4 Basic Skills to Enjoy the Game and to Develop as a Player with Marc Andréby Hockey without Borders
Having fun while playing hockey is truly important, just as important as developing your basic skill set. Let's be honest, we can enjoy playing but if your game is above the rest, you might just enjoy it a bit more.
There are four basic skills to enhance your game. Physical, technical, mental, and systematic. When playing hockey, there are physical aspects that you need to take into consideration. What is your physical strength, speed, and reach?
The technical part covers how well you can handle a puck, your maneuverability, and your ability to cut corners and make pivots. Making a pass as well as receiving a pass, faking a shot, and taking a shot. All are a part of your technical game, all are a factor to your success on the ice.
Your mental game is just as important as anything else when it comes to sports. How you face adversity and deal with the pressures that come with the game. Lastly, the systematic and technical part of the game. Arguably the coach's favorite, how do you play a 5v5? How do we counter? What's the power play strategy? How do you approach a 1v1 situation? Hockey is a team sport however without any individual tactic, it's nearly impossible to contribute to the team.
