Overspeed Training Program

Summer 2024
This program is sold out. Please join our  WaitList.

The goal of this program is to improve athletes’ explosiveness, speed, balance, and skating form. Athletes will be pushed outside of their comfort zone to reach new levels of speed in their games and ultimately become more dynamic hockey players.

This style of on-ice training was developed by the legendary trainer, Jack Blatherwick. Jack has trained hundreds of Division 1 and professional hockey players, and has worked closely with Breakaway Academy’s coaches to help develop the curriculum for this program.

In the game of hockey, speed is vital; this program will help players breakthrough and level up their skating.
