At EXPLOSIVE FEMALE HOCKEY DEVELOPMENT, our coaches are trained to focus and concentrate on an ‘Athlete Centered Approach’
A ‘coach-centred coach’ is there to achieve their own objectives, which are often results-based. They use
control, direct instructions and often a ‘win at all costs’ attitude to achieve this.
At the other end of the spectrum, is the ‘athlete-centred coach’ who places the needs of their athletes at
the centre of the coaching environment. They are focused on player development and creating independent athletes.
Fulfilling a need for a more athlete focused and functional development model, tailored to advancing female hockey players, is our initiative.
One of the most important aspects of a hockey player’s training, is to develop each individual skill-set
whereby they may progress from superior training programs.
We strive at being the leading development programs for females in our community, where we not
only promote positive hockey experiences at all levels, but we also assist with guiding principles from knowledgeable,
educated and certified Edge, Power, Stride skating and hockey coaches and their recognized credentials.
Collectively, as a TEAM, we leverage our combined strengths, knowledge and expertise in the hockey and
skating world to provide high energy, customized and inspired practice techniques, to produce positive
development results which in the end, will assist in creating value for each player during each session.
Our solid morals and objectives enable us to create a value driven development experience for every participant
based on our foundational principles:
#BE EXPLOSIVE = Strength + Power + Speed
