On-Ice Training Volume
|The chart below can be used in conjunction with your Annual Training Volume Record to determine the number of hours per week a skater needs to skate to satisfy his training objectives or to determine projected annual training volume based on the current number of hours skated per week.
1. To determine the number of hours per week the skater needs to skate to satisfy a specific annual
volume, first review the Annual Training Volume chart.
2. Find this volume on the chart above by reading the top column across.
3. Determine the number of weeks per year the skater will skate. Remember to allow for breaks in the
schedule such as March break, Christmas, other holidays and absenteeism, competitions, test days etc. 4. Read across and down to find the number of hours per week that will be necessary.
5. To project the number of hours the skater will skate in a given year based on his currently weekly
volume, find the number of hours and the number of weeks he currently skates. The projected number of hours per year are shown by reading up to the top column.
