Yea, but you didnt answer the guy's question. Its like you passed a weekend personal trainer course and wanted to tell him about that. You absolutely DID suggest that he would be ahead of most kids if he was on the ice 2x per week but the OP clearly mentioned that he was in an elite level program. 2x per week is freakin' house league.

Re: squats and deadlifts...I probably worded my response wrong. I meant to say agility and core excercices. Squats and deadlifts at 12 arent as crucial.

At the end of the day any kid who has committed to an elite level program is going to need to commit at least 3 practices per week plus games. That is why it is important to choose the program based on their practices. Also, the kid has to have the right mindset and accept being pushed.
