Dryland Training Info & Registration

Why dryland training

In order for the Bend Rapids to continue our focus of player development and remain competitive in the Pacific Region, we are integrating structured off-ice training into our regular practice schedule across multiple age levels. This will allow players to not only further develop their hockey skills, but increase their overall athleticism across multiple sports and create healthy lifestyle habits that will last a lifetime.
For the current season (2021-22), we've partnered with Boss Sports Performance to facilitate dryland training at 14U and 18U levels.  Training will separate from any on-ice practices and will be held at their warehouse facility. 
Dryland training option 12U is still in the planning stages.
Boss Sports Performance was founded in 2014 by Kevin Boss (no relation to Jim Boss, the former Chair of the Rapids Steering Committee). Kevin's mission is to inspire and help athletes of all ages & sport reach their fullest athletic potential through comprehensive training programs. The vision is to create a positive & encouraging environment with all the necessary tools for athletes to succeed & excel in sport and life.
The Bend Rapids feel that Boss Sports Performance matches our mission to grow the sport of ice hockey in Central Oregon by adhering to USA Hockey’s ADM and the LTAD model through this mission. Learn more about Boss Sports Performance at
