Getting back into hockey for senior year
I stopped playing hockey in 2006 and began to ref instead however one of my friends told me I should try out for the high school team. Its my senior year and I've done no sports in high school so I figured it couldn't hurt to try out. I'm a decent skater (reffing has helped) and I'm working on my shot however I'm pretty weak overall. I've joined the YMCA and have been going everyday however the most I can lift is 40-50 lbs. I need to get stronger not just to make the team but because its a club high school league and half the kids act like morons and I need to be able to defend myself. Any tips on how to be ready in time for tryouts in (late) September?

Ya bro ive got a few:

Skate, Skate, Skate, ( work on your skating as much as you can and skate every chance you get)

Shoot atleast 150 -250 pucks (not balls) a day, aim for 1000+ per week.

Drink lots of water.

Stickhandle like crazy, spend at least 30 mintutes a day, use a ball and use a heavy stick, do it stationary and while moving and keep your head up ! Also tape 2 pucks to the bottom of your stick and stickhandle with it.

Just to add to the shooting tip use a heavier puck.

Work out your core muscles and focus on you leg and foot muscles.

Jog everyday for 30 mins minutes.

Thanks, I was thinking along the same lines. I'm not to concerned about making the team though haha. I'm good friends with the coach and he knows that I know pretty much every ref in the league (including my dad). I just want to be prepared should I make the team. We've been state champs the past two years however our best players the past two seasons left this year so kinda low expectations for us this year haha.
This is one of those players...
