RESPECT GROUP ANNOUNCES NEW PROGRAM: LACING UP
Submitted By Web Admin on Monday, April 4, 2016
Respect Group is excited to announce our newest program: Lacing Up, designed for 6-8 year old, entry level players. The program will be available, free of charge, to all Hockey Canada Branches and Member Partners who require certification of the Respect in Sport Parent Program at the Branch/Member Partner level.

From the OHF Web Site

Lacing Up extends Respect Group’s holistic commitment to creating safer, more respectful hockey environments while rewarding our hockey partners for their leadership in doing the same. Lacing Up will be available in July 2016 with more detailed information to follow.

A bit about Lacing Up

Lacing Up is a fun, online, game-based program that helps Novice Players (6-8 year olds) learn the fundamentals of being a successful, respectful young hockey player. Lacing Up focuses on the skills players need to know off the ice to stay healthy, play fair, support their teammates, respect officials, and contribute positively to their team. 
This hour long program, which we encourage parents to take along with their child, covers key curriculum elements; • Long Term Player Development, including; growth and development, nutrition, hydration, and sleep. • Playing fair, including: the Hockey Canada Fair Play Pledge, respect for teammates, officials, and opponents and recognizing that everyone makes mistakes. • Recognizing and dealing with bullying, including: types of bullying, what to do about bullying if you are the target or if you see it happening. • Respect for the game, each other, and ourselves. Young players experience all of this through the stories, adventures, quizzes and games played with five young animated characters, their coach and Puckster.

Some of Lacing Up’s cool features 

The program is built around five modules accessed through a graphical table of contents. The player clicks on the first icon to open Module One and when Module One is complete, the player is taken back to the table of contents and the next icon is unlocked allowing the player to move on to build on their knowledge. 
Lacing Up is a point and click, online experience, which young players move through intuitively. It is supported with simple, easy to follow narrated instructions, colourful graphics, illustrations and music to engage this techno-savvy audience. 
Lacing Up focuses on the important off-ice skills that kids need to help them become respectful young athletes and allows coaches to focus on the fundamental hockey skills/drills that makes great players on the ice.
