We started the first of the regular season in last place and through some great improvements in your skill levels and the coalescence into a unified team over the five months of hockey you all managed to finish the regular season as the 2nd place team.  This was a great accomplishment and all of you guys should be Very Proud of that.  We really see how this Rec league has promoted the skills of each of you players and we’re so glad that this league was initiated and that we were all able to take part in it.

 I know you guys may be bummed a bit from ending up third in the Provincials but that is not how you should feel at all.  You showed in the first three games of the Provincials what quality hockey is all about.  You had some of the best passing, puck handling, speed, skating, shots, and sportsmanship that could possibly be expected from any Bantam team anywhere.  We heard from some other coaches in different levels of how well our team played and acted on the ice during those games.  Kudos to all of you young men who have elevated your game to such a great height in this Bantam season, Great Job Guys!  We have had a great journey through this season and one full of many players’ personal accomplishments.


Now let's have a fun time at the St. John, NB Dairy Queen Spring Finale Tournament this coming weekend.

Practice Comments

Those of you who attended the practice in Crapaud this past Tuesday; I wanted to let you know that most of you really worked hard and pushed yourselves, which is exactly what you need to do at our practices.  It's about working as hard and fast as you can and doing so through the whole practice.  This strengthens your muscles as well as gives you much more stamina during your games so that you can go out each shift as hard and fast as you can and outskate the other teams.

The other thing to remember at the practice is to do, or try your best to do, all the drills as we describe them to you.  If you don't get it right away don't worry about it but you must continue to try the drills as these drills are focussed on improving your skills and your game.  So never fall back to something that is known and easier but continue to work on the drills as they are described to you.  After all that is what practices are about learning new things and improving your skills.

Most of you guys had a fantastic practice and we're all very proud of you for working so hard.  We're also very proud of you for never giving up during our games and pushing and playing as hard as you can to the end.  We've outplayed the other teams the last 5 games and been pressuring them in their end the majority of the time.  We need to focus on shooting more at their net and being there for the rebounds as well as being prepared defensively for any break-outs.  We have a great team and you all are some of the best players in our league.  Keep up the great playing and continue to give it your all every game right to the end.  We'll be there on the winning side of the scoreboard if you continue to do so.  Remember also that you are still making some of the best plays of your hockey careers and you will continue to do so with the determination you are showing.  There have been some great personal triumphs in the season so far and you guys will remember those plays for the rest of your lives.

We really enjoy working with you because of your great attitudes, hard work, and perseverence so keep it up.

Merry Christmas guys and all the Best for 2011!

Practice Committments

Great Practice Last Evening Guys!  Great job on hussling, staying with the drills, and keeping your heads up.

It's very important to remember that your practice time is critical to attend and that you need to work as hard and skate as fast as you can at all times of the practice.  Not only is this time buildng your skills and our teamwork but it is also building up your stamina and your strength so that during games you won't get winded as quickly and will have strong legs throughout the whole game.  Try to keep this in mind in our next practice and go full out all the time so that you are totally exhausted and sweating buckets by the time practice is done.  You'll be more fit and better prepared for the upcoming games if you do.

If you can't make a practice please contact Greg, Dak, or Troy and let us know so we are aware who is going to be on the ice and we can organize our practice time and drills appropriately.

Again, Great Practice and keep up the great work and great team spirit ... We are Rocking now ... Let's keep it going and keep getting better and faster ... We can make ourselves the team that others will have to beat on the road to provincials!
