Our Philosophy

Here at the RINK, we believe that each athlete has a unique approach to their respective roles on the ice. While any position encompasses a vast array of technical, physiological and psychological inputs, each athlete assembles a distinct bundle of performance assets. When working with any client, our emphasis is to work within the confines of each customer’s approach…regardless of “style”. While there are fundamentals that must be instilled in any approach, and at all levels of play, the RINK believes in working within the context of the specific athlete’s game.

Our Approach

As an athlete progresses through his/her career, countless unique experiences are implanted upon this player’s mind. Through these experiences, hockey players begin to build an approach. This approach combines these experiences with core fundamentals and the individual’s distinct strengths and limitations. During a RINK experience, athletes will seek to hone, refine and repackage this distinct approach. A combination of technical enhancements and physiological guidance (where necessary) will, in turn, drive one’s psychological game forward. Technical, physiological, psychological training.

Off-Ice Development with Testify Performance

We take a multi-faceted approach to in-season off-ice development. The process begins with player profiling consisting of both off-ice and on-ice testing, a group focused needs analysis, and collaborative goal setting between our professionals, the RINK Player and Goalie Development teams, and coaches. 

Our professionals will help educate players along the way on proper warm-up/activation & cool down/recovery techniques to ensure that they are prepared for the high demands of the season.  Our periodized off-season program will make sure that player's are not only improving but peaking at the right time. Team education seminars on topics such as nutrition and hydration, sleep and recovery, as well as in game respiratory techniques are also available for groups looking to take their performance to the next level.
