SDR Academy Philosophy
Created by Becky McGee and Vaughn Reid, SDR Hockey Academy is a unique program that focuses on physical literacy and sports skills. Think of it as one-stop shopping for sports development. Kids enrolled in the program train with our team of highly acclaimed coaches – all with the goal of improving their sports literacy and their enthusiasm for athletics.
What does physical literacy mean?
To us, physical literacy is a simple concept that means developing the fundamental movement skills that all children need, such as running, hopping, throwing, catching and jumping. We believe that developing these off-ice skills gives kids the confidence to participate in physical activities and sports – for life.
We’ve developed the SDR Hockey Academy to be the right blend of training to physically and mentally prepare and rejuvenate kids. A lot of sports programs focus on game outcomes. At SDR, we are focused on the process, and learning and repeating behaviours that enable confidence and skill improvement.Coach and founder Becky McGee
