First Shift equals Big Smiles
Submitted By Michelle Brown on Tuesday, October 29, 2019
Saturday morning was the most exciting day for 45 of the newest hockey players in Northumberland!

This crew has been patiently waiting for their turn to gear up in brand new hockey equipment and hit the ice.

It was nothing but smiles and excitement for the group of 6-10 year olds as many of them stepped onto the ice for the first time ever!

The buzzing group of participants all brought with them their own group of fans - Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and siblings all filled the Pond to cheer on and watch with pride.

The goal of the First Shift program is to remove some of the barriers that exist with hockey and to give everyone a chance to try out and fall in love with Canadas favourite sport!

Participants all get the opportunity to learn the basics of hockey in a fun, affordable and safe manner.

Many thanks to our Head Instructor; Jaclyn Diminie for taking the lead with this group for another session.  Jaclyn and her group of super fun volunteers easily share their passion and love for hockey with the kids.

Also, a big thank you to our Director of Development; Adam Holzmann for his efforts in coordinating this amazing opportunity for our community.
