Introducing the FHBC RESPECT Program
RESPECT is the collective responsibility of everyone involved in field hockey to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place.
We will be continuing to soft launch our RESPECT Program through the remainder of the 2016-17 Season. We have already had positive feedback from the initial roll-out at the T2C Championships, the T2T Festival and the VIT.
The intent of the Program is to target all levels of the game. Through ongoing education and awareness, this program is designed to address concerns related to poor coaching practices, abuse of umpires/officials, respect between players, and issues involving spectators and fans on the sideline. The RESPECT Program will target local, regional, and provincial field hockey programs and events throughout the junior and senior seasons. The program will attempt to inspire community clubs and leagues to implement and promote the campaign, and promote positive behaviours within their respective environments.
More information will become available as the Program is fully launched at the start of the 2017-18 Season.
The document RESPECT was attached to this post.
Tomorrow brings us to our last Stellar’s Jay (SJ) session with Nick and Poonam. We also have a special YOGA session run by Nina Greaves at 7pm for cool down (Group I) and warm up (Group II).
Nina is a certified Yoga Instructor & Pre/Post Natal Specialist and started her Yoga journey over 20 years ago due to a serious accident that almost left her with permanent life threatening injuries. Due to the power and strength of Yoga she was able to make a full recovery and has been teaching Yoga for over 15 years.
Nina taught Hatha yoga and variations at Fusion Fitness Studio in Steveston, Richmond and Steveston Community Centre, and Minoru Centre from 2002 – 2010. She is presently teaching Yoga in an all boys school at Vancouver College.
“Yoga” is a process rather than a goal. Nina’s philosophy is simple, yoga is for everyone with no judgement and it’s always important to listen and respect what your body is telling you. Yoga helps control and soothes emotions, removes anxiety through stretching and breathing, and increases mental focus and physical performance.
We encourage everyone to attend. PLEASE BRING A YOGA MAT
