The summer of 2022 brings big changes for the Brahmas, as they sign a three-year contract with D1 Training Facility, today, June 30th, 2022. NYTEX’s  16U, 18U, NA3, and NA players will now all be performing their off-ice dry land training under the instruction of the D1 staff at D1 Colleyville.

Under the new agreement the 10U, 12U, and 14U players will be trained once a week by the D1 team at NYTEX throughout the DSTHL season. This training will take place in the new facility that D1 is going to renovate inside Olympic Hall at NYTEX assisted by a financial contribution from the Texas Brahmas Youth Hockey Association.

Prior to signing the contract with D1 Training, Chad Siewert, Vice President of the Lone Star Brahmas and President of the TBYHA, remarked, “We are excited to partner with D1 Colleyville.  Derek and his team have all the latest and greatest training and tools to really help make the Brahma brand better top to bottom.  Brahma Land just added a very powerful partner that will take our athletes to the next level.”

There is a plethora of benefits to elevate each player’s game from this contract signing. All athletes will have access to the state-of-the-art D1 app which will track and chart their progress throughout the season. D1 will help our players rise to the next level of not just dry land training, but hockey as well. D1 Facility Owner, Derek Michels, is no stranger to the game of hockey, for he is a hockey parent with one child currently playing in the DSTHL and one in Canada playing in the WHL. All workouts are tailored to the sport and will be designed to help take the players to the next level, becoming the best hockey players they can be.

As the athletes are readily preparing for the upcoming season, NYTEX sports is making great strides to equip their athletes with the best tools for success in the upcoming season, and years to come.  

Lone Star Brahmas Media Department Intern Brooklynn Gravel contributed to this press release.
