Cooperation between HDC Slovakia and Slovakia U18 team continues8. 08. 2017
The first testing of the Slovakia U18 team players before the new season.
Victory at the Vladimir Dzurilla tournament and the best performance at the youth World Championships in recent years. Such results were achieved last year by the hockey team of Slovakia U18. The main factor that stands behind these results was the systematic work of the coaching staff led by the head coach – Norbert Javorcik. This systematic work was built on a model of individual preparation for a hockey player, which considers factors such as general preparation, special preparation, recovery, health status, nutrition, drinking regime and special attention was paid to mental preparation. In this comprehensive approach he got help from specialists from the diagnostic and training center HDC Slovakia.
We are very pleased that after such a successful season our cooperation continues. The first joint event in the new season was the entry testing of the new players in Slovakia U18 team. It was performed under the leadership of HDC Slovakia. On this testing took part not only the head coach of national team Norbert Jaworcik, but also the new general director of the Slovak national teams, Miroslav Satan.
We believe that the new players of the Slovakia U18 national team18 will reach this season the same level as their predecessors last season.
