For their preparation for the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, the Swiss women’s national team relies on a tried-and-tested concept. The last season, with its perfect performance at the Qualification Tournament in February, serves as a model.

After an intense off-ice-training-phase, the Swiss women’s national team is starting the second phase of their preparations for the Olympics in Pyeongchang. On Monday, they will start a one-week skills and development camp in Engelberg. A part of last year’s World Championship team and a couple of new prospects have been called up. Coach Daniela Diaz sees this as a good opportunity to "teach valuable skills for which there is little time during the other camps."

On their way to Pyeongchang, Daniela Diaz relies on well-known patterns and uses the past season as a model for their training plan until February: “We managed very well to be in top condition at the right time for the Olympic qualification tournament in February in Arosa. That’s why we took the knowledge that we gathered last year and built on it for the current season.”  

Diaz believes that the current program is ideal. More would not be possible due to the very dense schedule with Championship and Cup. Moreover, they have to take into account the various work and school situations of the players. Raeto Raffainer, Director of National Teams, agrees that this is a special situation: "In Switzerland, the possibilities to extend the preparation program are limited."

A first roster cut was already made after the off-ice tests, another cut will take place after the camp in Engelberg, Daniela Diaz says: "It’s our goal to work with a small roster after the Tryout-Camp in August and to prepare the team as well as possible for Pyeongchang." Towards the end of August, the first preparation games await the team at the Mont-Blanc-Cup in France. Further tests will follow with the Halloween-Cup, the Five-Nations-Tournament in Norway and the traditional Nations Cup in Füssen. Shortly before the Olympic Games, the Swiss team will hold an eight-day preparation camp in Seoul.
