Free guide: Individual Player Pre-Season Fitness
Make sure your team are fit as Duracell bunnies and share these hockey fitness tests with your players (use share link above).
With the season fast approaching, pre-season training should be top of your agenda. Whilst stick and ball training sessions need to be begun, so do separate fitness sessions to improve cardiovascular and muscular fitness.
Before any team training your players should ideally do a few sessions on their own and these tests will help guide them.
What's the purpose of Pre-Season?
The aim of the pre-season training is to build up your aerobic endurance - improving your fitness level. Match fitness will only come with matchplay. However a carefully constructed pre-season training session will stand you in good stead for the first match, be it a league game or, ideally, a friendly.
