We're thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for our athletes. The Knights Organization has partnered with Power Edge Pro (PEP) for advanced on-ice training.
The foundation of the PEP skillset, Reactive Countering Training™ forces players to develop evasive skating techniques, increased reaction time, and respond faster to create more opportunities.
What will PEP do for our Knights?
Reactive Countering Training™ - The foundation of the PEP skillset, Reactive Countering Training™ forces players to develop evasive skating techniques, increased reaction time, and respond faster to create more opportunities.
Extreme Multi-Tasking - PEP circuits are designed to overload a player’s motor skills. The goal is to simulate the pressures of real game situations and force players to manage multiple skills simultaneously. The hands, feet and brain work together under extreme pressure to improve drill execution and overall game performance.
Reactive Linear Cross Overs™ - What is your stride to crossover ratio? The top 25 NHL players crossover once every 4 strides, compared to once every 12-14 strides for the average third or fourth line NHLer. This enables players like Connor McDavid to accelerate on the rush, weave in-and-out of traffic and always maintain forward momentum.
The PEP Reactive Linear Crossover circuit was created to develop elite level Linear Crossovers as it forces the skater to develop a low stride to crossover ratio.
Knights FREE PEP Clinics
Starting in November, 2020, the Knights organization will be hosting free PEP clinics each Friday. In order to keep the sessions age appropriate and to comply with the GCCC's rink capacity, we will alternate age groups every week. Signups will be emailed out each week.
These clinics are limited to 30 skaters per session. All participants are required to follow the 2020 COVID guidelines.
If you are not receiving updates about these clinics, make sure you are signed up as a guardian in your Knights account on CKhockey.org. If you are still having trouble, you can contact Lindsay Bolton at Boltons1215@gmail.com.
