Field Hockey is a fast paced game which demands a great deal of endurance and a lot of quick explosive multi-directional movements. Center of Gravity management is also a key part of the sport, that when fully understood and executing properly, can be a game changer on the field.  

How would you, or your young athlete, like to be the hockey player who dominates on the pitch, always gets to the ball first, has a big presence and makes an impact in games? Explosiveness creates more space and gives athletes more time on the ball.  It helps them burst past players & make interceptions with improved first step quickness.  It also allows them to hit, flick & stick more powerfully.

Power is the combination of strength and speed and is probably the most relevant when it comes to the hockey field, but the truth is that power comes how you train.   

If you want to play explosively, train explosively!
