PYH is proud to partner with local business and PYH family owned Salt Shack CrossFit (here) for anyone interested in off-ice training. Salt Shack Crossfit has a very similar philosophy as USA Hockey in terms of long-term athlete development for our youth.

The Importance of Quality Coaching and Programming
An important factor in the program is variety. By incorporating different movements into our strength and conditioning program we avoid specialization. Early specialization among young athletes can lead to overuse injuries from repetitive motions and a lack of development of other motor skills. Our program provides the younger kids with the ability and confidence required to build physical literacy, which is merely about developing the fundamental movement skills that all children need. These movement skills in turn give kids the confidence to participate not only in hockey, but also different physical activities, sports, and games. Without these skills, inactive youths will continue to fall behind their peers.
All of our coaches are experienced professionals and certified. Modified options will always be available to fit the individual and ensure safety. We work closely with each athlete and are relentless in our pursuit of quality movement patterns. As we see mastery, we will present new challenges to athletes.
