As it currently stands in the hockey strength and conditioning world today there just isn’t near enough quality youth training and nutrition advice on the market as there should be. <br /><br />The information and workouts found online are almost always designed with the pro athlete in mind using extremely advanced techniques, heavy weight loads and gym equipment that the average person doesn’t have access to (and the youth athlete shouldn’t be doing anyways). <br /><br />Youth athletes can and should be doing additional training if they are serious about their athletic development. On top of this, they should also be eating more like athletes as well. <br /><br />This is where parents or coaches normally start thinking:<br /><br />“Well I don’t want my team lifting heavy weights every day after school, or even at all”<br />“My son is 11 years old! He is not going to eat perfect, that’s impossible!”<br /><br />You know what? You’re absolutely right. The keys to youth athletic development are:<br /><br />#1: It has to be fun. <br />#2: It has to be safe.<br />#3: It has to improve performance.<br /><br />The order of importance probably comes in that order as well. Those three have to be in place for it to be effective, fun and good for long-term use. The problem I see is too many coaches offer too much of one category, and not enough of the others. <br /><br />In this Youth Hockey Training guide we will teach you, as a hockey parent, how to help your child train safely and effectively, and how to eat properly as a young hockey player to set him/her up for future success on the ice and in life<br /><br />Many hockey parents think that they shouldn't worry about this stuff until their son or daughter is older, but the fact is that you will be doing your child a disservice if you don’t help them out with their hockey training at a young age.<br /><br />Get started now by reading our Youth Hockey Training Guide, which also gives you full access to our members area to access bonus information and youth hockey training videos.

“Inside Hockey is very proud to be associated with both Darryl Houston Smith and Janet Eagleson, two award-winning hockey writers who are among the most admired and respected writers in our industry,” said Kevin Greenstein, Editor in Chief at InsideHockey.com. “The team overviews read like a cross between high level scouting meetings and a comedy routine. Who knew hockey stats could be so entertaining?”<br /><br />Inside Hockey Fantasy Guide 2017-18 provides all the tools serious fantasy owners need to develop a draft plan and keep to it once the chaos of the initial weeks commences. It does it with a blend of humor and intelligence that sets it apart from its competitors. Darryl Houston Smith, an NHL-accredited writer and contributor to InsideHockey.com and Rotowire.com, shares a number of strategies he has developed over the years for building a winning team and keeping it that way. Two of his patented tools are included: the Bobby-Orr strategem for choosing defensemen and the Fugazi, a player who appears to be fantasy gold, but who might just prove to be little more than foolish glitter. Houston Smith also reveals how fantasy owners can take control of the NHL schedule and use it to win a title.<br /><br />“The Inside Hockey Fantasy Guide provides fantasy players, including keeper leaguers, with the insights they need to take their team and season from good to great,” said Janet Eagleson, four-time Hockey Writer of the Year from Fantasy Sports Writers Association (FSWA) and Senior Hockey Writer at Rotowire.com. Eagleson’s approach is direct and blunt, and more than one of her readers has drawn parallels between her style and that of the bombastic Don Cherry, regular NHL commentator on Canada’s Hockey Night in Canada. “I’d rather be contrarian and win, than liked and lose,” continued Eagleson.<br /><br />Inside Hockey Fantasy Guide 2017-18 was written by fantasy hockey experts for all levels and types of fantasy players. Everyone from keeper-league owners to daily players will find insights into the league’s major players that will make winning their leagues easier.

