I’ve played hockey since I was five years old, and I continue to play today. Hockey has taught me so much in my life. Here are my top 5 life lessons that I’ve learned from this wonderful sport and why every kid should play hockey:
1. Hard work
I have been playing hockey for 13 years now, and I can honestly say that nothing makes you a better skater than good old-fashioned hard work. When you’re at practice, you’re focused on the task at hand, and when you do your best, there’s no feeling like it.
2. Never Stop Trying
In hockey, as well as life, it is important to never give up. Whether you are losing a game by one goal or down by three goals with only two minutes left in the third period, you must never give up hope of winning. In life, if you want something enough and work hard enough for it, there’s nothing that can stop you from achieving your goal!
3. Respect for Authority Figures
Hockey has taught me to respect authorities because without them there would be no hockey! If a player disobeys an official or the coach during a game or practice, he/she could receive a penalty or get benched for
Hockey has taught me so many life lessons. It is the reason why I am the person I am today. No matter how much my team and I have struggled over the years, we’ve always been able to bounce back and work together to achieve our goals. Here are five life lessons I’ve learned from hockey:
1) Work ethic
I am a huge sports fan and I watch any sport you can name, but hockey is my favorite sport. I’ve been playing hockey since I was 8 years old and have learned so many life lessons because of it. One thing that really stuck out to me, was how similar hockey is to real life and how much you can learn from hockey. So here are the top 5 things I have learned from hockey, that have helped me in my everyday life:
1. Never give up
No matter what happens, always fight until the end. Whether you’re behind 3 goals in the third period or there’s only a few minutes left on the clock, never give up. You never know what will happen and if you work hard enough, anything is possible.
2. Work together
This one is pretty obvious but it teaches everyone so much about teamwork and working with other people. When you’re playing on a team, you have to rely on your teammates and trust them with your life every time you step onto the ice. If your not working as a team then nothing will ever get done and you will lose every single game.
3. Be disciplined
Being disciplined isn’t just important for when your playing the game but also when your practicing or training outside of games
Hockey is a game that is played by millions all over the world, in almost every country, and at many different levels of competition. From casual pickup games, to local leagues, to international competitions; it doesn’t matter where you play; hockey is the same game.
Hockey is one of the most physically demanding sports out there. It requires skaters to be in peak physical condition in order to compete at the highest level. Playing hockey can teach you many life lessons. Here are 5 of my favourites:
1. Hard work pays off
2. You don’t always win
3. Keep your head up (literally)
4. Don’t give up
5. Have fun!
I’m an avid hockey fan and I love playing the sport. I’ve been playing since I was 4 years old and I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon.
Hockey has taught me a few valuable lessons about life:
– Do not give up, no matter how hard things get.
– You will always be stronger if you work as a team.
– Sometimes, you will win and sometimes you will lose. Whichever happens, keep your head high and know that it’s all part of the game.
– If you feel like something is wrong, it usually is. Don’t ignore your instincts.
– Practice is important if you want to become good at what you do.
Like a lot of Canadians, I grew up playing hockey. It’s an obsession that’s been in my blood from the day I could walk. My first passion was to play in the NHL and win the Stanley Cup. That was quickly followed by a desire to be an NHL referee. When that dream faded I decided to become a hockey journalist, and then make a name for myself writing about the game at all levels.
So far, life has gotten in the way of fulfilling my dreams, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the game. Hockey has taught me so much about life, from how to work hard, deal with disappointment and accepting failure as part of success.
Here are five things hockey has taught me about life:
I grew up in a small town, and the only thing people ever really talked about was hockey. Sports is a major part of Canadian culture, and hockey takes up the majority of that space. Everyone played it; even my dad, who hadn’t donned skates since he was 15, strapped on his old blades when I started playing to coach me.
I’ve been playing ice hockey for 15 years. I love the game. It’s fast, physical, and unpredictable. There’s not a lot of room for error and you can never take your foot off the gas pedal because there is always someone trying to take your spot in the lineup. The game teaches you to be humble, because while you can be at the top one day, you can easily be at the bottom tomorrow if you don’t work hard enough. But more importantly, it has taught me so many lessons as I’ve grown up through the years that have made me who I am today.
1) Value teamwork over individualism
2) Be willing to put in the hard work
3) Stay positive no matter what
4) Respect everyone
5) Don’t let anyone tell you what you can or can’t do
