There has been a lot of attention in the media to Brent Sutter’s comments regarding the Canadian Juniors loss for the second straight year, his perception that we have fallen behind in terms of skills, and that there needs to be a much greater focus at the younger ages on development of fundamental skills over winning games. We introduced LTAD into the OVA about five years ago, including triple ball, and other sports have since gone in a similar direction. Will hockey change? Hard to tell.
Interestingly, USA volleyball is now promoting triple ball. This is an interesting video.
