Once again, the Rosemont shinny program was an amazing success according to Coach Grant Parks and Coach Todd Layton. With 20+ children enrolled, each outing was a spirited affair. The practices are broken into three segments: 1) skills building, 2) hot chocolate break and 3) a scrimmage. The primary objectives of the program, in order, are: fun, skills development and sportsmanship. At the end of the practice, the kids don’t want to leave and over the course of the winter, the kids’ level of skill clearly improves. A special thanks goes out to Jean Blackstock who organizes and manages the entire program. And, a special thanks goes out the “Almost Famous Ice Guys” for continually gracing us with the best ice outdoor ice in Calgary on which to practice. Another great season!
