It’s so much fun that another hockey season is already underway!
With school in full swing and ice in our rinks, there are plenty of reasons to get excited about another year of the sport we love.
We worked on our skills all summer and now it's time to put them to good use. Here are just some of the reasons that the new hockey season has us excited:
Maybe you worked on mastering a new skill in the off-season. It's time to show that on the ice. Perhaps you picked up a basketball and baseball and became a more well-rounded athlete. It’s an exciting time to see how much we’ve improved over the summer months and to show all the new skills we've learned.
Every time we put on our jerseys we are representing our hometown. We get to showcase the pride we have in where we are from when we hit the ice. Being respectful at the rink shows that we care about others and want to leave a positive impression on those around us. Let's represent our team well.
When we volunteer at a food bank or assist in a charity event, we proudly wear our jerseys. The community shows our team a lot of support and we can hear their cheers on the ice so we are happy to give back some of our time to make our neighborhood a better place.
It’s important to use our time wisely. With homework now being added to our daily schedules, creating a plan for managing our time with hockey becomes ever more crucial. Both homework and hockey are important and giving maximum effort in both will only lead to more success.
Time management is an important tool that we will use this season. Getting the proper amount of sleep and eating the right kinds of food will help us on the ice. These are some of the responsibilities that players can help to take on at home.
