Shoot the Lights out with the 5000 Puck Challenge!
Submitted By kfay on Mon 09 02, 13
How well do you think your shot would improve if you were to take 5000 shots over a 10-week period?  Think it can’t be done, think again. Shooting one hundred pucks a day, five days a week for ten weeks will help you develop your shooting & scoring skills at home. This program reinforces the concepts introduced by Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development [LTPD] which sets out a development progression or pathway for hockey players.

There’s evidence to show that daily micropractices are effective and often superior to longer practice sessions once or twice a week. When you practice a little each day, skills don’t erode. In fact, they consolidate. It’s like a bank account earning compound interest: a virtuous spiral where skill accrues quickly.

“This is a great program because it’s simple, it gives players the opportunity to take ownership of their own skill development and its fun!” said OMHA Director, Development Programs, Ian Taylor. “This program is a way to educate players, coaches, and parents on the LTPD model in a fun and easy way. “Last year OMHA Players shot the lights out!

“This is a really great initiative…my son Mitch is in the third week and he has already seen significant results…three goals in his past two games and all on great wrist shots! He is more motivated than ever now…I have to keep him from going too crazy down stairs! Thx again and keep up the great work within the OMHA.” – Hockey Parent

"I can see the improvement in my son’s shot already, so does his coach. He is on week 4 and determined to complete the program. Great idea by OMHA to motivate kids to work on their skill improvement.” – Hockey Parent

The Goal: Increase shot speed, quickness and accuracy 
The Plan: Shoot 5000 pucks in 10 weeks. That’s 100 shots a day / 5 days a week for 10 weeks!
