Practice! Practice! Practice!

General physical training (GPT) is a system of exercises aimed at harmonious development of all physical qualities of a person: muscle strength, endurance, agility, flexibility and coordination. The most important thing is to avoid a narrow focus and excessive development of only one physical quality to the detriment of others. In the basis of classes, there can be different kinds of sports or individual sets of exercises. The emphasis is on natural types of movements, their variations and combinations: elements of gymnastics, running, various types of walking, jumping, throwing, climbing, swimming, mobile and sports games. Exercises can be performed both without use of objects, and with use of additional equipment (balls, hoops, skipping ropes, gymnastic wall, benches, treadmill).

GPT - the foundation of the physical health of the body, the first step on the road to big sport and an important component of the training of professionals. There are no age restrictions for classes. Modern hockey is a game with high speeds and an abundance of power combats, and there is an opinion that the latter is a big hindrance for fast attackers.

However, the real master just needs to prove the superiority of speed over force, and not just the speed of movement, but first the speed of thinking. For all time I saw countless examples where players with good inclinations in speed lost those people who could never boast of high-speed qualities circumvented their advantage and them. I am convinced that each person is able to improve his speed potential if he pays due attention to training. It is important to understand that fast movements with your feet (fast legs) do not guarantee you fast speed on the site. When the next time you visit a hockey game, pay attention to the players who work very fast with their feet - in almost all cases they have fairly average speed. Conversely, high-speed players do not work with their feet as they are, they have much less movements, but they are much more powerful. When parents say, "I want my child to have fast legs" -that means he wants the child to have good speed / acceleration. It is important to understand the difference in speed and speed of footwork.

Coach Andrei Rusetsky, a variety of exercises that allow developing an individual quality in isolation, increase the effectiveness of the training process. Training with him will raise the level of general endurance, strengthen the musculoskeletal system, enhance the player's strength training, and speed of reaction. The training process is built in accordance with the basic principles of the compatibility of physical qualities, and always aimed precisely at solving the tasks that are facing the young hockey player during the game. Control over the functional state will allow selecting the intensity and volume of training influences for each athlete.

Andrei Rusetsky, born in 1988 Master of Sports of Belarus in Athletics. He graduated from BSU FC with a degree in coach and teacher.

Are you dreaming that your son will become a man, a real man – clever, strong, brave, noble, who knows such words as “honour”, “credit”, “help” and “support”? Then let him play ice-hockey.

Strength, speed, dexterity, stamina, plasticity – these are the main qualities that ice-hockey player develops through the game. Many specialists think that ice-hockey is the combination of all these qualities. Players need to have good coordination skills during a match, moreover, they should be able to skate quickly, as well as to jump, to duck out of the power fight! That’s why a child who plays ice-hockey develops great stamina. To be a good ice-hockey player means being an athlete, an acrobat and a good skater at the same time.

But ice-hockey is not only the combination of these complicated elements, it is a game in the first place. It is a team game! One for all, and all for one. You can’t do it another way. Apart form that a child will learn different skating manoeuvres and start thinking how to outplay the opponent, he will get used to play in a team, he will learn what men’s friendship, support and help is. Apart from that your son will get used to hard work.

Welcome to ice-hockey!
