Community: Who are We? Capital City Crew!
|Index | Archive|
We worked pretty hard during the day to organize all the kids’ equipment (which is all nicer than anything I’ve ever worn) during the day, but it was incredibly gratifying to see their enthusiasm throughout their time at the RecZone, even right at the end of a tough practice. They actually all got into full equipment for the first time – last week was the first time on skates for some of the kids, but yesterday was a first for everyone. If you’ve ever donned hockey equipment, you know that the weight of it all can take a little getting used to. I think they figured out the upside of the pants, shin pads, elbow pads, etc., though: it doesn’t hurt when you fall.
I think the combination of the coaches’ ambition and the kids’ fearlessness really propelled them forward. Their confidence seemed to grow as practice went on, and they really loved the last drill, where they had to skate down the middle of the ice, trying to avoid being hit by tennis balls that the coaches were shooting at them. By the end of the on-ice sessions, I’m sure they’ll be skating like pros.
And don’t forget...
