The season is over and you now have more of the world’s most scare resource, time. It’s a time when we could sleep in with the absence of weekend practice and tournaments. We might loosen our belts and let our healthy food choices slip. Maybe we will pick up a new hobby, sport, language, or instrument.
So the question remains, what do I do in the postseason? First off, relax. Your body needs avoid strenuous activities, it’s normal. It is important to let your muscles recover from the rigorous workouts and season long training.
Avoiding losing your stick skills and conditioning is obviously important. Practicing once a week with a friend and working on conditioning on your own is recommended. On the mental side, set goals so that when you have an idea of what you are aiming for next season. If your skills lacked during season, take some time out of your day to go over dodges (pull left/right, spin moves, etc.) If your conditioning wasn’t up to speed, pay close attention to the conditioning packet that your coach gives you.
Holiday season is upon us, feel free to chill out, enjoy your time off. Spending time with family and friends is what this season is all about! Most of all, once January hits get focused because preseason is right around the corner.
