June 29, 2007, Newsletter Issue #125: How Much Practice Time?

Tip of the Week

The difference between a good team that is successful in the playoffs and a team that gets upset in an early round is how the team practices throughout the year. If you consistently work your players until exhaustion every practice they will have nothing left by the end of the year AND be extremely injury prone. The day before a game should be an opportunity to get a little sweat going and move your feet a bit - if a team is practicing poorly, throw them off the ice rather than tiring them out for the upcoming game. Also, toward the end of the season every player will have some type of nagging injury and to consistently exhaust them during practice is counterproductive.
