Thanks in part to First Shift Administrators, Crystal Bauer, Diana Hoggard and Lewis Kinvig, we had 36 kids registered and on the ice Friday night. It was “All Hands on Deck” to make sure all players were dressed, laced up and on the ice by 5:30!!
All of the children registered for this exciting program have never played hockey before and many of them have never had skates on before last night! It was fantastic to see all those smiling faces out there!
The stands were packed with Parents and Grandparents cheering their players on!
We have many of the Thompson Cariboo Minor Hockey Association’s Coaches volunteering their time on the ice with the First Shift Team … TFS Head Coach Lewis Kinvig, along with Ken Pelley, Eddie Aie, Allison Hunter and Gavin Kellington laced up last night for the first ice session. We have four TCMHA Bantam players who are setting a wonderful example of commitment and leadership by giving up an hour of their next 12 Friday nights to help mentor and coach the First Shift Players; Ali Aie, Hayden Aie, Bryn Hansen and Griff Aie.
We are very happy to be able to host this wonderful program designed to introduce kids in our Communities to the great sport of hockey!
