How can we stop competing and collaborate?

It may sound crazy that we don’t want girls to compete when we are referring to sports. However, hockey is just as a game, it is an opportunity to develop long lasting bonds between the team mates.

 

During the time spent at the field, girls get to know each other, but sometimes they forget that they are the same team, and compete with each other, this is why, as soon as we noticed this was happening between two girls, the coach changed strategy and forced them to collaborate with each other and to be on the “same team” during all exercises while training. It only took a while for them to understand that they were better together.

 

To re-enforce this concept, they also had a cooking day to prepare their own pizzas from scratch as a team and shared it later, and had the visit from a more experienced team to share their story. 

 

Of course this lessons are a work in progress, but this girls sure are taking every advantage to be more empowered and lift each other up.

Game Design & Lightning Super Heroes

Super Heroe

As the year unfolds, and with participants loving tech challenges, they created a game that testes participants speed using buttons out of makey- makey (an electronic invention tool and toy that allows users to connect everyday objects to computer programs). This required to invent the game, design the hardware and also write the code. An afternoon filled with creativity and fun. 

 We also received the visit of Denise, a local artist who showed her “lightning superheroes” - soft superheroes figures with a touch device that lights up, so with her inspiration, everyone created their own superhero with their special superpower and learnt how to create and connect the wires to work properly. 

For the next months we are planning to code an app that helps solve every day issue, so we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on a daily problem that you’d need help with.

New Games, New Lessons

After some weeks of hard training, the effort is starting to pay off, girls feel better and more confident in their skills and with her abilities. They trust each other to have their backs as true team mates do. 

As a team they had their first test playing against another team on a match, where the important thing was not who won, but how did they face the situation, and it was a true success- they never lost faith in their team mates and they continued to suppport each other at all times. After the game, all teams shared a common meal where they got to know each other, share their experiences, and even some advice on some hockey techniques.
