Get the best out of your child or player!

The Program


A child’s future success begins with you as parents or coaches. One of the best ways to help your child or player be successful is to help them build their unique talents into strengths. Identifying a child’s talents can be a challenge for anyone — but it’s also a lifelong opportunity for parents and coaches.


AKHockey’s Mental Strength Development Program can enhance your insights into your child’s talents — his or her natural patterns of thought, feeling, and behaviour — and can support his or her discovery and growth process. It can help you understand your child’s unique perspective of the world. And it can help you guide your child in building on his or her talents to achieve success in school, hockey and in life.


The Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer


One of the tools we use is The Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer. It is based on 40 years of Gallup science and thousands of studies of the talents that help make people successful. It was created from this rich history of research to help youth aged 10 to 14 to discover and develop their talents. A simple truth sprang from this research: Successful people understand their talents and build their lives upon them.
