Thanks to everybody who came out to Ice Breaker on Sunday October 16 at Shanley! Our presenter Andrew Shriver of the PCA-Minnesota shared many stories about his life as a hockey player, parent and coach and how the Positive Coaching Alliance can help all three to create a good environment for developing hockey players.
A summary of the Fargo Angels FAQs is attached below.
If you need to replace your hockey warmup jacket and pants you can order them in the hockey department at Scheels All Sports on 45th Street S. You can try samples for size then place your order and pay Scheels directly. All players are required to arrive at games in their Angels warmups unless approved by the coaching staff.
The deadline for the third shipment is October 24 for Christmas delivery. Jeff Aikens, the Scheels Hockey Manager, can answer your questions.

The Double-Goal Coach
"Each coach is a Double-Goal Coach, with one goal of winning and the second, more important goal of teaching life lessons though sports. As Phil Jackson has said, 'Not only is there more to life than basketball, there is more to basketball than basketball.'
The ROOTS of Honoring the Game are paramount for a Double-Goal Coach: Rules (don't bend them), Opponents (a gift that pushes you to get better), Officials (show respect), Teammates (never embarrass them) and Self (live up to your internal standards).
Coaches coach for mastery using the ELM Tree of Mastery (E for Effort, L for Learning, M for bouncing back from Mistakes) and encourage athletes to give their best effort and work through mistakes and failure.
They encourage players to develop a Teachable Spirit. They fill players' Emotional Tanks with positive reinforcement for effort and every little bit of improvement.
They see themselves as colleagues with other coaches on a larger organizational team, developing Better Athletes, Better People. They try hard to win bu they never forget that athletes on the other team are also members of our larger community."
