous for saying, "I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been."
Your mind is a tool, just like anything else in your body. It can and SHOULD be trained regularly!
The reaction ball is an effective way to train your mind and your body simultaneously to achieve that mind-body connection you need to become a better hockey player.
If you've ever seen a hockey player who looks good in practice but panics or struggles in a high-paced unpredictable game atmosphere, you've seen a player that could benefit from the Hockey Reaction Ball.
If there's one thing we know from our experience with training thousands of hockey players...
It's that a tool is only as good as it is applied.
You can have all of the best fancy tools and equipment, however, if you don't know how to use them properly in a proper hockey-specific training system, they aren't much good.
Thankfully we have world-renowned hockey performance specialist, Coach Dan Garner, in our corner, and he has taken all of the guesswork out of how to use the tools in the Breakaway Speed Kit™ with our revolutionary hockey speed training program:
The Done-For-You Blueprint For Upgrading Your Player's Explosive Speed In Just 30 Days Transforming Them Into A Completely Brand New Player That Leaves Coaches Shocked From Their Improvements!
The all-new 30-Day Breakaway Speed 2.0 System was designed to take all of the guesswork out of it for your hockey player so they can train with the most cutting-edge methods to get serious results.
This intense 30-day progressive training approach includes weekly speed, conditioning, agility, and edge workouts to become an explosive and elite skater.
You will get access to the comprehensive 30-day schedule that shows you exactly what your hockey player should do each day, and they will be performing each of their workouts with your new hockey training tools included in the Breakaway Speed Kit™.
Players of any age will be able to train like NHL players in a safe, effective, and fun way with equipment designed for hockey performance and a detailed program created by a professional hockey performance specialist.
Here's a look at some of the features of this revolutionary hockey speed training program:
Cutting-Edge Linear Crossover Drills - Have you ever noticed how the fastest players in the world (i.e., McDavid, MacKinnon) use crossovers when skating up the ice with the puck? We use never-before-seen drills to help players produce more power and speed with their crossovers that will have them creating breakaway opportunities by blowing past opponents who can't keep up.
Transitional Speed Training - These unique training methods will help players catch opponents flat-footed and blast past them in the transition game, leading to scoring opportunities in the blink of an eye. Your player will become so dangerous in transition that their coach will want them to play in all special team situations.
Elusive Hip Opener Exercises - Watch players like Cale Makar or Kirill Kaprizov, and you will notice a new approach to skating that creates open ice by using evasive open hip edge work techniques. Our unusual exercises that you won't see in a regular non-hockey training program will help players feel more comfortable and powerful while opening their hips to put up highlight reel points that will have everyone in the rink on notice.
And so much more!
Remember, if your player's speed isn't where they want it to be, it's not their fault...
Real speed progress comes from real hockey-specific training, and this type of programming only comes from a hockey performance specialist.
