Real Balance Training for Hockey Players


The neural language your body is utilizing must have some degree of transfer/specific carryover to your sports demands – if it doesn’t, you’re just learning how to do circus tricks … not become a better hockey player.

Balance training is something that has made its waves through the hockey training industry, but what it’s really trying to accomplish is something more accurately described as proprioception. Proprioception represents how the body reads information from various body parts in motion, as well as what’s going on in the environment around your body.

This information (proprioceptive feedback) is the language that your nervous system uses to figure out what is happening with your body and what move it should make next in order to accomplish whatever task you’re trying to complete.
