The Amarillo Hockey Association is pleased to present the 5000 Puck Challenge for their members. The program was created as a development opportunity for hockey players to develop their shooting & scoring skills at home.
There is evidence to show that daily micro-practices are effective and often superior to longer practice sessions once or twice a week. When you practice a little each day, skills do not erode. In fact, they consolidate. It is like a bank account earning compound interest: a virtuous spiral where skill accrues quickly.
How well do you think your shot would improve if you were to take 5000 shots over a 10-week period?
Do you think it can be done? Here is a simplified plan for players of all ages and abilities to follow over 10 weeks to accomplish this goal.
GOAL: Increase shot speed, quickness and accuracy = SCORING MORE GOALS!
The Plan: Shoot 5000 pucks in 10 weeks
Weekly Goal: 500 shots per week
Daily Goal: 100 shots per day (5 days per week)- or more if you choose!
Dates: December 1st, 2017 – February 11th, 2018 (Hockey Day in Texas)
Signed tracking form due February 9th, 2018. (please turn into your coach)
