Happy Friyay Whalers Family!
First, I would like to thank everyone for getting the players to the rink on time. I understand the struggle is real! I know, I travel from Old Saybrook, nothing is close. However, you don’t realize the value the players get with some one-on-one pregame development time. We have been seeing some great progress and growth from all the players. We believe they are buying into our philosophy of WORK HARD, SUPPORT/TRUST your TEAMMATES and have FUN!!!!
Second, I wanted to address some of the grumblings I have been hearing about mis-matched games. The coaching staff is aware of this issue. We are currently working with the scheduler to reschedule games for more competitive teams. However, this is not an easy task. Most teams have their schedules already set. Please remain patient!
Lastly, we are impressed with the way this team has handled the season so far. We know that the results of some of the games have not been in our favor, but the growth of the players has been exciting to watch. This team plays with all HEART. As coaches, we love that and couldn’t be prouder!
Learn something new.
Try it in a game.
Lose the puck.
Learn from it.
Then try it again.
Don’t let mistakes, the fear of failing, or grumpy, yelling parents mess up your process!!!
Let have a great weekend!
