On-Ice Speed Agility and Quickness (SAQ) Sessions – Available in Brandon

On-Ice SAQ is designed to work on speed, agility and quickness training on the ice. In these sessions we use a variety of methods to enhance foot speed/agility, conditioning, power, and quickness. Many of our athletes have reported that the On-Ice SAQ sessions help them to transfer what they’ve learned in the gym to functional movement patterns on the ice. On-Ice SAQ sessions not only focus on functional movements patterns through skating, but they also feature skill development. We recommend that these sessions do not replace your current dry-land SAQ sessions.

These sessions will feature coaches who are experienced in both strength and conditioning and hockey, Paul Thompson (Brandon Head Strength Coach & former SW Cougar) along with other Outperforme representatives. The sessions will run in one block, Wednesday mornings from July 3rd - August 14th (7 sessions). The schedule can be seen below. Sessions are separated into 3 groups during the same ice-time. We will have a younger group together ages 10-14 and an older group age 15 & up. On-Ice SAQ is something we encourage our athletes to do as it both extremely beneficial for their offseason training and it is also a fun atmosphere with a chance for athletes to have some friendly competition.

In terms of billing we sell On-Ice SAQ as one package with 7 sessions. Price can be seen below. ON-ICE SAQ PACKAGES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. The only exception being a medical condition that prevents training. Packages can be prorated under the following circumstance: they have to leave early in August for the start of their season. In this case Paul or Maddie needs to be notified so the package can be billed appropriately. Beyond this exception the package is purchased as 7 sessions. If your package is not purchased online prior to June 26th, 2019 then you will be invoiced and billed for it.
