“A wealth of information for youth inclusion”

After two years of pioneering in the neighborhood and at the club, the Hockey Foundation is launching a new educational learning program on its renewed website. A wealth of information for youth inclusion drawn from practice and based on scientific pedagogical foundations. Launch to be proud of!

Through the Educational Education Program, the Hockey Foundation empowers coaches, coaches, directors of educational associations, administrators, and others to run clubs to allow children to grow in the athletic, social, emotional, and behavioral domains. Hockey is used as a way to teach children team, association, and life skills as they grow in their lives.

treasuries of knowledge

Specialists of the hockey establishment filled 10 cabinets of knowledge with information on topics in the field of sports education. Cabinets contain information about neighborhood practice and associations and zoom in on the following topics:

1. He grew up in a low-income neighborhood

Children who grew up in a low-income neighborhood do not have the same opportunities as other children. Playing hockey in a club can be a stepping stone for many kids. Together we can guide and contribute to children.

2. Street culture

In order to be able to adopt a conscious attitude towards our target group, this knowledge vault tells us more about the origin and development of street culture than that of the citizen.

3. Sports as a medium

Within the framework of the Hockey Foundation Association, sport is used primarily as a means of contributing to the social and behavioral development of the child. What this means for club policy is recorded in this vault.

4. Floats and laces

Caring for children from a low-income neighborhood, where hockey is a “foreign” sport, requires a specific approach. The different stages, lesson series, and neighborhood path columns are explained in this vault.

5. An educational sporting atmosphere

How do you create an athletic climate that goes beyond the physical experience of sport? How do you create an educational climate in your association and on what pillars is this climate based on? Read it in Vault 5!

6. Focus on the child

How can you not focus on a “child” but rather this child with such a need at this moment? In this vault, you learn to look at behavior and beyond, build rapport and adapt the pedagogical approach to the situation.

7. Life skills

Through a program that focuses on life and bonding skills, we ensure that children can develop better in the athletic, social, emotional and behavioral domains. They learn important life skills such as teamwork, reasoning, disappointment, and problem-solving that help them take control of their situation outside the club and make it more manageable.

8. Parental Involvement and Participation

Without parental involvement there is no club life. In this knowledge vault, the Hockey Foundation introduces the ladder of participation with different levels of parental involvement and explains how best to invest in the relationship with parents in order to take steps up the ladder.

9. Inclusion in the Hockey League

Being inclusive goes beyond opening the doors of your association and saying “everyone is welcome.” It takes active policy making to be inclusive and to remove barriers to participation in the life of the club.

10. Mirror: look at yourself

Are you able to build a positive relationship with children (and their parents), act responsibly and be a role model? Check out in this vault how you scored on this topic and what you can change to really contribute to the expansive development of the child.
