Howdy folks! It’s nice to be back. My next blog session actually won’t begin for a few more weeks yet. But I thought it might be a good idea to give you a quick rundown of what to expect in the next series...
Parents, as you know there are many sports your children can attempt. Should ice hockey peak their interest, we’re dedicating the next blog series to arming you with the information you’ll need about the sport we love. This way, when your child comes to you and says, “I want to play like Alex Ovechkin,” you’ll be able to play your role like a pro.
This new “Beginners Series,” will cover:
- Registration - The expense for each division (age group), when to enroll, and how to know if your child is ready.
- Rules - For those of you who are learning about the game along with your child.
- Positions - The names and responsibilities of each.
- Skates - How to properly size skates, as well as tips on how to get the best fit.
- Sharpening - The when, where, why and how of skate sharpening will help your kids get the most out of their skates.
- Sticks - Types, proper length, taping technique, and more.
- Equipment - A breakdown of the gear from head to toe and the expenses of each.
These upcoming topics and many others will give you a great head start in the world of youth ice hockey. Also, as this will be a weekly series, please feel free to suggest related topics you want to read about. After all, this blog is for you!
Stay tuned, exciting things are on the way. Thanks for reading!
