    Santa bring you any sweet presents?

    My daughter got 7.5 x 9’ of hockey shot tiles & a SuperDeker. The tiles just give her a little more room to stick handle around in her shooting area. The SuperDeker is kinda fun.

    The Sweet Spot

    Heading to Kitchener for a little hockey with my little one. Getting to play the #1, 4, 16 & 24 teams from Canada. Going to be a tough weekend and I look forward to watching the girls compete. Good family fun, can’t wait!

    private power skating prices

    No, coaches ice or free skate, but never many others on the ice. Another coach or 2 with a kid or two each, during a free skate, done at odd times that usually has a few kids at worst, nobody else out there or another 1-1 at best. Would be tough to get a regular hour of ice here regular, plus it’d be $135 + cost of the Coach.

    private power skating prices

    Currently paying $45 for 45 minutes. Usually goes over, close to an hour.
  6. Well, yet to skate on them, but ran my skates through 4 passes and edges were perfect. Prechecked my daughter skates before putting them in and off 2 lines(whatever that means, other than off a chunk, sharpened at local shop Thursday). Took 8 passes and perfect. As far as I’m concerned, money well spent already.

    The Venting Spot

    In Denver playing hockey, daughter snapped her primary stick in warmups for game 1. Game 2 cracked the blade of her back up stick. We actually brought 3 sticks, always seem to now, but heading to Pure Hockey to do some shopping this afternoon before game 3...
  9. That’s interesting, when having my skates & my daughters done last week, I left with the feeling my +/- 20ish sharpenings were gone. Something to the effect of “Hey, E.J., we’re not doing the Platinum Membership sharpenings anymore. So these are free, but we’re starting a flat $10 a sharpening.” I didn’t even ask if I was losing all my credit sharpens, feeling like that is what he was saying. There was no, Hey we’ll take these two off and when you run out, it’s going to be $10 each pair.
  10. Ordered the unit, starter pack, 5/8th fire ring & the edge checker. Was going to get the travel case, but figured for $400 and can only think twice we’ve had to get a sharpen at a tournament, I could do without it. Maybe if they do the 20% off accessories again in the future, I may pick that up as well. Seems a little overkill to travel with it, but maybe it’d come in handy for the team? Look forward to hearing your thoughts. All the positive feedback make me feel pretty at ease, including the endorsement of one of our local rink managers, who has/uses one at the rink. I’ve yet to have any of our skates sharpened by one.
  11. After my local Pure Hockey told me they were ending their sharping deal with the platinum membership & extras with skate purchases etc(I don’t remember the last time I actually paid for a sharpening) & are going to a flat $10 a sharpen, let alone depending on who was working, sometimes a sketchy cut, I decided it was time to pull the trigger on this. We have 3 skaters and though my son and I tend to go too long between sharpens, seems my daughter wants a fresh sharpen about every 4-5 skates. Ordered tonight, meh...what do I have to lose.

    Keeping Jersey Out of Pants?

    Just wanted to express my disappointment that a Coach is driving this.

    Levels of Girls Hockey

    She does not have to play T1 to advance past HS. Showcases are a good option to get noticed as well. Kids can sign up as individuals at most of them. Getting to girls camps @ Universities of interest is also good. Ultimately, playing at the highest level she can find and get out to showcases in front of scouts. There is also the option of billeting, if that was something your family was interested in doing. Skate Like a Girl!

    So sorry. It’s such a difficult road and unfortunate that our pups don’t share our life span. Sending you positive JuJu.

    I’m and idiot(happens more than I’d like). Getting ramped up for the season. Though the pup didn’t “need” a stick, she’s put a beatin on her primary(been using it for a solid 7 months?), so just added another to an order of other junk, random purchase. Got it home, cut it and said no outside work( shooting gallery with a pad, she’ll take clappers until the sun sets), just ice. Mom takes her to a stick and puck & she tells me “Too stiff dad, no flex.” Ordered the 67, not the 60.... GREAT!!!
