Off-Ice Training

Incorporating fitness training into our programs ensures that Canadians are getting the appropriate level of physical activity, as outlined in Health Canada’s “Guide to Physical Activity for Youth”.  It also helps ensure that our members are doing all that they can to achieve their own level of personal excellence – in whatever Ice Palace program they are enrolled.

Fitness classes for young children focus on fun, games and group participation. As athletes develop, training becomes more specific and includes the following areas:

  1. Core Stability/Strength Training/Functional Movement
  2. Aerobic / Anaerobic Training
  3. Flexibility Training
  4. Creative Movement / Dance Movement
  5. Nutrition
  6. Mental Training
