ASI First Period
ASI #1 Program is an extension of Andrews Hockey Growth Programs Personal Growth Sessions. The ASI program focuses on a holistic approach to develop students into confident leaders! The main objective of the program is to provide students with a learning roadmap to identify their goals and follow their dreams. Through self-evaluation, video discussions, hockey skill development, everyday life experiences, and traditional reading exercises, you will develop an understanding of learning, so that you will be in a position to participate productively and effectively in hockey and your academic work.
- Leadership Development –The leadership component provides students with opportunities to develop skills for managing experiences in healthy ways while maintaining a focus on positive goals. Through weekly themes, students will learn the qualities to be a good leader with strong character.
- Reading Program – Over the course of 15 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.
- Hockey Skill Development – This module focuses on four key components (seen below).
