The Manchester Phoenix Community Sports Foundation are offering schools in the Greater Manchester area the chance to meet members of the J Davidson Manchester Phoenix!
This programme is one of our core programmes, introducing our sport and our team to the community, offering an alternative educational experience than most other sports teams provide.
We have several modules we can use to offer a programme covering healthy lifestyle, anti bullying, say no to drugs etc. which can be tailored to schools requirements, using ice hockey and our staff to deliver direct to a class. We also offer some basic hockey coaching as well, teaching the basics of stick handling, passing, shooting etc. using our staff who will pass on their experience to the school.
We think this mix of educational material, sport and interaction with staff will offer something exciting and different to other clubs.
However we also offer free tickets to everyone in the class to come and watch the team as our guests to a match of their choice.
For more information contact Pete Hagan through any of the methods on our 'Contact Us' page.
As part of our presentation, we cover a range of topics and
Team work is a vital element of sport to achieve your goals, s it is off the rink too. Working together allows people to achieve their potential and interact. Through hockey, in any of its forms, we can use lessons taught on the field of play and transition them in to the class room and every day life.
Using modules in our presentations and coaching sessions we can help encourage people to think about exercising to keep themselves healthy and have fun at the same time. The sessions will aim to teach the basics of the game with the emphasis on the FUN of FUNdamentals, to help keep them active because they want to enjoy themselves, not just because they are told to exercise.
With our school presentations we aim to teach the basics of healthy eating, which benefits people in 2 ways;
1) It potentially cuts down the risk of several health problems and
2) It can improve alertness in the class room, a bonus for the kids and the teachers.
How Good Ice Hockey Is!
By introducing our playing staff to children, giving a basic introduction to the game and some basic coaching as well, we hope to show that the sort of hockey is a great game to learn and be involved in. The game sometimes doesn’t get a positive portrayal, but the game can offer so much to those involved at any level, life skills, team work, confidence, discipline to name but a few. All these qualities can help improve a persons life, both young and old and through the game we hope to teach these and show the fun of being part of a team and sport.
