Questions and Answers on Micro Ice Hockey Training.

  1. Why is Micro Ice appropriate for young hockey players?
    Answer: It is age appropriate, baseball has little league fields, soccer has mini fields and adjustable nets, basketball has reduced height and 3 on 3 with half courts. Why would hockey be any different than other sports, which are much bigger?

  2. Where did the idea of Micro Ice come from?
    Answer: The New Age Hockey player is promoted after a European style of hockey that teaches skill development with high speed skating. Sweden and Finland have been teaching these skills in small groups and areas for years.
  3. Can you get a solid ice skating workout on Micro Ice?
    Answer: Not only does the smaller ice surface facilitate quick decisions with the puck, but with the high skating pace as you master specific skills, you achieve an intense workout.
  4. Does the smaller skating area contribute to your skill development?
    Answer: Yes, because ice hockey is really played in a series of small areas with limited space. The player who can improve his skills in this area will have a much greater success on the larger ice surface. Example: Baseball hitters train in batting cages, where they can get EXPERT training with high numbers of repetitions. The smaller surface forces you to get out of your comfort zone, which leads to raised skill level and improved quickness in shots and moves.
  5. How would you compare “synthetic” (fake) ice to the real ice experience of Micro Ice?
    Answer: Ice Hockey is played on real ice, not synthetic or fake ice. You simply can not develop the speed or gain a real ice experience on fake ice. The movement is to slow and you cannot do the edge work necessary to improve your puck handling skills.“If it is not real ice, it is not real”
