Sean working with the US National Development Program
Welcome to the most comprehensive hockey development program available
for any ice hockey player.
Tricks of the Trade was developed with one goal in mind: Introduce youth
hockey players to the mental, physical, and technical training methods used by
professionals and Olympians around the world to improve their game.
Sean Berens and Tricks of the Trade have been instructing amateur and
professional hockey players across the United States and Europe since
1998. Sean has been demonstrating techniques learned first hand,
that allow players to compete at top performance levels. The on-ice
instruction focuses on intricate technical details to help develop core
skills. Classroom sessions will provide scouting seminars and visualization
techniques. Off-ice programs will build "quick-twitch" muscle fibers learned
from European Olympic development programs. These techniques and training
methods have been learned and will be taught, first hand by Director Sean Berens.
From puck handling to skating stride, you won't find a better, more informative
program than Tricks of the Trade.
