I must admit, I didn’t know what to expect this morning when I took my oldest son to USA Hockey’s National Try Hockey for Free Day. He was invited to attend from friends of our family and was excited to go.
From the moment we entered the building I was impressed by the hospitality by both the parents and the kids who were volunteering to partner with kids like mine to show them the ropes and encourage them to learn some of the basics.
The mission statement of York Ice Hockey includes the following statement:
We aim to develop well-rounded young men and women through high-quality hockey instruction, physical conditioning, team play, and good sportsmanship.
It’s obvious to me that those leading this program are committed to establishing and maintaining a culture that encourages confidence and team all the while showing that people matter.
I saw first-hand these types of young men and women all over the rink. I’m impressed York Ice Hockey. Keep up the great work.
