Run, Run, and run some more!

For strength do Pushups every day. They add up.

Where are you located? If you are in San Jose (or surrounding areas) take a look into both on ice and off ice training at Sharks Ice. If you are nowhere near San Jose, call your local rink and see if they have off ice/on ice programs. The other advice posted so far is not going to hurt; running, push ups, etc..., but if you can get into hockey specific work outs, then you might get the results that you are looking for in time for the tournament.

Run or other cardio and push ups are great. Question for you though. Where exactly is the tournament? Reason I am asking is that there is a huge difference between 4000' above sea level and 7,000'. When I lived in the Bay Area I played both in Reno and in the old Olympic rink in Squaw Valley. When I played in Reno the altitude wasn't so much an issue but at Squaw we would play a Sat afternoon game and then Sunday afternoon. If I went up Sat the Sat game was fine but the Sun game was brutal. My lungs felt like peas and the lactic acid in my legs was really bad. I gather from the "209" that you are in the Stockton area and if so there isn't much you can do for training for the altitude except to get in extra good shape. I would suggest some sort of thigh and calf work. Maybe bike up hill if you can and calf raises. Also carb load before you play at altitude and it will help.

Find a nice, competitive game of ball hockey near you. I can't even begin to tell you how great that is for conditioning.

Here's a post I did about hockey fitness: http://slapshotsandchipshots.com/201...u-need-it-all/

There's a link in there to Weiss Tech Hockey which is a site I love for training ideas and basics of the game.

Go to a public skate session during a relatively unoccupied time. Work on suicides in skates, without a stick. Then work on your backwards skating and general crossovers/agility drills.
