HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING with LARRY PEDRIE   at

Centerpoint Community Ice: Independence Events Center

May 30th – June 4th

 

           

High Intensity Training Program

Welcome to the High Intensity Training Program (HIT), operated by LARRY PEDRIE.   

This program is designed for the elite level travel player that is serious and dedicated about his development, and willing to put in the effort to become a better player.  This program is not for the recreational or house level player and HIT will accept only players with travel hockey experience who are serious and dedicated hockey players.

The purpose of the HIT Camp will be to train, teach, and improve the skills and concepts for all players.  This goal is achieved by combining the best players with elite level coaching.  Through this structure, the players will compete with and against top competition, and will be afforded repeated drilling and instruction that will steer their development and understanding of the game to a higher level.

I believe that the most optimal way to improve players is to conduct practices at a game-tempo, high intensity pace, where all players are kept moving.  All of the practices in the HIT program will follow that principle.  I believe in pushing players to give their best, and I demand their best effort every time they are on the ice.  I have also learned that when players are put in a competitive, structured, positive environment, their improvement accelerates exponentially and they enjoy a practice that is always moving.

The Program will focus on both skill and team concept development.  From a skills standpoint, we will work on skating, passing, puck handling, and shooting.  We will work on proper technique and execution for each of these skills.  The proper technique will be taught and drilled repeatedly throughout the week.  From a team concept, we will work on offensive zone entries for multiple player (2 and 3 man rushes) and 1 on 1 rushes.  We will also cover how to defend each of these situations from the defensive side of the puck.

The Program will include a daily lecture covering topics such as 1 on 1 battles, attacking the offensive zone, defending the offensive rush, junior hockey, and college hockey.

The Program structure will also include a daily 40 minute Off Ice workout.  These workouts will be full body workouts with a heavy emphasis on core body development, critical to the success and growth of all young hockey players.  These off ice workouts will be very demanding and challenging, and will also educate the players on the off-ice commitment that is required for on ice improvement and success.

Cost & Registration

The cost for the KC HIT Program is $275.  For those players that would like to include the extra skill session component the additional cost is $150.  Total cost for the HIT Program and extra skills session is $425.

Registration will be limited to the first 30 players per group. so sign up ASAP!

Registration is online ONLY and can be done at www.lphockey.com.

 Larry’s Bio

Larry Pedrie has been coaching professionally for over 30 years.  Larry’s coaching career began in 1981 at Ferris State University after Larry’s graduation from Ferris earlier that year where he was a 4-year letter winner for the Bulldogs from 1977- 1981.  Larry then spent the next 15 years as a Division I college hockey coach, including
9 years as an assistant coach with stops at FSU (81-84), The University of Illinois at Chicago (84-87), and The University of Michigan (87-90).  During Larry’s time as a Division I assistant coach he developed a reputation as one of the top recruiters in college hockey in both recognizing talent and successfully recruiting that talent to his institution. 

Larry became a Division I head coach in 1990 at UIC (‘90-’96) and held that position for six years.  When UIC dropped hockey in 1996, Larry was offered a coaching
position at the USNTDP in Ann Arbor in the program’s inaugural season under then Head Coach Jeff Jackson (current Head Coach at the University of Notre Dame).  Larry declined the offer and since that time has been involved in youth hockey in Chicago. 

Larry is passionate about player development and advancement and continues to work and build programs that remain at the highest level in North America.

2016 Defenseman Camp

 LP HOCKEY

Center Ice of DuPage, July 11-15, 2016

 

Just Defenseman Camp director Larry Pedrie is a former defenseman and played this position his entire career. Larry’s 30+ years of playing and coaching experience gives him the unique background, qualities, and understanding necessary to teach the fine points of the most difficult position in hockey.

Thoughts on Defensemen:

Good defensemen can be difficult to find because not many coaches truly understand how to teach the position, and young players are challenged to find proper instruction.

Good defensemen simplified are mobile on their feet, very good 1 on 1 players, and very effective at making the first pass to get their team moving up the ice.

The value of a good defenseman cannot be emphasized enough.  They are their team’s first line of defense and the beginning of their team’s offense.  Their performance can also go widely unnoticed, as they don’t often show up on the scoresheet , and there is not tangible stat or reward for effectively defending.

Strong defensemen skill traits include strong passing skills, the ability to handle the puck in tight spaces, the ability to use their stick effectively when not possessing the puck, and strong forward and skating backward skills.

