7 reasons why kids play ice hockey
- IT'S SAFE - Ice hockey is a very safe sport to play. In all leagues under 14 years of age "checking" is not permitted. Players have padding and helmets to protect against falls and collisions.
- IT'S FAST - Ice hockey is a fast, exciting team game. Skating fast and shooting the puck makes for an exhilarating combination.
- SKILL DEVELOPMENT - Players learn to develop four basic skill sets – skating, puck handling, passing and shooting. The balance learned is a tremendous advantage in other sports.
- SIZE DOESN'T MATTER - Physical size is not important. Ice hockey caters for big and small. At junior level, it is all about skill and finesse.
- GIRLS AND BOYS - Girls and boys compete on an equal basis.
- IT'S A TEAM GAME - The beauty of the sport is that it combines the skill of the individuals that play together and contribute as a "team". Valuable life skills like team work, communication, persistence, mental attitude, sportsmanship and problem solving, are developed.
- OPPORTUNITIES TO PLAY - When players reach a certain level of competence, there is a great opportunity to travel. Teams have been sent to Australia, Canada, USA, Japan, South Africa, Korea, China, Ireland, Mexico, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Italy, Romania, Turkey, Iceland and the Czech Republic.
For all these reasons, ice hockey is a fun, social, positive and memorable experience for those who play it. It is by far ..........
