New to Hockey?

While ice hockey may seem like a daunting task for you and your child to undertake, the life
lessons are invaluable for developing young girls and boys. Discipline, Teamwork and Self
Reliance are the three main pillars in the development of your child. Discipline, respect for your teammates and opponents within the controlled chaos of the ice rink. Teamwork, five skaters and a goalie in a totally fluid environment moving a puck with a singular objective to score a goal. Self reliance, heavy bag, all that equipment, tying those skates, all things your skater learns to do by themselves in the first few months of ice hockey.
