WHY THE 4?
Girls 4 Hockey helps players improve the 4 core skills needed for on-ice success:
Skating: Edgework, Agility, Speed
Shooting: Type, Accuracy, Power
Stick Work: Possession, Moves, Control
Passing: Technique, Strength, Precision
Small games are also incorporated to enhance hockey sense while allowing players to apply their skills in a competitive and game-like setting
In addition to signifying the 4 core hockey skills, G4H includes number 4 in honor and memory of head coach Meghan Sweezey’s high school teammate, Amanda, who passed away just after the conclusion of Meghan’s last high school season. Amanda taught Meghan a great deal about the power of self-confidence, compassion, and self-understanding, which helped Meghan succeed in her collegiate hockey career and beyond. These lessons have become a large part of Meghan's coaching style and, in turn, an integral part of the Girls 4 Hockey philosophy.
