Staying in shape is the
key to any successful hockey player.
Luckily at Peak Performance, the knowledgeable staff
gives high school players an opportunity to stay fit or

Peak Performance co-owners Eric Short and Kevin Lizotte
offer nine hours of conditioning and skill-building
drills at the yearly Fall Conditioning Camp, which first

spend two or three weeks getting players in shape," Lizotte said.
"There are too many things to cover as a team before the
first league game, so it's essential that players come
into the season in top shape. The preseason conditioning
camp is a great way for players to get a head start on
the high school season and come into tryouts in game
This high intensity camp focuses on skill development
and conditioning specifically designed for the high
school hockey player.
"Core strength is the key to success and a trademark of
Peak Performance Conditioning," Lizotte said.
Both the on- and off-ice conditioning drills will be
used to get both male and female high school players
prepared for the rigors of a grueling high school ice
hockey season. The seven hours of ice instruction will
focus mainly on high-intensity drills and scrimmages to
help improve the players' skill levels.
"The Peak Performance high school conditioning camp is
run each year by most of the top varsity coaches in the
area," Lizotte said. "They know exactly what is going to
be expected of high school players at the start of the
season and will make sure that every player leaves the
camp physically prepared for varsity level tryouts."
