Character Lesson Content
Character. Character and leadership development is a part of EVERY training program I run at EVERY level. When we focus on maximizing each individual and finding their strengths we can bring one's best self to the team environment and apply what we're learning to our life outside of field hockey! Please see examples below.
Individual and Small Group
Small Group We have found that technical training can be instrumental in taking each player's hockey to a new level. All sessions are on our covered astro turf in my backyard in Pennington NJ. We will be focusing on fundamentals of the game inspired by the trends from international hockey. Small groups allow us to customize the training to the specific level and developmental age of the group. This allows us to maximize the potential of each young girl! The fundamentals of hockey are the most important piece of the game and provide a platform to play the game with enjoyment. We use video and demonstration of each skill executed correctly. We find ways to creatively teach each skill of the game.
Individuals We have found that technical training can be instrumental in taking each player's field hockey skill to a new level. Individual or 1-on-1 training is great for accelerating development. Many of my aspiring college field hockey players use these sessions to help them prepare for season or recruiting events and/or supplement their club season training. Pricing will vary based on number of players. Please email Melisa for more details: email@example.com
Values and Goal Setting. This concept feels like something we should introduce at the high school age, but even young kids thrive when they have a goal they believe in and want to reach. We are going to explore how to connect our values to our goals in hockey, school and life.
Leadership and Finding YOUR strength Every one of these girls has multiple strengths. Those strengths can be masked by insecurities or by the desire to be liked or to fit in. Social media makes this even more challenging. We are constantly reminded that we are not good enough. We should be skinnier, we should wear make up, we should be funnier, smarter, more friendly. We should edit this picture one more time. We want to help these girl identify their strengths, own them and share them.
Using your Voice. How can we use our voice to make a difference on and off the field. We're going to explore how our words build up or break down the people around us. Do our words align with who we want to be.
Conflict Management. Conflict inevitably finds it's way into everyone's life and many times (especially for girls) it is what we hear second hand that is so hurtful. We are going to explore some strategies on how to manage conflict and how to maintain positive fulfilling relationships on your team,, in you family and in your social life outside of your family.
