In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Sports Performance Specialist & Founding Coach at Coach Me Plus, Doug McKenney. Doug has vast experience working in the NHL and was, in fact, the first full-time S&C coach in the NHL working with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Naturally, I was keen to speak to Doug about his work in ice hockey and how things had progressed over his career. And with his long-standing relationship with Coach Me Plus, it was great to get Doug’s thoughts on the world of athlete monitoring systems (AMS’).

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Doug McKenney (background, experience, and current role)?
  • Athlete Management Systems
    • What people are looking for/think they are looking for
    • Market leaders
  • Athlete tracking in ice hockey
    • Ice hockey staking algorithms
    • Developing injury reduction strategies in ice hockey
  • Strength & conditioning and how things have evolved
    • Athlete testing in and out of the gym
