Evolve Program Overview
Evolve Player Development Program
Traditional player development consists of a player attending a misc variety of clinics, team practices, camps, along with some off ice shooting or rollerblading. Good that they are on the ice or doing something, but without a system of development that is measurable and specific to each player, there really is not much development happening.
The Evolve Player Development Program takes a much more detailed and systematic approach to working with individual players. The Evolve Program helps families to establish their goals. By using the TEMT Model we can custom design a program to address the needs of that player and help them achieve the goals the parents and the player set, both long and short term.
The program gives players a solid development path, and parents peace of mind that they are doing the right things at the right times.
How the Program Works
The program is designed to take a player from the age they are currently until they reach College Hockey. Each year is different as the needs of each player change and the program must change with them.
The first year establishes a base to start from and sets the foundation of how Evolve, The Player, and The Parents work together. Year One is made up of an 8 week introductory course followed by a 10 month program following the TEMT Model.
Years two and beyond follow the foundation set in year one but are modified to insure the player is getting the right development and playing opportunities at the right times.
Evolve Player Development Next Steps
To Register for the Program
Parents go to the registration link and fill out an application and pay a deposit.
We will send a welcome email with pre program instructions as there are a few things the player will need to have when the program begins.
The initial 8 week program will include Off Ice, On Form Video, Power Player, Team Genius, and a series of weekly videos and sets the foundation of the program. Along with that will be weekly Q and A calls and 3 zoom call personal calls with me.
We will email you the On Ice and Off Ice Testing Criteria which consists of 8 timed tests. These tests have been used by Hockey Canada, USA Hockey, and numerous professional groups to give an indication of a player’s skill level relative to their peers. More detail regarding these tests will be emailed to you.
Set up Accounts
We use a couple different websites to track each players progress in our program. Power Player is designed to track combine test scores on each player and compare to other players their age. Coaching Notes, Videos, and Private Text Messaging is done through On Form Player Tracking Software. Each player will have their own account and can refer to it at any time. Their Off Ice Workouts will be done through Team Genius. And lastly, Player Tracking and Virtual Locker Room will be done through I Sport 360. This may seem like a lot, but they are very easy to use and work well together. We will get you signed up for each and you will get the links once registration is completed.
After registration, combine, and web site links have been completed, you will meet virtually with an Evolve staff to review the 8 week Introductory Program. This program will include our evaluation process and how we use the TEMT Model to keep the player on the path they need to be on.
Evolve Staff Player Tracking
We will have an Evolve staff monitor your player on a regular basis using the tools we have set up with you during the 8 week program. We will have weekly Q and A calls which will be live and recorded. Families can speak with us live during the call or submit questions which we will answer during the call. The call is recorded so it can be listened to later if a family misses it. Each family will have 3 private zoom calls with Coach Glenn during their 8 week initial program.
Follow Up consultation
After the initial 8 week Introductory Program, we will schedule a follow up consultation with an Evolve staff every 6 to 8 weeks to review your players progress and make any changes to the program. This ensures that your player’s training plan will always fit what they need at that time. As a part of the consultation, the player will schedule another testing combine and the results compared to past results.
As the player gets older, these consultations will also be a time where families can discuss future teams and higher-level opportunities that may be available in the future.
