Why Small Ice? Well, it’s science…
True it is smaller than a regulation size rink, but with good reason. We are a TRAINING CENTRE. We have ONE GOAL and that is to make you a better hockey goaltender. We know that more repetitions per training session will make you a better goalie – so we give you 462% more touches with our unique training facility.
**Hick-Hyman Law: H= n/E/i- Pi log2 (1/pi+1) = 462% More Touches
We also believe in PERFECT PRACTICE. Only PERFECT PRACTICE makes perfect! Our ice size is conducive to close goalie-coach proximity which allows Coaches and Instructors to keep a closer eye on your developing skill set. Lets use an example from another sport, e.g. baseball, the example of a batting cage to describe our “Perfect Practice” model. The small area allows the coach to stay on top of players to form successful training habits. The details do not get overlooked.
Without close goalie-coach proximity and many repetitions of high-skill practice, the chances of improper training habits forming increases drastically!
All of this results in a simple formula that leads to the reason Magic Hockey exists and has been so successful for over 10 years:
Repetition + Proximity = Success
