Hockey school filled with praise

Hockey school filled with praise

During the week of Aug 15 to 19 we had the pleasure of being able to run a hockey school at the local Sicamous district arena.

With this being our first year running the school at this location we were not sure what to expect having just spoken to Wayne March by telephone and e-mail during the course of the year.

What we found, and were delighted to find was an absolutely marvellous facility and staff. From the moment we arrived everybody marvelled at the care and love that was taken into keeping the arena and surrounding area looking the way it does. We had every one of our parents visiting from the Coast comment on how clean, organised and accommodating the staff and Wayne were.

The fact that the school was a success, and we will be back next year with expanded sessions, was because of them. You can always tell when somebody loves something they do because of the work and attention to detail that is shown and this is certainly true with this administration and staff.

To Wayne March and his staff at the district arena we wish you all the best during the winter season.

Good luck to the Eagles, and look forward to seeing you again in the summer of 2012.

Rob Gagno, Ryan Turner,
