Hockey Fun Day

Hockey Fun Day was something new we tried this year.  A number of events were held through out the day beginning with goalie tips with Brad Topping.  Brad is an accomplished goalie  playing for University of Western Ontario, Kitchener Rangers, Brampton Battalions, Windsor Spitfires and drafted by New York Islanders in 2002. Brad is also a goalie coach for the Strathroy Rockets.  Following this the Strathroy Rockets Trainer assisted by a number of Rockets players put the SCYH participating players through their paces with some drills.  For the amusement of the spectators the coaches game followed with many of us coaches showing how not to do it.  The Family skate that followed was well attended despite the inclement weather.  Pizza and pop fund raiser raised money for breast cancer research, a charity chosen by the Rockets Captain.  The evening was an exciting Strathroy Rockets vs Chatham Marrons where our Rockets came out on top with a 5-3 victory...we think because of the banners / posters made by the SCYH players that were spread out through out the arena.

Many Thanks to Brad and the Rockets for making this a memorable day!!
