In Their Own Words

I grew up in Saudi Arabia, didn't have hockey let alone ice skating...watched my son play for several years here in Minnesota before I finally decided to try a clinic with some friends 4yrs ago. I was hooked from day #1 and consider it the best decision I ever made!! I am doing things on skates now that I never thought possible in the beginning. What a great community, filled with wonderful people who share the same passion to learn and better themselves through the best sport on earth!! I live and breathe for the next opportunity to play. Now I can jump in on some outdoor pond hockey with high school kids in the winter and have the time of my life!
