Do you dream of making your High School Field Hockey team, being a starter on the Varsity Team by your sophomore year, or maybe being the MVP of your Varsity Team by your senior year? Or, maybe you have even bigger dreams of earning a scholarship to play field hockey in college, or being on the Olympic Field Hockey Team some day in the future?
Whatever your field hockey dreams may be, one thing is for sure – you need to set SMART goals along the way to help achieve these dreams.
What are SMART Goals?
Specific – be specific with what you want to accomplish or achieve
Measurable – establish concrete criteria for measuring your progress
Attainable – when you set goals, you begin to figure out ways to make them come true
Realistic – your goal must represent something you are both willing and able to work towards
Timely – set a time frame, otherwise there’s no sense of urgency to achieve your goal!
This summer is the perfect time for you to set goals and crush them come the Fall Season! Let your coaches, parents and friends know what your goals are, so they can help you accomplish them!
