OUR OWN HIGH-LEVEL TRAINING SYSTEM:

• physical training;
• technical training; 
• tactical training; 
• theoretical training; 
• psychological preparation.

DAILY PLAYER ANALYTICS

The development of new technologies establishes new methods for collecting and analysing data. This leads to a deeper and more efficient evaluation of a player. Hockey analytics is one of the main keys to players’ accelerated development. The accumulation of the data allows the teaching staff to determine what training works and which does not; what strengths and weaknesses a player possesses and how they can be improved; what are the current technological trends that can be implemented to increase performance. All of the above information allows coaches to train players in the most effective and productive way.

INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM SKILLS

The academy goal is to teach players all the tricks and passes
of the puck. To practice their shots at different speeds, as well asin a limited amount of space. They must be able to intercept the puck; carry out group and team tactical actions in attack and defence positions in each ice zone; in addition to creating numerical superiority in a limited area of the site.

FORMING THE RIGHT HABITS 

SUCH AS PROPER NUTRITION,
REST AND RELAXATION CULTURE; IN ADDITION
TO BUILDING TEAM WORK AND CREATING
LONG-TERM CONNECTIONS.

Every hockey player is already required to follow the professional rules of conduct on the ice, as well
as off the ice.

PSYCHOLOGICAL AND MENTAL PREPARATION OF A PLAYER

• assessment of a player's personal characteristics - his character, temperament, personality, interests, level of hockey ambitions, etc.;

 social aspects of the individual and the team - the psychological climate in the sports team, the formation
of interpersonal relationships;


• assessment of the player's maximum capabilities;
 

• assessment of the mental state of the player and its modulation;

• the means of achieving maximum or optimal mental performance of the player;

• reasons for using a particular form of rehab after an intense training session; important tournaments and a difficult sports season

FULL GAME SEASON OF AT LEAST 50 GAMES (EIHL, AS WELL AS 3-5 ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL PRO TOURNAMENTS)

The games may be attended by scouts from the leading hockey countries.
AlAin Academy has its own AS (a licensed European sports agency), which can contribute to the employment of academy graduates in clubs of North America and Europe in the future. This opportunity gives the athletes additional motivation and
a great chance to get into one of the leading clubs in the world upon completion of the academy.

Our comfortable accommodation, shooting centre, gym, special sports nutrition and English teaching programs are perfectly adjusted to the needs of our young talents. The same applies for our recreational room, round-the-clock medical care and modern gaming diagnostics.
