Tips to Help Hockey Moms Stay Organized this Season

It’s the start of another busy hockey season, and many Hockey Moms can feel both the excitement and the panic, anticipating the feat of juggling it will take to hold it all together through another winter season. Yes, we as Hockey Moms are a busy breed, somehow managing to fit it all in (or not) with the added pressure of making it on time (well…ahead of time) to the rink countless times a week with all necessary equipment in each player’s hockey bag. I asked you earlier how you prepare and stay organized for the season, and you all...

Hockey Moms Describe “Hockey” in One Word

How do you describe hockey? Yesterday I asked you to describe hockey in just one word. Within a couple of hours over 100 of you had participated with the word that sums up hockey for you and your family. The results, though maybe not surprising, are telling and are captured in the Wordle below. Those words mentioned most often are found in larger print. So, how do you define hockey? Comments or questions? Email us at contactus@canadianhockeymoms.ca or leave a message on our Facebook...

Well, Hockey Moms, I have a new giveaway to offer you that I think you will appreciate, because it is awesome. Though it’s not necessarily hockey related, in some ways it is, because in several conversations with hockey moms at the rinks we have talked about how much you care (or not) what you look like when you get there. I have heard many times that “I only wear mascara”. Well, for those of you who ONLY wear mascara, or who wear mascara plus whatever else…do I have the BEST MASCARA EVER FOR YOU!!!

The Book “Hockey Mom” is a Great Read for Hockey Moms!

Any book with the title “Hockey Mom” of course grabs my attention. I have spent the last four years talking all things hockey mom on this website and with thousands of moms across Canada, and the world. So when I met Jane Lushington Daly and learned that she had four sons, all of whom had played hockey, and on top of that, she had written a book called “Hockey Mom”, of course I was intrigued. I curled up with “Hockey Mom” on a rare free Saturday afternoon once my own kids were done with playoffs. From the...

Should parents know better? Or is hockey becoming a “soft sport”?

Should parents know better? Or is hockey becoming a “soft sport”?

The debate about aggression in hockey sparks some ongoing debates about what is just part of the game, and what pushes things too far. Should fighting be allowed? Should we be of the mentality “what happens on the ice stays on the ice”, sometimes meaning acts of aggression or violence that would be punishable by law off the ice are allowed on the ice all in the name of hockey? Recently Josh Maguire of the Peterborough Petes, an Ontario Hockey League junior team, received a five game suspension for fighting (with an opponent who did...

Happy 4 Year Anniversary Canadian Hockey Moms!

Happy Anniversary Canadian Hockey Moms! Can you believe that it was exactly four years ago today that we launched our first webpage, then called “Hockey Mom in Canada” along with our Facebook page and Twitter. It seemed timely to launch in February 2010 because it was during the Vancouver Winter Olympics, just before we went for Gold in the men’s game. We launched the page expecting that it could become big eventually. In the first week we had 120 members. In the first year, 1,200. And 4 years later, we have over 17,000 fans...
