Ice Hockey Practice for Chine Grade 7 - 8 team

Check out this VIDEO our first practice:

Yes, I am reporting on the latest crazy passion of mine... I now attend 2 hockey school lessons per week, so I'm feeling much more comfortable in my equipment and skating. Supervising and organizing this team has been hectic to say the least. In all my Teacher-Librarian experiences, this has to rank very high... one of the most exciting extra-curricular sports I ever supervised.

YAY TEAM!! This year they are:
Adelaide F., Annika A.,Brandon T.,Chris P.,Dain B.,Dylan V.,Jacob R.,Matt D.,Max A.,Tomas P.

Today was the second practice held at McGregor Arena for our grade 7-8 hockey team. I am so thrilled to be part of this group as their supervisor.  Passing skills are coming along, and today... I SCORED A GOAL ON DAIN, our fantastic goalie... he let one slip by!

I'm so proud of the whole team, they worked very hard on drills and a practice game. We're so lucky and thankful to have TWO DADS who are our ice coaches leading the students. Thanks go out to our parent volunteers - Mr. Rick Froner and Mr. Steve Blankley!!  Thanks also to our principal,
Mrs. Kanellos-Mavraganis for all her cheering and support behind the scenes.

Looking forward to a great season!
