Offseason Hockey Development

"creating better humans, scholars, athletes"

Program outline

Offseason Hockey Development is a program created by Blake Hackbarth dedicated to preparing high-level hockey players for the next level of their careers. How frustrating is it that other sports such as football, basketball, etc get entire training programs dedicated to helping them achieve athletic success in their respective sport? As we all know you can't train a hockey player like a lineman, point guard, or body-builder for example. Train all spring & summer without breaking the bank with Certified Personal Trainer/Diet coach Blake Hackbarth who has played or coached at a plethora of levels. In addition to the training aspect, Blake Hackbarth and the entire Recruitment Hockey team will work tirelessly to ensure each athlete is in the best position to reach their goals outside the Fox Valley.

  • 7th grade - 12th grade
