Abstract

The purpose of this research was to produce a one year periodization model for strength and conditioning of the male collegiate hockey player. This research should expand the general knowledge base of strength and conditioning in the sport, as hockey is considered less popular and less studied than most sports. A comprehensive review of existing literature provided the cornerstone on which to build the periodization program. Additionally, training should be implemented in accordance to each individual athlete's needs analysis. Due to the hypothetical nature of this research, subject interaction was nonexistent and in turn placed a limitation upon the validity of the program. Current and prospective male collegiate hockey players are the primary beneficiaries of this research. Upon review of this program, coaches, trainers, parents, and players should all gain a deeper understanding of which energy systems and muscle groups are targeted within the periodized regime.
