The course enhances students' competency in hockey while encouraging success as student-athletes. The objectives encompass intense hockey specific training targeted at developing the whole athlete, including the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains. The course blends on-ice hockey skill instruction with off-ice instruction on nutrition, physical conditioning, and leadership in an environment that nurtures self=esteem and confidence building. Learning styles of students are assessed in order to individualize instruction and foster maximum development. The course is open to male and female students of any skill level who want to improve their hockey skills for either recreational or competitive goals. Learning opportunities will be incorporated in competitive settings outside of classroom instruction.
Sardis Secondary School has joined forces with community partners to offer skills development programs for secondary school girls and boys who have a passion for hockey. These are unique opportunities for secondary students, of any skill level, to develop sport specific skills in grades 9 – 12 while developing their own viable post-secondary transition plan. The goals of the program include the promotion of healthy lifestyles and an emphasis on academic achievement.
In particular, the learning outcomes of the programs include:
- Improved skills and fitness levels
- supported academic achievement
- engaged students in learning through relevant learning experiences
- improved personal management and teamwork skills that are transferrable to students’ careers
- improved leadership, commitment, confidence, persistence, responsibility, adaptability and integrity
- challenge to students academically, physically and mentally with practical sport specific training; and
- development of a viable post-secondary transition plan.
Goals and learning outcomes are practical and applicable to life well beyond the high school level, and emphasize the development of personalized post-secondary plans that require ongoing adjustments reflective of the student’s stage of skill development.
