The reason I got involved with HockeyXtra is due to the people involved with this great endeavour and the message they put out regarding the great game of hockey. I have been fortunate enough to have worked with them before on projects ranging from hockey association golf tournaments to sledge hockey fundraisers, and the positive hockey message is always the main idea. I have been fortunate enough to have two sons play hockey since they were 5 years old, and have seen first hand how a positive hockey experience helps children develop great skills that apply to every part of their lives. I believe that the teamwork, accountability, hard work, and of course fun has played a big part in their overall personality.
