To: Novice B Flames, optional team skate--Friday, February 18th, 7:00, Pointe Clare Arena

Several of the Novice B Flames, including William McCusker and Thomas Diekmeyer, --as well as their families,-- will be going to the public skating at the Pointe Claire Arena this Friday at 7:00 to loosen up for their big game this weekend against the Jets.

It is an entirely optional skate, that will give the kids a chance to socialize in a relaxed atmosphere.
Hope to see you there.

Games versus practices

Fifty minutes of ice time or fifteen minutes of ice time?

Most kids enjoy playing in the hockey games far more than they do attending practice. In fact attendence at games is typically twice as high as attendence in practices. But which is better for your child's development?

One clue is by evaluating ice time. A typical one hour game works out to about 30 minutes of stop-time action. That means if there are ten skaters, your child will be on the ice for 15 minutes. And since there are nine other kids on the ice, he'll touch the puck about 10 percent of the time, or for about 1.5 minutes per game. Weaker players occasionally don't touch a puck even once during a game.

On the other hand, for most practices, your child will skate for the full 50 minutes. He'll get a good workout and much of that time he'll have a puck on his stick.

Which is better for your child's development? You decide.

(1) Congratulations to the five Flames (Justin Latreille, Turner Allison, Jeremy Gabor, William McCusker and Thomas Diekmeyer) who skated in the Monday night hockey camp with the Atom and PeeWee kids. Several of the guys will be going again next week. For information call John or Peter.

(2) Hockey West Island will be holding spring break camps during the week of February 28 - March 4. These camps are a great way for kids to catch up on some of their basic skills and to have a little fun too. We'll post details on this site as soon as they become available.

(3) We are thinking about having a team breakfast after practice on January 22nd or the 29th. Details to follow.

(4) And finally: we are looking for a volunteer to be our next "Player of the week." If you would like to have have your "player profile" on the Flames Web-site please E-mail me a SMALL digital photo along with the following information:

Congratulations Flames for an excellent effort against the first place Jets. After a strong first period, we gave ground and took a 2-0 loss, but the guys put in a great show.

We're now off for a couple of weeks, but several of the guys are planning to attend the West Island Christmas Hockey Camp, which begins on Thursday December 23rd, at 13:00 at Dorval arena. Its a great way to stay in shape, and an excellent chance to hone your skills before the second half of the season starts. For information check out this link or call me at 631-0025. We hope to see you there.

For those who are going away, we wish you great Christmas and all the best in the New Year.
