STRENGTH — the growth rate of muscular strength increases from 12-15 years during the period of sexual development of a hockey player. Intense strength development starts when the player turns 15-18!!!
STAMINA — the ability of a hockey player to carry out activity with moderate intensity for prolonged periods of time. The greatest development is observed when the player turns 15-17!!!
STARTING SPEED — the principle of movement in hockey is based on frequent acceleration and change in the direction of the movement.
SNIPER SHOT — not less than 500 shots must be carried out daily!!! Cans and bottles can be used as targets. You will see an effective result in 3 months!!!

According to Slovak specialists of the Academy this is exactly what
boys need during the period from 15 to 18 years old!!!
This is what the player should choose to develop in an increased pace, more than he does during training sessions!!!
Try and you will succeed.
