Cornered Coach: Stand on Guard for Thee

It's one of the best memories of any hockey parent's life. The first time your little Gretzky or Wickenheiser-wannabe stands at attention for "O Canada.” A lot of Canadian kids first strike the pose in the basement – the prelude to chasing a tennis ball around with a mini-stick.

Mom Mondays: Sorting Out for Sort-Outs

House league sort-outs are this weekend for us, how about you? Are you ready? Some associations seem to drag out the sort-outs over several weekends. They rebalanced the teams and scrimmage again.

Cornered Coach: Cutting to the Chase

Story: Mike Toth | 14/09/17 | (0) Comments |
