Last weekend, my son started his first hockey school.  It’s basically a learn-to-skate with a bit of hockey thrown in.  He seemed to like it and more importantly, I loved it!  It was quite exciting to see him skating around in hockey equipment and I knew a couple of the other hockey dads which made for a good time.  

There were a ton of kids and lots of instructors and while it seemed like a bit of a zoo, it was extremely well organized.  There was even a dog in the (very) crowded dressing room to add to the fun.

1 My Own Advisor

Thanks for the mention Mike!

No doubt a proud moment for Dad.
Cheers!

2 My University Money

Thanks for including us! I remember going to power skating camps as a tyke. They are definitely very effective for producing better hockey players. Unfortunately I had a lot more fun pretending to be Mario Lemeiux with a puck and stick!

3 Echo

Thanks for the mentions, Mike! That looks more fun (and organized) than the gymnastics class that I took my daughter to this week. Toddlers don’t really take direction too well in a giant indoor playground ;)

4 Tom Drake

Thanks for the love Mike. A couple more years and your son should be able to show the Leafs how to play hockey! ;)

@MOA – Yes, I was very proud.

@MUM – I didn’t see any Mario Lemeiux types out there!

@Echo – Haha. The toddler activities are always good for a chuckle.

@Tom – No doubt.
