The Power of a Leader
True leaders are not those who strive to be first but those who are first to strive and give their all for the success of their team. True leaders are the first to see the need, envision the plan and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader's commitment, the power of the team is unleashed.

Safe Body Checking
Taking a body check NEAR the boards may in fact be more dangerous than being hit AT the boards.   When a player is against the boards, seldom do they have the same momentum or speed that a player who is approaching the boards to get a puck. Losing your balance from a check while you still have momentum can cause you to hit the boards with more force than a check at the boards and without time to protect yourself.   Learn to approach the boards with your head up, on an angle (not head first) and with reduced speed - BE PREPARED TO TAKE A HIT.   If you're a checker, remember we all have a responsibility to respect our fellow players so look to wedge a player towards the boards not to board or hit them from behind.

Shooting immediately off the pass will often catch the goalie out of position, not able to make the save. This skill requires a lot of practice, but it will pay off in goals scored.
-Bend the knees for more power on the shot
-Slide the bottom hand down the shaft of the stick
-keep the wrists tight
-maintain focus on the puck
-position body prior to receiving the pass to release the shot quickly
