Grant Parks' Final Shinny Report

The 2013/2014 shinny season has drawn to a close. It has been a fantastic year. 24 children were registered this season and on many nights we had turnouts of 20+. It has been a cold winter and we had 8 outdoor sessions. The ice at the ODR was the best in recent memory… thanks Ice Guys! It is very rewarding to see the kids develop substantially over a 2 month period. Each child made obvious and large improvements in their skating and hockey skills. However, the most important thing is that everyone had a lot of fun!! Thanks are extended to: · The Ice Guys: for providing such an appreciated resource… the ICE! · The coaches: Grant Parks & Todd Layton · The assistant coaches: Danielle Parks & Paulina Westergard · The brains of the operation: Jean Blackstock · The parent: for freezing on the sidelines while their kids were warm on the ice It was a great year. Have a great spring/summer everyone!
