The first in a series of four books for developing hockey skills for children by former Edmonton Oilers star defenceman and now medical doctor Randy Gregg. SKATING DRILLS FOR HOCKEY focuses on drills for skating, agility, speed and power. This illustrated book provides a wide variety of easy-to-learn drills covering the fundamentals of skating as well as both technical and dynamic drills for agility, speed and power. Each book has: • both technical and dynamic drills for each skill • clear instructions for teaching and execution • descriptive diagrams for on-ice play • drill expansions for more advanced players • suggestions for getting the most out of a practice • blank practice plans and sample practice plans to help with organizing a complete practice.
Randy Gregg is the owner of five Stanley Cup rings from his time with the Oilers, despite a string of retirements and medical-school commitments. Gregg, an Edmonton native, was a teenage hockey player of note, but he was also a genius. The University of Alberta had accepted him at age 16 and three years later, in 1975, he began the study of medicine. Currently, Dr. Gregg has a successful practice in the city of Edmonton.
