I Need Your Feedback

I Need Your Feedback

While I have really enjoyed getting into this blog and the consistency of posting every Monday and Thursday, I want to make sure that I am touching on issues that you all feel are relevant and interesting. 

Being involved in the game as a player, and now as a head coach for the past seven years, has definitely given me an interesting perspective on hockey. 

I've touched on it a bit in a few posts over the past few months, but I think there are some glaring issues facing players today that don't get focused on as much as they should. 

Things like building confidence, learning to be consistent, being a great teammate, creating a pregame routine that has your ready to play your best everyday, setting goals, developing a process, being accountable, learning to deal with success and failure... 

Well, I guess that's more than a few items but I think that gets the message across of what I'm talking about. 

My question is, do you think that the above mentioned items are areas that you as a player (or parents reading this, your son/daughter) could improve on?

I would really love some feedback on this.

I've been throwing around ideas about how to help combat these areas in players but want to get some honest feedback first. 

Like I said, I think this is an incredibly underdeveloped area in so many players games, yet is an area that could help so many players reach their full potential. 

Please take a couple minutes and post a comment on this post or send me an email directly at matt@boosthckey.com

Looking forward to hearing from you and getting this conversation started. 

Until Thursday...

    I’m not following because of hockey Matt, I’m following because this is your blog. So far, I feel most of your content translates off the ice – certainly to any sports or competitive situation – but also to life in general. Thanks for your consistent commitment! My only suggestion would be to try and share some actual real life stories that support the messages you are delivering. It helps me remember!
