During the 2017/2018 hockey season the Winkler Flyers had the opportunity to work with the high quality coaches at Rise Athletics and Wellness. The staff at Rise developed programs to help the players achieve and maintain a high level of fitness throughout the season which allowed them to perform to their potential on the ice.
“It’s been great working with the Winkler Flyers this season! Their work ethic is outstanding on the ice and in the weight room. Every player pushes hard during the workouts and they collectively work together to stay motivated and focused throughout the sessions.” – Rise Athletics and Wellness Staff.
“The goals for the in-season have been varied based around their game schedule. For example, on a busy week filled with multiple games, we are focusing on mobility, stability and light movement drills as a means of active recovery. When we have more time between games, the workouts have been higher intensity and geared towards increasing strength, power, agility, and anaerobic conditioning. In addition to the training, we have provided nutrition strategies to help increase energy levels on game days and facilitate proper recovery on the off days.”
The Flyers organization would like to thank the staff at Rise Athletics and Wellness for their support during this past season and look forward to a continued partnership in the future.
