Promoting Good Sportsmanship Off the Ice #AllConnected

Promoting Good Sportsmanship Off the Ice #AllConnected

How important is it to you that good sportsmanship extends off the ice? Have you seen examples where children or parents say things online that they would never say in person? And how has this impacted you or the ones you care about? It’s still shocking to me that over 40% of Canadian kids are cyberbullied every month. We have all seen examples of it, and many of us have seen the impact. Cyberbullying can impact anyone. Watch Jordan Eberle’s Story, where Jordan shares his experience with cyberbullying as a professional athlete and...

#AllConnected through Good Sportsmanship Online and At the Rink

#AllConnected through Good Sportsmanship Online and At the Rink

As you all know I’m not just a Hockey Mom, I’m a hockey fan as well. Back in 2010 when the Canadian Hockey Moms community was developed, a main goal was to promote good sportsmanship and positive experiences for players and families both on and off the ice. I knew first hand how the whole hockey experience could be less than positive, and I felt that there should be a venue to discuss the positives, and the trials and tribulations amongst Hockey Moms. Many don’t know that Canadian Hockey Moms was also developed so that I personally could...

New RBC/Petro Canada Program Saves Hockey Families Money on Gas

As Hockey Moms, it can feel that we spend half our lives on the road. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all worth it, and those car rides with our kids provide some of our most precious memories. But the number one comment I get from people without children in hockey is, “Wow, that’s a lot of driving”. Yes. It is. And that’s why I’m so excited to share with you an innovative new program being launched by RBC and Petro-Canada that could save Hockey Families, big time. Starting on October 31, 2017, Canadians will be able to save 3¢ per litre on fuel...

Feel better with Vasayo and Giveaway for Hockey Moms

It’s time for another giveaway, Hockey Moms, and this time it’s for another product I’ve tried and loved. Fellow Hockey Mom, Karrie Kirton, introduced me to Vasayo, a company that produces products made for those with busy lifestyles (is that you?). I tried Sleep, and Energy. I found Sleep to be an interesting product, because I didn’t find it made me groggy, but I did find when I awoke in the morning I felt exceptionally well rested, like my sleep had been deep and uninterrupted. Energy gave me a slight boost in the afternoon when my energy...

Be Safe this Hockey Season with Oneiric Base Layer and Aegis Neck Guard – Giveaway

With August approaching it’s time for many of us to get our kids suited up in protective hockey gear that both fits and keeps our kids safe. As you may know I’m a big fan of Oneiric Hockey, creating easy to use base layers that also save time in the dressing room (did you catch that busy mom? Less time spent bent over in the hot dressing room searching your child’s bag for pieces of equipment that are probably in the bag of the kid who sat beside them at the last practice.) Oneiric Hockey is giving away their amazing base...

Stick Handling the Financial Costs of Hockey with World Champion turned Financial Advisor, Brent Tully

Along with the end of a hockey season comes a need to “clean house” so to speak and get things in order. This is especially true this year as I personally make a transition which includes purchasing a home on my own for myself and my three children for the first time, and moving into it (if you can avoid it, don’t to this the week before the end of school). When I ask you what you worry about most in a hockey season (and I ask every year), along with “my child having fun” and “how to fit it all in”, the most common response is “how to...

When the Hockey is Over…

A friend recently posted this on Facebook. It touched me, and I asked if I could share it with you. Thank you Leslie McCoy-Bronson. It’s been a pleasure to watch your children play. 😉 —————— As I sit here thinking sadly this could be my last season as a hockey mom, I think back on all the years and the memories. My family has been so blessed, hockey has introduced us to so many great people and given us so many wonderful memories. Over the years my kids have played on different teams and we have met...
