BC Hockey in Our Schools Parent Orientation Presentation
BC Hockey in our Schools BC Hockey in cooperation with the Ministry of Education proudly unveils a student development and activity curriculum. Hockey is synonymous with Canada and we believe all BC students should experience life’s learning outcomes through a hockey experience! We know they will find hockey an exhilarating learning environment.
Background The program involves six on-ice sessions formatted into a teaching unit. The suggestion is that these sessions each be 45 minutes of on-ice activity (may be varied with ice availability). Each on-ice session is easily adaptable to the various hockey skill levels of the students by breaking the ice into stations. Pilots were successful with up to 70 students on the ice at one time in Level 1 – Primary!
