Why play hockey?
More than a game
Hockey is a big part of life in Canada, and a big part of who we are as Canadians. It’s easy to see why – hockey helps young people develop skills on the ice that build a foundation for a lifetime. Hockey builds general athletic ability that can carry over to other sports, and also builds confidence and pride, improves focus and develops responsibility. With an emphasis on fun, hockey is a game to be played and enjoyed for life.
Ask anyone who has played hockey about the friends they make and they’ll tell you that some of their best friendships started on the ice. Players walk into the locker room at the beginning of the year as strangers but leave with lifelong friends. Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on ice, this camaraderie encourages teamwork and the natural development of leadership skills.
Prepare for success
Right from the start hockey teaches young players to balance school and responsibilities at home with time at the rink – valuable time management skills that will serve them well later in life. The lessons learned playing as part of a team build character and leadership skills from a young age that are just as important in a boardroom as they are on the ice.
Hockey is fun
Hockey can be a serious game sometimes, but at KC Hockey we always remember that players need to have fun if they are to get the benefits. We offer a range of teams and programs that suit every player, so they’ll always remember the thrill of carrying the puck in on a breakaway, the exhilaration of scoring their first goal or making that amazing save.
