Becoming a Team and facing challenges.

A brand new team started training, and as we often say – hockey is just the excuse- what we really focus on is on girls developing key life skills that will make a big difference in their future. 

Growing their self steem by acknowledgingthey can improve, learn new drills and feel as a part of a team is key for girls empowerment, so that is where all of our efforts are focused.

During this period, at the begining it was all about creating the team, making each individual feel important and part, then developing their love for the game by teaching new drills and train harder each day, lastly work on the development of life skills such as effective communication and frustration management, developing their grit. 

The team,  also had some challenges when playing again other teams, putting all their efforts into test, but mainly how they worked as a team, this moments where great opportunities for “teaching moments” as many difficulties where faced.

A new year full of new challenges.

As we start to say goodbye to the summer vibes, and kids start a new school year, we get ready to receive a new group of participants in our Field Hockey program. 

During this time, we made a recap of all our learning during 2018 and made a new plan for this year to be even more fun and filled with experiences for the girls, and we made a whole book filled with exercises so that every training session is the best possible. 

Activities will start next week with participants, and to make sure that every girl in the area had a chance to participate, we visited every school in the area (over 20) and talked in every class room to invite girls to join our team, and gave them a cool brochure with all the info for them to participate.

As we start to say goodbye to the summer vibes, and kids start a new school year, we get ready to receive a new group of participants in our coding program. 

During this time, we made a recap of all our learning during 2018 and made a new plan for this year to be even more fun and filled with experiences for participants- in fact our teachers had a lot of fun making robots (as seen on the pict)

Though every year we receive a new group of participants, that doesn’t mean that we loose touch with those who participated in previous years, in fact, one of our 2018 participants, had an idea for an app and he wanted to pitch it, so, our teacher organized a meeting with an app development company for him to do so. It was a great meeting, and he got great feedback to keep trying, to not give up on his dreams and ideas and to always remember that Edison didn’t fail 100 times, he just found 100 ways things didn’t work out properly.
