At Loudoun Ice Centre, learning, improving, & maintaining the 1-Timer

Hockey is hard. You need to spend time practicing your skills!

[10/13/18]   “You know why I made it to the NHL?

Because on the weekends, I’d get as far away from him as I could. I would stay out of the house all day by myself, with nothing but a hockey stick and a ball. Deking, deking, deking. Shooting, shooting, shooting. Over and over and over until the stick became an extension of my body.

That’s it. That’s why I made it.”

-Patrick O’Sullivan

There is no better place for mites to work on their skating technique
