Hello, everyone! Coach Lance here from Online Hockey Training. With over 15 years of hockey coaching experience, I've tested numerous training methods to enhance player skills. Today, I'm excited to discuss a powerful technique that has significantly impacted my athletes—the "hockey’s opposite hand effect."

Why Train with the Opposite Hand?

  • Brain Development: Learning new skills with your non-dominant hand fosters new neural connections, leading to enhanced brain function and faster thinking on the ice.
  • Improved Skill: Training with the opposite hand boosts dexterity and handling, making you a more versatile player.
  • Positive Mindset: This training method reduces frustration and increases enjoyment, crucial for excelling in sports.

After incorporating this method into our training routines, I observed that players not only improved quicker but also faced challenges with a more positive mindset. They experienced less frustration and enjoyed their practice sessions more.

What Can You Expect from Opposite Hand Training?

  • Better Hand-Eye Coordination: Training your non-dominant hand can significantly improve your coordination and reflexes.
  • Quicker Learning Curve: Players adapt faster when they learn to handle new and challenging situations.
  • Fun and Challenging: This method adds a fun and engaging twist to standard training routines.
