To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. The players found the games tiring, difficult and said they would lose interest quickly in the sport if that was what they faced. See how adult players opened their eyes to what is being taught by the American Development Model of cross-ice hockey and small-area games. Learn more at ADMKids.com.

After a 2-1 victory over Norwest last night, Keon Fox (shown above after last years City Championship Victory) and the BAA Hawks are headed to a 5th and deciding game in the City Championship Final for the second straight year. A win in this game will mark the 3rd City Title for the Neebing BAA's in 4 years.
Smith and Associates PWA Neebing Hawks defeated Westfort Suncor in game 3 of the City Championship Series A division to claim the trophy and cap off a sensational season. "When they were good they were very good, and when they were at their best, they were unbeatable!" said Coach Jarvis.
The Peewee AA Hawks beat the Westfort Rangers two straight to win the City Championships. Coach Hannula said "one of the keys to our success was that in pressure situations you could look down the bench and there wasn't any player we couldnt count in that situation."
