I wanted to give out a special thanks, as usual to our dedicated instructors, most of whom asked me if they could be there. Our people are a truly dedicated and caring bunch and as I have said before, this is what sets us apart from the competition is our philosophy, dedication, consistency and caring.
Kainoa came in from university in Toronto and was very excited to help us out, even though it was the day after having his wisdom teeth out - Dedication & caring!!
Dave and Tara had been away at a tournament all weekend, but made sure that they were back in time to help out. Dedication and caring!
Gerry (our summer Head Instructor) had been 'injured' most of the week, but called to ask if we needed him and he immediately agreed to come out. Dedication and caring.
Thanks to everyone else who came out there to help us, we had 8 instructors on the ice for 30 students and 6 stations and as always, worked on a rotating station setup, Gerry's balance and skating station was a particular favourite and my 'how not to get scored on like Team Canada did with 7 seconds left against the Swedes station' was very true to a game situation.
Thanks of course to all the parents who brought the students out and the students themselves for a fine effort. We hope to see everyone again at the February clinic or one of the remaining SSE clinics.
HAVE A GREAT NEW YEARS EVE AND DAY - DON'T BE AN IDIOT, NO DRINKING AND DRIVING, TAKE A CAB
