The safety and well being of each student athlete is the number one concern of New trier Girls Hockey. In keeping with that philosophy, and because of the increase in recent years of concussions connected to ice hockey, mandatory baseline concussion testing is required for each player. This test is required to be taken prior to the commencement of a player's first season with NTGH and every second season thereafter. Baseline cognitive testing provides information on a child's brain function prior to an injury. If an athlete were to receive a concussion, the baseline test can then be compared to post-injury test. This provides objective data to better assess recovery from a concussion. It is our preference that this baseline test be performed prior to tryouts, but in any event it must be completed by October 1, 2017.
By Kim McCullough, MSc, YCS ~ I'm already seeing a disturbing pattern emerge with many of the girls' hockey players I am working with this season - and the regular season has just started. Whether during practices, games or off-ice training, every single day I hear players saying the most dangerous four-letter word in girls’ hockey - "can't." "I can't crossover that way". "I can't shoot a backhand". "I can't do push-ups". To be honest, "can't" is one of the most frustrating words to a coach. It's not that the players can't do the skills at all; they just can't do them as well as they would like to be able to quite yet. As soon as a player uses the word "can't," they are giving themselves permission to underachieve. After all, if they already know they can't do it, why even try? FULL ARTICLE>>
In an effort to help control inappropriate spectator behavior, AHAI has implemented a rule regarding parent/spectator behavior.
