The smart hockey players wear a grill. Why the NHL doesn't require it is curious, considering how much money they have invested in the players.

We are a huge hockey family. The sport is growing leaps and bounds while other youth sports like baseball and football are declining.

The real hard thing about hockey, which is a tough thing for people in our immediate gratification society to grasp, it takes time and hard work to become proficient at it.

Unlike most other sports or activities - in hockey, you can't just jump on the ice and start playing. It takes lots of time and effort to learn to skate. But once you can, the speed & action of hockey is second to none!

If you have a little one, it is worth checking out.

My boy is in his 3rd year of youth learn-to-skate. He's only just stopped using the little 'pusher' PVC pipes. What is important to me, is that he is learning persistence. He WANTS to play hockey. To do that he has to skate. To skate he has to practice...it brings me to Paul F's sig:

Quote
Paul F's signature:
Good is the enemy of Excellent. Talent is not necessary for Excellence.
Persistence is necessary for Excellence. And Persistence is a Decision.

My boy has been working on this decision for 3 years. That's commitment that isn't too common from a 3 year old (now 5). He started skating when he was 2 actually. And, no, I'm not pushing him. He asked to try skating. We tried it, he liked it and we kept going back. Last year he was getting tired of going because he still couldn't hold his stick so he stopped going at the end of the season. This year I asked if he wanted to go and he was hesitant. I suggested that he just try one more time without the pusher and he finally spent the entire youth learn-to-skate session standing on his own two feet, er, skates. He seems to be happy as a clam on the ice now.

Age 2:


Age 3:


Age 4 (He can skate alone, but is scared):


Age 5
