This clinic will consist of a instructor/player ratio of 1 to 6 totalling 2 instructors and twelve players per group. The small group atmosphere will enable players to get many quality repititons as well as quality instruction. The clinic will take place Nov. 26th at the Velocity Hockey Center in Eden Prairie.
Players will work on the following Hockey Skills:
Cost: $35.00 per player
Camp Date: Monday, December 29, 2014
ONLY 12 PLAYERS PER GROUP!
Please call Velocity 952.937.0949 if you have any questions.
Welcome to the Velocity Hockey Center 3 on 3 Program, the most popular in the Twin Cities!
This will be our 9th season running our very competitive and fun 3 on 3 here at the Velocity Hockey Center.
We will again divide the League into two halves/seasons:
Spring/Summer: March 16 to June 14, 2014
Summer/Fall: June 15 to September 10, 2014
Click on the link to find the required age Level for your 3 on 3 Team. Our 2014 League’s filled to capacity with 86 teams. In the first week of registration last year, we had over 75% of our leagues filled with teams from:
Eden Prairie, Edina, Minnetonka, Chaska/Chanhassen, Wayzata, Maple Grove, Hopkins, Orono, Lakeville, White Bear Lake, Waconia, Shakopee, Centennial to name a few. We also take AAA teams in the league.

Velocity’s Learn to Skate Program has been designed for players 3 years of age and up. “If you do not know how to skate or are just starting out, this is the program for you!”
4:1 Student to Instructor Ratio – Insures each student gets the most individualized instruction possible.
Program uses Velocity’s unique training tools to help beginning skaters improve their:
2. Edge work
4. Stride Technique
6. Holding the Stick
7. Proper playing gear
8. Getting up and down off the ice.
The Program is a combination of exercises on the floor, skating treadmill and on ice progressions, all in a fun and safe environment. Please note that we do require full hockey equipment for our Learn to Skate Program. This includes stick, gloves, helmet, shin pads, elbow pads, etc...
The Velocity Training Center is introducing a professional Pre-Season Strength and Conditioning Lacrosse Camp that will focus completely on the overall athletic development of lacrosse athletes. In this lacrosse specific camp the focus is on the proper form and techniques for lifting, sprinting and conditioning with professional instruction and close supervision. Understanding that the athletes will be at different levels of development and ability each workout is tailored to those abilities for each session. Group 1 will consist of 9th and 10th graders; Group 2 will be 11th and 12th. For some this will be an introduction into strength and conditioning and the workouts will be age appropriate and any weights lifted will be suited for their current level and abilities. Those that have been training for a few years this is an excellent opportunity to continue and advance into more intense technical lifts expanding their training knowledge and experience.
This lacrosse camp is a 10 week, 3 days a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), 32 session camp where the training protocol is designed around lacrosse specific sprinting, lifting, explosiveness, conditioning and performance; the emphasis is on Strength, Speed and Power. In addition to lifting and running, the camp will be emphasizing the importance of nutrition and sleep that each athlete needs to fully understand and implement to fully recuperate and maximize their gains.
Tuesday and Saturday: Strength and Conditioning
On Tuesday and Saturday our workout is based off an entire upper and lower body circuit with dumbbells. This is a fast pace, short rest, high repetition (12-20 reps), very intense dumbbell lifting workout that will guarantee to get the entire body metabolized and burning body fat while developing all the muscle groups and emphasizing total body muscular strength and endurance. The body will be sent into a tremendous stage of muscle recruitment to lift and stabilize the weight as the athlete progresses through a fast pace, high rep circuit. No muscle escapes the Burn!
By week 5 the athletes are prepared to lift more aggressively and are ready to use barbells with more weight to perform the basic lifts. They have developed the necessary stabilization to take the next step in their athletic development. The repetitions of the basic lifts will be in the 8-12 range, less on some lifts, designed to build more strength than the higher reps of weeks 1-4 and pack on more muscle and size. The basic lifts that will be taught, coached and supervised are, but not limited to Barbell Bench Press, Front and Back Squats, Overhead Squats, Deadlifts, Straight Leg Deadlifts and Bent Over Rows.
Thursday: Core Musculature Development-Power
Emphasis will be placed on Core Development through all phases of the training protocol. All movement begins with activating the core musculature of our body. A well-conditioned core musculature will allow for greater explosiveness (power) through a greater range of motion and allows an athlete to perform at a higher level when their body enters a stage of fatigue.
SAQ (speed, agility, quickness), Plyometric Training and Speed
This training segment is all about “Flat Out Speed!” We will focus on sprint mechanics for both lateral and lineal speed, acceleration/deceleration, hip flexibility and foot speed. Resistance band SAQ training and full body stretching will be implemented to increase range of motion, lengthen sprinting stride and increase foot speed. Emphasis is placed on stabilizing and developing the hips, glutes, hamstrings and calves. Unless the body is conditioned and trained to move through that greater range of motion it simply will not go there. If the body has not gone there before it needs to be manipulated, pushed and forced there through controllable, constant and consistent stretching tension allowing those muscle groups to open up. Resistance bands do an exceptional job at providing this controllable tension. Plyometric training causes an increase in maximum rate of force development. We will use exercises that enable a muscle to reach maximum strength in as short a time as possible by working the fast twitch composition of the muscle. These are quick powerful movements that will require strength and stabilization, especially in the hips, to maximize explosiveness. Muscle elasticity, “flexibility”, is an important factor in the production of more power. A series of ground based flexibility exercises will be performed to increase flexibility and range of motion. The athletes will be performing plyometric and athletic exercises such as; Broad Jumping, Bounding, Lateral Jumps and Sprint Starts with and without resistance bands. I will also introduce band resisted Speed Board work designed to increase foot speed and faster lateral movements. Plyo boxes will be used for a variety of jumps and we will be using a variety hurdles to increase functional movement and athleticism.
The Velocity Lacrosse Pre-Season Training camp is an excellent opportunity for lacrosse athletes to prepare for the upcoming season in a fun, safe, productive environment with professional supervision. Feel free to join individually or join with some friends. This is a great way to train together and carpool, plus the boys can talk about how sore they are the first couple weeks.
