#PanthersAtHome: Impressive Hockey Training, Trick Shots and Talent

PanthersAtHome SWSCD

Central York Panthers  come  together (while apart) to work on speed, power, strength, puck control skills, shoot ... and fun

The rinks may be closed but women's and girls' hockey is alive in the homes (and streets) of Central York Girl's Hockey Association players. When the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly ended the 2019-20 hockey season, the Central York Junior Panthers had a great idea to keep Panthers positive and to help everyone get ready for next season with the #PanthersAtHome initiative.  

#PanthersAtHome is a rally cry for fellow Panthers to stay connected and celebrate what they're doing to stay active while being safe and practicing physical distancing. Panther players and teams can watch and contribute videos that are showcased on the CYGHA website.  

"One positive of physical distancing is the opportunity for players of all ages and abilities to focus on improving away from the rink.  Off-ice training is a very important component of player development and some might even say that without it we can never fully realize our true potential.  Working on your skills away from the rink will allow you to focus on your bio-motor abilities (speed, power, strength, flexibility, conditioning, hand eye coordination, etc) that will enhance your on-ice skills when you get back to the rink." - Steve Dempsey, Head Jr Coach, Coach Mentor

Craving some uplifting, fun stories? We're sharing a few here but there are loads more uploaded each week on the CYGHA website.

Strong Like A Panther - Abby Warriner #81

The Junior Panthers are looking for new ways to stay strong during these challenging times while having fun connecting with their teammates. They have started doing a push up challenge. The first push up that they are working on is a Russian Push Up. It is very challenging and some have said that it is the hardest push up they have ever done. Check out Abby Warriner's video below doing some Russian Push Ups. You are encouraged to set weekly goals for yourself and connect with your fellow players to start your own challenge.
