Slideboard Training and Development
By Becky Dever
The concept behind the slideboard training is to help build stronger jump mechanics through repetition without the athlete adding undue stress to the body. These tools are to assist and emphasize body preservation and development of muscle memory. All of these skills can then be threaded to the ice and strengthen the development process.
With the slide board you can have measurable/tangible exercises; all of these exercises are progressive and move through level appropriate stages.
