SHC Novice 1 Mustangs
This year’s Novice 1 team is off to a great start. In all games played their record is 6-2. The team’s success so far can be attributed to a real team attitude. These 7 & 8 year olds play positional hockey, skate hard, pass and give a good effort in games and practices. This isn’t always evident at this level of hockey. The team is made up of two first year novice players with the remainder of the players in their second season. With their positive attitude this year is sure to be a lot of fun. – Lee Therres – Head Coach
