Levels Of Training Indicators In The Annual Training Of Young Hockey Players



This paper presents the means of control used in a competitive sport (ice hockey), including changes in aerobic and anaerobic capacity indicators between training periods. The study was carried out with 14 ice-hockey players (n=14), who were pupils at the Sport Championship School run by the Polish Ice Hockey Federation in Sosnowiec. Tests were performed in the early general preparation period (June), in the early competition period (November), and during the direct competition preparation period (March) preceding the main sporting event of the season – the Ice Hockey U-18 World Championship Division I Group B. The values of three of the four aerobic capacity indicators studied herein were the lowest in the direct preparation period and the highest in the early competition period. Since the values of all anaerobic capacity indicators were the highest in the direct preparation period; indicates that the study participants were well prepared for the specific demands of on-ice competition.
