04E Team Continues to Develop

The bar has been raised….  Last weekend we saw two tight battles for our Rangers that they came up short on. The Rangers were not pleased with the outcome of the games but are very happy with the collective effort and desire to improve.  Coach Gatti and his staff have our players working hard on and off the ice.

Monday is “Skills Monday” on the ice with Coach Ryan Blair. Before their skills session, the Rangers focus on off-ice training. Monday is known as “Power Plyo Monday”, and the kids form and explosiveness is visually improving.  They are doing exercises on the stride sled, box jumps, vertical jumps and more. The overall athleticism of each kid is improving.

Wednesday, the Rangers team trains with Breakaway Total Hockey Training and Coach Bill which focuses on breathing, core strength and balance.  The progress and enthusiasm the kids are bring to each session is great. The Rangers on ice practice on Wednesday is filled with high tempo drills to get our players a lot of touches. The Rangers also devote a good amount of time to work on edge work and stride work in addition to other skills and concepts. 

Friday is “Speed Friday”.  The Rangers are back in the gym to cap off the work week building on the power and balance of Monday and Wednesday and working on speed and agility.  The boys have come a long way, and they are working hard. 


The Streak Continues     

The ’07 Elites collected two wins on the weekend, extending their win streak to eight.

On Saturday, the team defeated the Valley Junior Warriors 3-1. The game was tied at one heading into the third period. From there the Rangers would add goals by Zander Green and Kyle Byron (1g,9a) to secure the win. Green finished the game with two goals and assist. Also assisting on goals were Brady Sacco (2), Ian Dalton, and Kyle Byron. Goalie David Karlberg (2.70 GAA; 0.903 Save %) recorded 24 saves in the game.

On Sunday, the Rangers headed west to play the Springfield Rifles. The Rangers defeated the previously unbeaten Rifles 7-3. Zander Green (21g,8a) led the way recording 5 goals on the afternoon, while adding two assists. Once again the game was tied heading into the third period, this time 3 goals apiece. That’s when the Rangers took over, Karlberg shut the door on the Rifles stopping all 15 shots in the third period, finishing the game with 38 saves. Joey Giacchetto (3,8a) and Kieran Carlin (2g,6a) each added a goal. Carlin added three assists and Giacchetto added two. Ian Dalton and Kevin Vaughan each added an assist. The team played the game with only 6 forwards, three defensemen, and a goalie. The entire team rose to the occasion with a solid effort

Why are we coaching "breathing" in the gym?
Does what we’re coaching apply to parents as well as kids?
First of all, the answer to the second question is Yes, it does apply to parents as well as kids.  
Why are we coaching “breathing”?  A majority of the population are chest breathers (i.e. they don’t use their diaphragm to properly breathe).  In our informal tests in the gym, we’ve seen that over 75% of our young athletes fall into this category.   It’s pretty much an accepted fact that improving breathing patterns leads to better recruitment of the proper muscles and better stress management, resulting in improvements in athletic and academic performance.   We’ve introduced an exercise call Crocodile Breathing into our workouts to help our athletes to improve their breathing patterns.  Here are a few links related to the subject.

15 Reasons Why You Should Play Multiple Sports


15 Reasons Why Children Should Play Multiple Sports

Are your children playing more than 1 sport? There are many reasons why children should play multiple sports. Playing multiples sports help children learn more sport skills, promotes positive youth development and develops more creative players. Far too often we see players quit playing sports at a very early age. Playing multiple sports helps to prevent early burnout and decreases dropout rates. We will see reduced amounts of injuries, development of sport and social confidence, improved motivation and increased enjoyment. While playing multiple sports children will see increased pattern recall skills, improved cognitive skills, improved decision making skills and notice that physical abilities increase faster. If you love and want to play sports for your whole life playing multiple sports is linked to longer sports careers.
