Ice Hawks in the News

Hawks raise the bar in player development

  •  Rochester Ice Hawks contract with Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center for hockey performance training program.
  • The Ice Hawks are pleased to announce that they will be working with Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center to provide a comprehensive hockey performance program involving both skill and physical performance training for our players. Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center provides expert care for elite athletes and professional teams including the Minnesota Twins, Timberwolves, Lynx and USA Hockey. The Ice Hawks will be training in the new Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, a state of the art facility complete with turf, synthetic ice, a Woodway skating treadmill, and Keiser equipment.
  • The program is the first of many that will be utilizing the expertise of Mayo Clinic and EXOS, the leader in integrated performance training, nutrition, and physical therapy for elite and professional athletes. The performance program includes hockey-specific strength and movement training, aerobic/anaerobic conditioning, hockey skills (skating, shooting, stickhandling), corrective exercises for mobility, stability and injury prevention, sports nutrition and hydration, vision/ocular training and mental preparation. Ice Hawks players will participate in four sessions (two skills sessions using the artificial ice and blade treadmill and two performance training sessions) each week throughout the season.
  • The Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine performance program is in addition to regular daily morning team practices. According to team President Michael Fatis, “The Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine component adds a new and significant dimension to player development. The Ice Hawks have always been committed to providing the most advanced and innovative services for their players’ development. Mayo Clinic expertise and facilities build on and enhance that commitment.”
  • The addition of skill and performance training is the newest aspect of a long-standing relationship between the Ice Hawks and Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center. Michael Stuart, M.D. has served as the team’s physician since the 2002-2003season. In addition, Dr. Stuart and his staff have and will continue to provide athletic trainers and game night physicians for all Ice Hawks’ home games.
  • The Ice Hawks pride themselves in their commitment to player development. In addition to the services provided by Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, players participate in a structured psycho-educational classroom program focusing on personal development. The focus of the program is to prepare players for the demands of student athletes by providing off-ice personal skills and preparation for college. The Ice Hawks provide the guidance services of a Housing Coordinator, a Player Coordinator who monitors and assists in off-ice matters, as well as an Educational Coordinator who works with players to meet academic requirements.
  • “The Ice Hawks are proud of their longstanding commitment to player development both on and off the ice. “ This newest Mayo Clinic piece moves us to another level,” says Fatis. “We want to provide our players the best possible developmental opportunities.”
