Common drills used to evaluate hockey players.
Evaluation of linear speed, acceleration, and power on ice. Athlete skates from the Red Line to the opposing Blue Line. Simple drill to measure break away speed. You can also add a puck!
Pro-Agility on the ICE
Adaptation of the standard Pro-Agility for the ice is designed to test a player's ability to transition from defense to offense quickly and efficiently. It involves a player starting from a stationary position on the blue line, skating forward to the red line, stopping, and then quickly turning around and skating back to the blue line. The player must then stop and pivot again, before skating forward to the red line once more. This drill is often used in tryouts and training camps to evaluate a player's speed, agility, and ability to change direction quickly.
The vertical jump test is a test of lower body power and has been performed for over 100 years. When using Dashr|Jump hardware for this test you will need a Vertec or similar vane based system, and we will make it smart! You can also manually enter jump measurements into the Dashr app. You can record both standing vertical and approach (max) vertical through the app.
Getting biometric/anthropometric data on your athletes is key for both evaluation and tracking progress. You can record bio data manually through the Dashr app, or you can use our BioStation to automate these measurements.
