The Apex Hockey Training Program was conducted in 2-hour daily sessions, Monday through Friday, for 12 weeks. The program is designed for professional, college and prep/high school players. In an interview in the Stamford Advocate, Kalinowski said:

"We were lifting weights. We were working on the (hockey) treadmill. There were skating drills which gave me very quick strides on ice. It developed my quickness. The bench presses gave me strength. And the drills gave me quick feet."

Super Sophs Sparq Scores and Rankings

How Do You Rate?

The SPARQ Lacrosse Rating is an index of athleticism calculated from the results on a battery of four field tests of athletic performance: vert ical jump, combined with body weight to calculate peak leg power; 20-yard dash, for linear acceleration; 30-yard shuttle, for agility; and rotat ional Power Bal l, for upper-body power.

Each Rating provides a window into the athlete’s capacities to meet the physical demands of ‘the fastest game on two feet’. The SPARQ Rating is an objective tool that should be used to inform an athlete’s goal setting for training and to measure the progress of his physical development.

Tell me about your Acceleration Program?

The full program takes 6 weeks, depending on how you schedule your workouts. You should plan to schedule a minimum of three times per week for maximum strength and physiological changes. You should lift weights two or three times a week, skate/run on the treadmill two times a week, and perform plyometrics once a week. We will help you design your schedule when you begin. At the end of the program we will provide a thorough post-program evaluation so that your improvements can be measured and recorded.

Who is the program for?

The program is not just for the elite. It helps people improve regardless of their ability. With this program you are sure to improve your speed, strength, and self-confidence. The more you put in, the more you get out. Our goal is to help every participant excel, no matter what level they are at physically.

What are the age limits?

Research has shown the greatest neurological changes in the body occur before age 13. The more you can do prior to the onset of puberty, within a safe and controlled environment, such as BlueStreak Sports Training, the better neuromuscular system the athlete will have after puberty. Also, because of the physical demands this program places on the athlete, we conduct a thorough pre-program evaluation. If the athlete does not have sufficient strength we offer a Ground-based Program that will enable the athlete to develop the proper amount of strength needed to complete the BlueStreak program.

What does the "6 week running and 6 week ice hockey program" consist of?

First, the athlete comes in for a pre-test, which is an evaluation of performance, strength, and flexibility testing. Each athlete’s training is planned out for the specific needs of the athlete and includes the super treadmill, Plyometrics, and Strength training. Advanced levels of training consist of the patented Sprint Cords.

  • Running Treadmill: 12 sessions, 2x a week. Used to analyze and improve running and sprinting mechanics. We help you lengthen and quicken your stride so you are faster and more agile. You will use the treadmill to run quick interval sprints, which gradually increase, so your body gets conditioned to recover faster.
  • Hockey Treadmill: 12 sessions, 2x a week. The athlete wears ice skates to skate on an ice-like treadmill that can incline up to 40% and reach a speed of 17mph. Much like the running treadmill, it works to improve skating speed, biomechanics, and strength throughout the six weeks.
  • Plyometrics: Train once a week by doing a variety of footwork drills to improve balance, agility, and vertical jump. You will gain outstanding body awareness and the ability to move quickly and explosively.
  • Strength Training: 2-3x a week using specially designed weight lifting equipment to improve power base. Very young athletes may also use strength-building techniques which do not involve weights.
  • Patented Sprint Cords: Attach to arms or legs to increase resistance during running, hitting, throwing, and kicking. They are used differently for each sport. Sprint cords enable athletes to strengthen at velocities used in actual athletic competition.

One is allowed a maximum of 10 weeks to complete the program from the start date. You should plan to schedule three sessions a week for maximum strength and physiological changes. You should lift 2-3 times a week, run or skate twice per week, and perform plyometrics once a week. We will help you design a schedule when you begin.

When should I begin the BlueStreak Program in relation to the athletic season?

Start the program 8-10 weeks before training starts for your sport. This will give you time to finish the program and allow a week or two of rest before your sport begins. If a vacation or other plans will interfere with your schedule, move your starting date forward to allow extra completion time. You will get the best results when your training is not interrupted by more than a week, so try to keep on track.

What can I do during the season to maintain improvements made during the program?

We have maintenance programs and team training available throughout your season, and can be scheduled at your convenience.

What can I do to keep making gains?

The Acceleration Program has five levels. Each level of training involves greater intensity. Once you’ve been through one level, then participated in your sport, you may want to come back for the next level. Or you may complete the levels in succession based upon your maximal sprint speed.

How is the BlueStreak Program different from what I can get at camps?

Not to discourage camps, but our program is based on years of science, research, and program modifications. Also camps teach you specific skills for your sport. BlueStreak Sports Training focuses on building speed, strength, quickening jumping ability, power, and overall conditioning. As the price is comparable, you get far more one-on-one time with professionals and you get over 6 weeks to absorb and practice what you are learning. You get 40 hours of training at the facility for the duration of your program.

How can I compare this program to other conditioning programs?

There is no other program like ours in the world. BlueStreak Sports Training protocols were scientifically developed, tested, and researched with input from exercise physiologists, orthopedic physicians, athletic trainers, physical and occupational therapists, and many others. We used patented equipment designed for and use exclusively by the Frappier Acceleration Network. Besides the high levels of expertise, alumni of our program will tell you it’s great for building an athlete’s motivation.

What can I expect at my first appointment?

Come dressed to workout. Please be wearing shorts, a t-shirt, and running shoes. You will go through an extensive evaluation of your strength, speed, power, and flexibility. You will want to eat a light meal 2 or 3 hours before your appointment. After the session you will need to schedule further appointments. In order to take advantage of our supplemental nutritional analysis, you must bring a 3-day food record.