<DIV><EM>We Did Everything But Win: An Oral History of the Emile Francis Era New York Rangers (1964–1976)</EM> is an entertaining account of one of the most exciting and unforgettable periods in the history of the Broadway Blueshirts as told by Francis as well as several of his players.<BR><BR>George Grimm chronicles each season of the Francis era when “The Cat” transformed them from perennial league doormats to a team that made it to the Stanley Cup playoffs for nine consecutive seasons, including a Finals appearance in 1972. There are also chapters detailing Emile’s playing career and his hiring as general manager as well as the aftermath of his dismissal and an analysis of his tenure behind the bench and as GM. It was during those years that the National Hockey League doubled in size and the Rangers moved into a brand-new Madison Square Garden. As the popularity of the National Hockey League skyrocketed, who could forget the Rangers’ battles on the ice with Boston’s Big Bad Bruins and Philadelphia’s Broad Street Bullies and showdowns with the Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Black Hawks? All the great moments are here including a heart-stopping, triple-overtime victory in the 1971 playoffs and Vic Hadfield’s 50th goal the following season. <BR><BR><EM>We Did Everything But Win</EM> is a tribute to the Rangers of that era; Jacques Plante and Marcel Paille, Eddie Giacomin and Gilles Villemure, Harry Howell and Jim “The Chief” Neilson, “The Old Smoothies,” the “G-A-G Line,” and the “Bulldog Line.” It’s the story of colorful players with nicknames like “Boomer,” “Stemmer,” and “Sarge” and fan favorites such as Brad Park, Rod Gilbert, Jean Ratelle, Walt Tkaczuk. It’s all here—the highs and the lows, the inspiring victories, the devastating losses, and the funny moments along the way. <BR></DIV>

The John Scott story is the ultimate underdog narrative in sports during 2016 when Scott—in the twilight of his career—went from a joke All-Star fan-voted nominee to scoring two goals and winning the All-Star Game’s MVP title. This is his heartwarming story about an average Joe who became a sports superhero overnight.<BR><BR>Known as a willing-and-able fighter and bruiser in the league, John Scott was a surprising and tongue-and-cheek nominee for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game. He’d been in the league for over eight NHL seasons, playing for teams such as the Wild, Blackhawks, Rangers, Sabres, and the Sharks. Scott’s best attribute as an NHL player was dropping his gloves—never the best player, the 260 pounder did become the most feared fighter in the NHL, racking up extensive penalty minutes. In order to prevent him from playing in the game, his current team—the Phoenix Coyotes—traded Scott to the Montreal Canadians, who demoted him to the AHL team in an attempt to disqualify him from playing in the All-Star Game. Fans were outraged and Scott was devastated. He’d been downgraded in his job—forced to relocate while his wife was pregnant with twin girls. But the fans wouldn’t back down and insisted the NHL let Scott play in the game. The league relented, and Scott not only was invited to attend the NHL game in Nashville, but was nominated a team captain. The media and sports fans at large fell in love with the giant six-foot-eight player who by all means, was just a normal guy and no superstar player. In a true Cinderella story, Scott scored two goals and was the All-Star Game’s MVP. This is his personal memoir—detailing his life growing up and how he was able to keep his sense of humor and become the ultimate Cinderella-Story of hockey.

<b>Learn the ways of the Japanese Bushido Code with this very readable, modern translation of the <i>Bushido Shoshinshu</i>.</b><br /><br /><i>Code of the Samurai</i> is a four-hundred-year-old explication of the rules and expectations embodied in <i>Bushido</i>, the Japanese Way of the Warrior. <i>Bushido</i> has played a major role in shaping the behavior of modern Japanese government, corporations, society, and individuals, as well as in shaping modern Japanese martial arts within Japan and internationally. <br /><br />The Japanese original of this book, <i>Bushido Shoshinshu</i>, (<i>Bushido for Beginners</i>), has been one of the primary sources on the tenets of <i>Bushido</i>, a way of thought that remains fascinating and relevant to the modern world, East and West. This handbook, written after five hundred years of military rule in Japan, was composed to provide practical and moral instruction for warriors, correcting wayward tendencies and outlining the personal, social, and professional standards of conduct characteristic of <i>Bushido</i>, the Japanese chivalric tradition.<br /><br />With a clear, conversational narrative by Thomas Cleary, one of the foremost translators of the wisdom of Asia, and powerfully evocative line drawings by master illustrator Oscar Ratti, this book is indispensable to the corporate executive, student of the Asian Culture, martial artist, those interested in Eastern philosophy or military strategy, as well as for those simply interested in Japan and its people.
