Program Name

MaxPro Red Machine: Week 5

Program Description

This is a week-long, full-day summer training program.

Each week of Red Machine offers 15 hours of on-ice training, 15 hours of off-ice training, and 5 hours of Chalk Talk with our professional coaches. 

The on-ice training curriculum will entail the fundamentals of skating, stickhandling, checking (dependent on situation with COVID-19), and game play. The basis of the teaching strategy for MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills is to combine the strongest Russian and North American hockey training techniques. Russia has been a dominant force in international hockey for the past several decades. This is due to the rigorous methods used in training and educating hockey players, with a focus on techniques. The emphasis of the MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills program is on the development of skating techniques and game strategies. Skillful skating techniques are an important part of becoming an accomplished hockey player. The MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills program incorporates the traditional, powerful, straight-ahead approach of North American skating, with the high-speed, fluid maneuverability of the Russians. The program also combines the team tactics of Russian tradition, with the more assertive North American style.

The off-ice training will entail running, plyometrics, body weight training, agility, stretching, and off-ice shooting. 

Chalk Talk is instrumental for player progression and encompasses video analysis, hockey IQ development, self-evaluation exercises, and open-dialogue discussions. 

We are accepting 30 players per week of Red Machine. 

Program Coaching

MaxPro Hockey Club Owner and former professional player Max Gratchev will conduct all training. Our highly qualified assistant coaches will assist or substitute as needed.