Strong defensemen concepts include the ability to evaluate the entire ice surface from both a defensive and offensive standpoint, being able to handle the puck well under pressure in critical areas of the ice, how to create/control proper gap control, how to read a rush, how to defend a one-on-one in all areas, and to know when to add and join offense at the appropriate time.

Camp Focus/Skills….                                                                                Camp Focus/Concepts….

Forward Skating agility, quickness, and speed.                                     Transitioning the puck from defense to offense

Backward Skating agility, quickness, and speed                                   How to play along the boards

Passing/Shooting/Puckhandling                                                                      How to create/control a proper gap

                                                                                                                              How to positonally defend all rushes

 

Benefits of this Camp

All defensemen at the youth level need to improve in some, if not most areas of their game.  It’s likely a young player has not received specific defenseman positional instruction in many of the areas that are necessary for understanding the position.  The many skills and concepts that playing defense requires are what make it such a challenging, unique, difficult, and fun position to play.  This Camp will provide the instruction for defensemen that too often goes overlooked throughout the course of a normal season.

Camp Format

The Camp will be structured so all players will be matched with and against each other based on common size, age, and experience.  All skaters will receive an off ice lecture, on ice instruction, and an off ice workout.

BATTLE CAMP 2016

 Center Ice of DuPage, August 1-5, 2016

 

This summer LP Hockey will be returning the very popular “Battle Camp” for its 4th season.

The purpose of the Battle Camp is to expose, teach, and drill one of the most critical parts of the game of hockey….the ability to successfully battle in all areas of the ice.

Many elements go into the skills and characteristics of the game’s best players; one of those characteristics is the ability to battle and win a majority of your battles.  Success in battles comes from physical strength, mental strength, and simple techniques and tactics that any player can learn, acquire, and use every time he is on the ice.  It is these battle techniques and tactics that I will teach and drill in this Camp.  I will also encourage and foster a mentality to improve the metal toughness of every player.

At all levels of hockey, in every game played, there are battles and puck races that occur over and over.  As players get older, and the overall skill level begins to even itself out, these repeated battles and puck races become more frequent and begin to take on a greater and greater importance.

As young players grow and get physically bigger, open ice decreases, the time to make decisions shrinks, and there is more traffic an d confrontation up and down the ice.  If young players are not capable of playing in traffic, winning puck races, and winning puck battles, their overall effectiveness is greatly reduced.  It is not a coincidence when certain players “seem” to have the puck more often than others.  Players that “seem” to have the puck a lot have it because they go and get it!  These players have the ability to pursue and successfully battle for pucks, and that is an extremely valuable attribute that will greatly enhance the performance and success for any player.

The ability for any player to successfully battle for and win pucks cannot be overvalued.  All great players have this attribute and for some it is the one attribute that repeatedly elevates them above more skilled players.

In Battle Camp 2016 I will teach battle skills and use a variety of drills to help all players become improved battlers!  In addition to the skills that will be taught, and the confrontation that will be drilled, the mindset that goes part and parcel with battle skills will be fostered and promoted and will be underscored as a critical part of this skill.

Drills of Battle Camp 2016

1 on 1:                     corner   short race            net front                angling/forecheck

2 on 2:                     corner   tight space          net front

Camp Format

In the Battle Camp players will be matched with and against each other based on common size, age, and experience.  All players will receive on ice instruction, and an off ice workout.

                            SHOOTING CAMP 2016                                                      

   Center Ice of DuPage, August 1-5, 2016

INTRODUCTION

LP Hockey will be offering Shooting Camp 2016 this summer at Center Ice of Dupage.  The Camp will be a week-long camp that focuses on the wrist, snap, and slap shots.  The camp will include specific instruction in all proper shooting mechanics for each shot, and all shots will be drilled repeatedly throughout the week.

Over the course of 5 days players will shoot thousands of pucks and will be monitored and taught on a daily basis.  Players will shoot form both a stationary and moving position.

Many players learn to shoot on their own with little to no instruction.  Some players are fortunate enough to develop proper shooting mechanics, but unfortunately this good fortune does not fall upon all players.  Too many players shoot improperly, are never taught correctly, and then fall in the habit of incorrect muscle memory which will never allow players to shoot at 100% of their capacity.  It is these improper mechanics that I will correct and drill, and make certain each player understands how to shoot properly.

CAMP FORMAT

The Camp will run for 5 consecutive days under the following schedule and rink location:

Center Ice of DuPage, Aug. 1-5, 2016      4:40—5:40PM (you may combine with Battle for $425)

Cost:       The cost of the Shooting Camp is $225.

*The Shooting Camp will immediately follow my Battle Camp (cost $275).  You may combine both camps for a cost of $425.
