Make 2017 YOUR Year!
January 1, 2017 4:02 pm
Who doesn’t love the fresh start feeling that the New Year brings! Encourage your athlete to set goals this year. Through our curriculum we advise our young athletes to set 3 types of goals:
- Development Goal
- This should be something very easily attainable in practice or training times. Improved focus in practice. Improved diet. Isolating a deficient skill and working towards improving it.
- Game Goal
- This should be ever changing. Start small; working hard for an entire game, being a good teammate, x-number of shots on net, winning 1 on 1 battles. From there, once the confidence and in-game production grows these goals can become more detailed and lofty!
- Academic Goal
- Without the grades, hockey achievements are nothing. No different than our hockey skills, encourage your student-athlete to sharpen their academic toolbox and strive to be better every day!
Make 2017 your year; one shift at a time!
