Bonus # 3: 1-Week Pre-Season Training Guide (Value: $200)
Hockey teams at all age-groups are beginning their season with a pre-season camp. The off-ice training used at these camps typically results in DECREASED athletic performance, and frequently leads to injury. I recently developed and ran a 1-week off-ice training program for an entire youth organization, from squirts through midgets (8-18 year olds). At the end of the week, all the athletes felt great, moved better, and performed at a high level on the ice. In fact, the midgets won a tournament championship the weekend immediately following the camp. That certainly beats limping around for a week! This training guide is the exact program I used for this organization. I almost NEVER give away my programs. With something for athletes of all ages, you won’t want to miss this!
Save thousands of dollars!
Program Creator Kevin Neeld, BSc, MS, CSCS:
"In an ideal world, every team would have a well-qualified athletic development coach working with them. Except for the top-tier junior, collegiate, and professional organizations, this is just not financially possible. I’ve charged over $2,000 for one week of off-ice training in certain circumstances. Even at $50/hour (as cheap as GOOD trainers come), an organization is likely to pay over $2,000 EVERY season! To acquire this knowledge on your own, it’d cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in college courses, and countless hours of your time.
This entire course is only $197 97! Even at $197 it’d be a steal. Now available to you in EBook format for a quarter of the price because I believe so strongly in the quality of this information and the ease of its application that I don’t want price to be a barrier for any coach. Not only will you save yourself thousands of dollars this season, but you will save yourself thousands EVERY season by continuing to apply the strategies you learn from this course.
"The HTU Off-Ice Performance Training Course effectively covers all areas of off-ice team training. Kevin has done an excellent job of condensing a lot of information into a product that is easy to understand and implement. I have used many of the presented warm-up exercises with my athletes with success for years and added some of the novel exercises to my current programs. This course will be an excellent resource for hockey coaches of all levels that are looking to improve the quality and effectiveness of their off-ice program."
Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach

“The HTU E-course is one of the best off-ice training educational tools I’ve ever come across. The progression of workouts ensures that players will continuously improve their strength, speed and agility. Through a variety of exercises, the monotony of dry land practices will be over and players will look forward to coming together as a team to train. Coaches, players and parents will see the results in attitude and performance. If you're looking for a more effective method to implement off-ice practices into your team's routine, this is it.”
Assistant Coach, Men’s Ice Hockey

"Whether you are a hockey coach at the youth, junior, or collegiate level, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of Hockey Training U’s “Off-Ice Performance Training Course”. Kevin has put together a resource that can teach a coach with NO training experience how to put together off-ice training programs for their athletes. With everything from training progressions to nutritional discussions, it is truly a comprehensive one stop shop, with every thing you need to know to prepare your players to perform at their best.The best part about this manual, is that Kevin speaks on a level that anyone can comprehend. High quality information has never been so easy to implement.
Kevin has combined his years of hockey playing experience and "in the trenches" work training hockey players to create a product of unsurpassed quality. No hockey coach should be without it.”
