  • With the winter hockey season behind us, it is time to start thinking about 'off-season' development. As important as rest is, inactivity is not a productive use of time¬†for young athletes trying to excel¬†at their sports and¬†improve general athleticism. Whether¬†it is working on skills specific to your¬†'main sport' or working on growing the base of your general athletic skills, you can recover from your winter hockey¬†season while taking part in activities other than hockey.

As we look down the road to the spring, we want to ensure everyone is aware of our off-season training programs at the Edge School/Duckett Performance Centre. Beginning April 8th, our Young Guns  program will enable grade 3-7 athletes to do off-ice training 2-3 times each week. Sessions will be held at 3:30-430 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:30-6:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 11 am on Saturdays, until June 15th.

Each 60-minute Young Guns session includes movement skill training, neuromuscular strength training, conditioning and flexibility. Throughout the 10-week Spring block (April 8-June 15), competition and fun will also remain central to our development process.

Our program packages are flexible and customizable to ensure that there is a plan that fits every athlete. For more information or to register, click the link below. If you have questions about customized packages please contact Ross at for details.

  • We are 2 weeks out from playoffs and @huffman__adam and @er342 have the @edgeprepbasketball acute:chronic workload ratios (ACWR) locked in.

ACWR is calculated by dividing the previous week’s workload by the average workload of the previous 4 weeks. Being in the sweet spot, the green area marked in the graph, is ideal for development and injury reduction. Working outside of the green zone increases risk of injury.

The ACWR can be calculated using internal or external workload values. With the @edgeprepbasketball team we are using @polarglobal heart rate monitors during every bout of exercise to track workload. #yyc #strengthandconditioning #basketball @underarmourca @nikebasketball @niketraining @nike @nikeeyb #paytheman #todayfortomorrow @npacanada @northpolehoops

Why is youth training important for your child?

Strength and conditioning for prepubescent athletes has shown to have profound effects on strength, coordination, confidence and bone mineral density development. Due to the sensitivity of the young nervous system, this is the ideal time to beginning training movement patterns and neuromuscular development through exposure to a wide variety to movements and shapes. This approach helps expand the bandwidth of the athlete’s physical vocabulary and diversifies their motor potential.
