  • Analyze how positive health habits can be supported by specific approaches to productivity and success; e.g., pre-game and/or game day routines
  • Develop strategies that promote wellness for self and others; e.g., adopt goals that reflect optimism about the future


Player Testimonial

“The leadership section of the ASI program was what I got the most out of. It has made me a better leader, teammate, classmate and better person in general. I enjoyed all the question that made me go deeper and think harder. It has made me a better writer and speaker and has expanded my vocabulary. It has taught me the importance of the little things and how they can make a difference.  Overall it has pushed me outside of my comfort zone and made me more confident.”

Reading Program

 

  • Over the course of 20 weeks, the ASI program will cover two books
  • Students will be assigned weekly readings and asked to answer insightful questions to dive deeper into the topics mentioned
  • This program will be accommodated for each student’s reading level


Reading Program Outcomes

  • Students apply strategies for being an “active reader” to manage ideas and information; e.g., highlight key details when they read, make notes to return to
  • Students will extend awareness of themes; e.g., athlete burnout, and discover the possibilities of being a proactive person
  • Students will follow a given plan of inquiry to form generalizations and conclusions about “things we do and do not control” about school and hockey

Player Testimonial
I enjoyed the reading program and wouldn’t change anything. My school teacher was so impressed with the level of reading I was doing as part of the course. My reading has improved because of the more challenging words I was reading, and I had to think about the content and message both books gave me.”

Player Testimonials
“The Hockey Skill Development was a significant part of the program, although I wish I had spent more time on it. It has improved my skills. My stickhandling is much smoother and faster, and I am overall more comfortable with the puck. My shot is harder and more accurate than before. Also, I am now comfortable doing more than simply my wrist shot on the ice. My feet are faster, and that shows in my skating!”

Parent Testimonials 

“Just wanted to let you know that the program is having a real impact on my son. I walked into his room this morning and his bed was neatly made and pillows were placed carefully! He did this without being asked. Thank you, we are really happy with the program and our son likes his coach, Parker!! Parker is very encouraging, our son and looks forward to his feedback!”

 


“I can’t thank you enough for how wonderful this program has been for our son.  He started sixth grade in a new school this year and his anxiety went through the roof with all the changes. The program became a weekly reminder that he can get through it and become a stronger person because of it. It is so helpful to have that extra encouragement and support from the program and coaches.”

 


“My husband and I just wanted to say thank you so much for the incredible program you are offering to our son. He is truly enjoying every part of it! It has been very inspiring for him to watch the videos and read the stories each week and he loves seeing you each week with his hockey homework along with his great chats with his awesome buddy Coach Ava!”

 

 

“Hi Ben,

I wanted to say congratulations to you and your team on such a great program!

Our son started this program a little reluctantly but really enjoyed it towards the end.  He particularly enjoyed the leadership module, and I have seen many improvements in him since he started, especially in public speaking and confidence to lead a group.  He also enjoyed the hockey homework, and I have seen him use many of the techniques in his games. He enjoyed Covey’s book, and he still talks about being proactive and being win-win.  These skills are so important, and linking it to hockey really resonated with him.

From my perspective, what I enjoyed most as a parent was doing the readings with him.  I haven’t done any homework with him for years, but I promised I would read the books with him.  As a mom, you don’t get much time to spend with your child in grade 9, but this allowed me to spend a few hours a week with him having an adult conversation.  This is a huge benefit to your program that I did not anticipate.

I also work in education.  I am a physician and professor. I spend a lot of time on curriculum development and refinement.  I also wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your program from that perspective. Best of luck for next year.”

 

“We have always enjoyed our experiences at Andrews Hockey and have enjoyed the growth of our children from their participation in a variety of programs. However, Andrews Sports Institute has delivered beyond any other. As a result, we would highly recommend this program to any hockey family interested in taking their children’s game, student skills, and life skills to the next level. The improvement we have seen in our children on ice and off ice performance is astonishing!

Many heartfelt thanks to Andrews Hockey for making this program available to our children.”
