Hockey Isn’t Just a Sport – It’s Our Life!

Hockey isn’t just a sport for us – it’s a way of life! Both of my boys play competitive hockey, and while our schedules are insane during the school season, we wouldn’t change it for anything.

Hockey has taught my kids about teamwork, discipline, setting and achieving goals, working hard, and striving to excel.  Hockey builds confidence, resilience and inner strength. School and hockey go hand in hand – when kids excel in school, they also do well in hockey and vice versa.

Our hockey journey has been an amazing one so far. My son’s team made it to the provincial finals, and also won the International Silver Stick in their division, which is like the Stanley Cup for minor hockey!

They’ve met Walter Gretzky who came ready with a pen in hand to sign their jerseys. They had a rare opportunity to meet Mike Kitchen and snap pics with the Stanley Cup. My son and I had the privilege of attending a World Cup of Hockey game and meeting superstar Connor McDavid!
