Go behind the scenes with the Cornell hockey program as you follow Coach Mike Schafer through three up-tempo hockey practices.
Through live practice sessions, Coach Schafer and staff demonstrate proven drills you can implement into your program. Discover drills that will help your goaltenders and players get warmed up while improving individual skills. And drills involving team play concepts and small area games to develop your players while having fun in a competitive environment.
You will see how Schafer communicates with his players in white board, pre-practice locker room meetings, during the execution of the drills and in team huddles between drills.
All drills are run at high tempo and designed to be executed with maximum levels of intensity. These drills target very specific aspects of the Cornell hockey program and demand that players perfect the basic skills needed to build a solid foundation for competing at the college level.
The two greatest concepts behind this series of practices are the simplicity in drill design and the importance of communication between players on and off the ice.
There are a wide variety of drills to learn from and enjoy.
336 minutes (3 DVDs). 2012.
All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's practice can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!
I really enjoyed watching this 3 DVD set. You really get a full view of how Coach Schafer runs his practice sessions and I'm sure you will come away with something you can use at your level. Keep in mind that this is a DI head coach with lots of ice time to do with as he sees fit. Each day of practice starts with goalie drills and skating drills run by the assistant coaches before the full team practice begins. There are some nice goalie drills that you can incorporate into your team practices without sacrificing the other players time. I came away from watching this video with a number of good drills. I liked the way the Coach was mic'd up and you could clearly hear everything that he said. It gave me the feeling of being on the ice with him while the drills were in progress and allowed me to hear the insight that he gives to players on even the most minor and simple parts of the game. Be prepared to invest some time watching these DVD's because you have five and a half hours of stuff to watch. I'll admit that the cost is a bit hard on the wallet and I wish these all access DVD's were 20% less expensive, but if you have the money to spend this DVD is worth the investment.
