We’re Talking About Practice

from Let's Play Hockey,
Do we really think that athletes in other sports can improve from practice — and, somehow this doesn’t work in hockey? How about a team basketball practice where they stop the team drills periodically, and go off to the six baskets in the gym and work on free throws or jump shots for 10 minutes? Then, they come together again and resume team practice. Can’t we do that in hockey? If we had stations — four extra portable nets or targets, each one designated in advance for a particular kind of shooting practice — would players not improve from 100 extra reps per practice? If we broke up for five minutes and worked on various stickhandling drills while moving the feet, would this not make us better stickhandlers?
