#1 : @HeyBarber / @PavelBarberTraining
Our favorite hockey page(s) are run by Pavel Barber, a stick-handling specialist with a deep passion for understanding the extreme details and movements behind the easiest, and trickiest moves in the game. Inspired by Pavel Datsyuk, his silky hands are a joy to watch, and his instructional videos can help just about anyone learn and conquer some incredible dekes to give an edge to their game. Barber is one of those coaches that clearly resonates with our Conquest message, as he says “ every time I got out there I knew I had the chance to get better at the game if I worked hard enough. The harder I worked, the better I got.” Pavel understands the importance of pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. And just as we do here at Conquest, he looks at failures as opportunities to correct and become better. Whether it’s learning how to implement a toe drag correctly, or perfecting the most jaw dropping dekes, Pavel is the guy you need to be following to take your hands to the next level. Follow @HeyBarber and @PavelBarberTraining on Instagram and YouTube for awesome drills, tutorials, and ideas to succeed.
Keep an eye out for the Pavel Barber Hockey School coming to a city near you, with camps in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver, Chicago, Minnesota, and St. Louis this summer.
Look forward to more great content coming your way to help take your game to the next level.
