AFHL ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT - ATHENA HAUCK

This month’s AFHL Alumni Spotlight focuses on Athena Hauck, a former Rocky Mountain Raider. Athena is currently in the Bachelor of Health Science program at Mount Royal University, and has a goal of becoming a Research Scientist of health in the future. Away from the rink, her favourite sport is canoe/kayak polo, which she has been playing since she was seven, and enjoys it because it is very unique and different from hockey. Athena’s favourite part about hockey is creating relationships and experiencing special moments with those same people. ATHENA’S BIO >


AFHL’s COACHES CORNER - PUCK RETRIEVALS AND BREAKOUTS

When practicing Puck Retrievals & Breakouts, look to focus on specific components. By separating out the different components, it is much easier to identify strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities. On most teams, you will find subtle skill deficiencies that are limiting the efficiency of the entire breakout process. VIDEO NOTES >
