Whether you’re taking your first strides or digging decades-old gear out of the rafters for another season of adult hockey, it’s an exciting time of year and an opportunity to write your hockey story on a fresh sheet of ice. For the coaches, it’s an opportunity to begin anew down the skill development path with an eager group of players. Imagine where they’ll be in March, after you’ve helped unlock their potential. And for the parents and volunteers, it’s time for the hockey family reunion, when we’re all together again at the rink, helping make memories that will last a lifetime.

Here's to a great season.
