The 3 key reasons to love your cerebellum

Your cerebellum is the “little brain” at the back of your brain at the top of your spinal cord.  Athletes should learn to pay a lot of respect to their cerebellums, because this little brain gives you a great advantage in your game.  The cerebellum does a lot of really important things, but we’ll focus on just 3 of those things here.  They are the ABC;s of movement.

First, A stands for accuracy.  The cerebellum helps you to be accurate when shooting pucks, passing to your teammates, and skating in a straight line.  

Second, B stands for balance.  The cerebellum helps you to stay upright in your skates, do your edges, and stay on your feet when you get rocked by the opposing team. 

Third, C stands for coordination.  The cerebellum helps you to have the fluid and effortless looking movement that is the most obvious in best athletes in the world. 

As you can see, the ABCs of movement can are key to high performance as an athlete.  Just like the other parts of your brain, your cerebellum can be trained to perform better and better…with the right kind of drills and practice.
