i think any sport or club is good for kids ... i never played hockey when i was a kid but my kids LOVE it ... please let the kids from this community have the opportunity to love it too!
hockey has the ability to teach us so much ... rules, regulations, safety ... but more than that it can teach us compassion, respect, restraint, responsibility, forgiveness ...the list is endless.
obviously hockey is not the only way to learn these things but its a team building activity and lots of people get to be involved at once not just one person at a time ... and it FUN!
its an activity that a person can enjoy for their whole lives - as a participant or as a spectator. it is an activity that can bring out the best in people and it can bring out the worst in people.
it can teach people to play nicely with others and share and it can teach people to help your neighbour and be a good citizen.
it gets people up off the couch and OUTSIDE!
PLEASE VOTE NOW!!
