Advantages of playing Street Hockey

I've heard the argument that "street hockey makes bad habits for ice hockey players".

I think this is hogwash.

Street Hockey will always do these things for you.-

  •  Learn how to work as a team, specifically making and receiving passes
  •  Examine where to best position your body against a defender
  •  See if you can get better at carrying the puck (or ball) with your head up, and quicken your hands.
  •  Improve your overall conditioning.
  •  Develop competitiveness and enhance your athleticism.
  •  FUN.

  • Think of it this way...
    * If you aren't playing street hockey, what are you doing, and how will the alternative improve your game. Playing xbox, going to the beach or the movies.... these activities are fun but have never been the training program of choice for pro athletes.
