Varisport, Inc. Makes Sixth Appearance at NHL Scouting Combine
Varisport, Inc., will be exhibiting the ULTRASLIDE® Slideboard at the Strength Coaches Association of Professional Hockey (SCAPH) Vendor Show in Toronto on Thursday, May 30, 2013.
This year is Varisport’s sixth appearance at the NHL Scouting Combine. This year Varisport will co-host a lunch with Life Fitness/Hammer Strength for all NHL Strength Coaches in attendance to support networking, education and recognition in the hockey training community. The ULTRASLIDE Slideboard is a mainstay in hockey training programs and is currently in use by 21 NHL teams to support good skating form, enable off ice hockey training and drills and enhance sports-specific anaerobic training.
The Scouting Combine will allow all 30 NHL teams to interview as many rookie prospects as they wish over a four-day period. The players also will be put through a series of endurance tests that have become a staple of the Combine in preparation for team development for the new hockey season.
