Sadly the 2019/20 hockey season was terminated early due to COVID-19😷
Who knows if we will get a Summer Season this year? 🤷
What we do know, is that hockey WILL be back, and when we do get back on the pitch, we want to get back out there all guns blazing ready to make up for lost time 🔥🔥🔥
Physiotherapist Nicky Edwards plays for Amersham & Chalfont Hockey Club and is going to be teaching FREE online hockey specific strength and conditioning classes via Zoom 🏑💪
To improve your performance on the pitch you need to:
🏑 Develop explosive speed 💨 and strength 🏋️ to get to the ball first and win those 50/50 balls.
🏑 Develop your anaerobic energy system so that you do b of energy e.g. intercepting or counterattacking without getting
fatigued and needing recovery time (and reducing your performance on the pitch).
🏑 Develop endurance so that you can put in 110% effort for the entire game, not just the first half.
🏑 Develop flexibility 🤸 and mobility to enable you to reach that little but further to get that touch on the ball to score that
crucial goal 🥅
🏑 Develop your core stability and strength to avoid back pain and make you more powerful on the pitch and hit the ball
harder with greater accuracy 🎯
The bonus, is that you will SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE YOUR RISK OF INJURY🩸 and time off the pitch….
And you will Look Great! 🔥🔥🔥
The classes are free as we appreciate that some people may have financial difficulties at the moment. However, if your finances are good and you feel able to donate £3 (or £5 per family) per session we would like to give the money to Suzie Aries Immunotherapy Fund: Suzie Aries: Kicking Cancer's Butt. Suzie is a fellow hockey player 🏑 at East London Hockey Club and her Mum and sisters play at Wycombe Hockey Club. Suzie is fighting a rare form of Ovarian cancer and is having to privately fund a drug that is not available for ovarian cancer on the NHS 😢 So far, Suzie & her family, friends and supporters have raised over £149,000 👏 but she needs to get £250,000 to cover the 2 years of treatment she needs to save her life.
This is open to ANYONE 🧑🤝🧑 (you don't even need to be a hockey player!). All ages and abilities welcome. No equipment required as all strengthening exercises will be using body weight as resistance - you just a little bit of space to move around.
