Tucker Hockey: Your Premier Calgary Hockey School for 19 Years!
Philosophy on Life
Tucker Hockey Philosophy
From the 1999 Open Ice Hockey Summit in Toronto, the leading hockey experts in the country agreed that Canadian hockey players need to improve their technical skills in order to compete successfully in the future.
It was determined that especially young Canadian hockey players are not being taught, and therefore not learning - the offensive skills and creativity of developing European hockey players.
Minor Hockey Philosophy
"A hundred hears from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or what kind of car I drove... but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child."
Adult Hockey Philosophy
"Would you believe I discovered the fountain of youth? To my surprise it was frozen and had a net on either end."
Role and Importance of the Coach
"It is impossible to underestimate the importance of the coach in the development of an athlete. From the youngest Peewee player to the elite athlete, the coach is a pivotal character in the moral as well as the physical development of his or her charges.
The more intensive the training, the greater the opportunity for moulding the athlete’s character and personal philosophy as it pertains to his or her athletic career. Elite athletes appear to cleave their coaches as mentors, guardians, and, in some cases, almost as surrogate parents. They are fortunate indeed if their coach is concerned with their moral and intellectual development as well as their athletic training".
(Report of the Dubin Commission of Inquiry into the Use of Drugs and banned practices intended to increase athletic performance, 1990).
