I started hockey in my later adult years; with my athletic abilities in other sports (soccer, softball, volleyball) I figured why not? I haven’t looked back since! I skated out my first year playing and then switched to goalie and have practiced my craft protecting the net ever so meticulously, some may say to a fault but heck I am a goalie and that’s what we do!
I credit my ongoing improvements and successes on the ice to my coaches and teammates and teams throughout the years (yes I play on a few teams), because without their feedback and support, I wouldn’t be playing at the level I am today.
The game of hockey is awesome and one of the very best.
I love my teammates and would do just about anything for them.
Herb Brooks said many things right, about the game … the one that has made an impression on me as of late…

Do you have any pre-game rituals before stepping on the ice? Dress the same way each game/practice.
