ABOUT
HOCKEY iQ ACADEMY

OUR HISTORY

The Hockey iQ Academy was created to teach the broad mental aspects of hockey. We’ve observed that today’s players are far more skilled on ice than ever before yet still struggle to think the game as fast as they can play it. It’s Founder, Tony Gruba, played youth and high school hockey in MN and continued on to St. Cloud State where he was named Captain and drafted by the Detroit Red Wings.



WHAT WE DO

Hockey Sense, or Hockey iQ, means something different to everyone. We’ve done extensive research to develop a curriculum which covers everything from playing without the puck, situational awareness, preparation, mental toughness, to learning from watching a hockey game and much more.



WHY IT MATTERS

Up to 80% of a player’s on ice effectiveness can be attributed to the mental aspects of hockey. Yet nearly all of a player’s time is spent developing their physical skills. Allocating training time to the mental aspects will deepen a players understanding of the game allowing them to fully utilize their physical skills, maximize their potential and enhance their love of the game.



CAN HOCKEY SENSE BE LEARNED?

YES! While there is no question some players bring a more ‘natural feel’ to the game we believe all players can enhance their productivity and love of the game by being encouraged to be ‘Students of the Game’. Furthermore, many of the concepts are transferable to other sports and areas of their life.
