Fake Fundamentals

Tony Liebert, a youth hockey coach in Madison Wisconsin coined this phrase to describe fancy drills that look cool but have no carryover to what happens in the game. How much of your practice consists of “fake fundamentals”? Once again it is important to remember that drills do not equal skill. More drills make you better at drills not the sport. Think about what you are doing and why and how you are doing it. Ultimately the game or the skills of the sport are the best teachers, so don’t stray to far from there.
