Baseline Concussion Testing

Outside Edge Hockey Development is very pleased to announce that our Preferred Partner, ACCEL Physiotherapy, is offering a preferred rate (45% discount) on Baseline Concussion Testing to all athletes who are currently participating or have previously participated in an Outside Edge Hockey Development or Outside Edge Elite Training program.

Baseline Concussion testing is highly recommended by Outside Edge as it is the most effective way to ensure your young athlete can be diagnosed accurately after a head injury.  This facilitates an accurate diagnosis, an objective measurement to use in prognosis, and the quickest possible return to sport after a head injury.

We are very pleased to be working with ACCEL Physiotherapy to deliver opportunities such as Baseline Concussion Testing and strongly encourage all of our athletes to take advantage of this program!

In order to take advantage of this offer, you must attend our free Baseline Concussion Testing presentation on October 19th, 2015 at ACCEL Physiotherapy or email Cari to make an alternative arrangement.  More Information

See ACCEL Physiotherapy’s Complete Concussion Management information sheet as well as ACCEL owner, Karen Decker’s Letter to Parents.

Training on the Outside Edge!

Trainer Chris Pierce has been providing semi-private strength and conditioning to top hockey prospects in Halifax for the past 7 years.  During this time Chris has been working with Shane Bowers (Ottawa Senators draft, Boston University), Mark Grametbauer (Moncton Wildcats), Keenan MacIsaac (Acadie-Bathurst), and Nick Ormon (Chiliwack).

Outside Edge Elite Training is built on the philosophy that every athlete is unique!  In order for each individual athlete to reach their potential, they must be challenged physically and mentally in a program that recognizes their personal strengths and weaknesses.

Outside Edge Elite Training is committed to providing personal and small group programs.  Although there are fundamental aspects to various segments of each program, there is also room for specialization in each individual’s routines.

The program that Chris builds for each athlete or small group is designed to help the individual or participants gain confidence in their physical and mental capabilities.
