Junior High-Performance Program
Relentless Hockey’s 9 Week Junior High-Performance Program is specifically designed for the development needs of pre-draft players (under 18).
With small group sessions, this program allows for individualization and hands-on coaching to address player’s development needs. This program is structured enhance the off-ice characteristics that translate to on-ice performance and specifically enhance the traits that support players transition to thriving in the Junior game. Emphasis is placed on strength development, while also enhancing the speed and athleticism needed to thrive at Junior and beyond.
Our 2017 program saw all players increase their fitness testing measures 20-40%, including multiple players recording: strength increase 15-30%, lean muscles gains of 10-15+ lbs, setting record conditioning testing scores at team training camps, and eliminating past nagging-injuries completely.
In partnership with the Burlington’s premier athlete development facility, the Elite Performance Center, this is the pinnacle program for elite players looking for a huge development summer to take their performance to the next level in September.
Our Off-Season Programs offer 3 or 4 workouts per week, running roughly 75 minutes and including both individualized and group work. Group size is limited (10 athletes maximum) and will include at least 2 coaches per group, including program director Kyle Kokotailo.
Each session will include both individualized portions (allowing for players to address their individual development needs) and group portions (allow players to compete against each other). Sessions will typically include:
Tissue Work, Mobility, “Pre-Hab” care (Individualized)
Speed, Agility, & Athletic Development / Competition Drills (As Group)
Strength & Power Development (Individualized)
Conditioning & Energy System Development (As Group)
Core and Mobility (Individualized/Group)
Before or after each scheduled session, players are welcome to play Spikeball, work on stickhandling, or get extra mobility work.
Additional Program Features:
Structural and Mobility Assessment from the Elite Performance Center’s therapy team. Ongoing access to therapists for on-site assessments.
Data tracking through the Relentless Hockey App - Each player will have an individual account to allow them to track each workout and actively track their progress throughout the summer. Players also have mobility “homework” to complete on off-days.
