When the Hockey is Over…

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...

Oneiric Giveaway! Youth or Adult Sizes Now Available!

Oneiric Giveaway! Youth or Adult Sizes Now Available!

Back in September 2016, I talked about a new product that both keeps things simple and keeps players safe! Oneiric is a base layer with insert-able shin pads and built in ankle protection. Though different than traditional shin pads with Velcro, it’s high quality, durable, and makes getting dressed for hockey just that much easier. I’m a big fan of the Oneiric for both for ease of use and functionality. It really is a great product. The Oneiric is also now available in adult sizes! Once again, I am pleased to announce the Oneiric Giveaway....

AEGIS Impact Protection Giveaway ~ For Hockey Moms!

When our children play hockey, we want them to be safe. In, fact, that’s a priority for most Hockey Moms. I love Aegis Impact Protection’s approach to do just that, protect our children with their innovative technology. Aegis Impact Protection recognized that while protecting against lacerations, most neck guards were entirely ineffective at dissipating impacts. That meant that a puck to the throat could pose a serious threat, or even death (scary, but it’s happened!). Current neck protectors are also typically uncomfortable,...

Better Health for Hockey Moms…..it’s all in the SEEDS: Giveaway!

Hockey Moms, I’m going to tell you about something that after only three weeks is changing my life. After watching the video above, I can totally relate to Colleen. About 95% of Hockey Moms will agree that we are not fantastic at looking after ourselves. Grueling schedules of work, family, and running multiple children to multiple rinks can mean that our health becomes the very last priority. I hate to admit that this has been the case in my own life for the last few years. Add to this a back injury that has been impacting me for about five...

Rocket Sport Dryer Giveaway – Best Invention for Hockey Moms!

Rocket Sport Dryer Giveaway – Best Invention for Hockey Moms!

It’s tournament season. That means lots of hockey, and lots of wet, stinky equipment. For those of us who drag the equipment to the hotel room to dry between games or overnight (if the hotel allows it), you know that the room can get both crowded, and smelly, in quite a short time. To top it all off, laying that equipment on the hotel floor could mean absorbing bacteria from the dirty floors onto the gear. (Gross!) That’s why I was super excited to try the Rocket Sport Dryer – UV on the road at our first overnight tournament of the...

Oneiric and Aegis #EndTheWorry Giveaway for Hockey Moms

I’m all for keeping things simple, especially in the sweltering heat of a dressing room with 15 players and 15 parents (don’t’ forget the strollers, extra siblings, and grandparents). And, I want my kids’ gear to be super safe. A while ago, I talked about Oneiric, a base layer with insert-able shin pads and built in ankle protection. Though different than traditional shin pads with Velcro, it’s high quality, and quite frankly, I wish it was around when my own children were young and learning to get dressed in the dressing room. I’m a big fan...

Teags & Ry Hockey Stick Duffle Bag for Hockey Moms: Giveaway!

I have lovingly been referred to as “The Bag Lady” at the rink. I always have at least one bag, usually more, to carry blankets, snacks, toys, manager stuff including rosters, pens,  and an envelope for collecting money. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I learned about an ACTUAL hockey bag for Hockey Moms. Like, made for me. With hockey sticks on it, and a little rink pattern inside and everything.  And then…I got to TRY one! This bag is meant for me. And probably you. Soft yet decidedly sturdy (this is good quality stuff) the duffle...

End the Dressing Room Chaos!

End the Dressing Room Chaos!

I wish this newest invention would have been around when my children were younger. Would you agree that there are few things more chaotic than initiation/tyke dressing rooms? Fifteen to thirty (if you are sharing ice) little players, plus parents, and siblings, sometimes even a stroller or two, and all the hockey gear in one small space. Add in the excitement, and it can be bedlam. Lost equipment. Arguing with your child to put on their own. A fight breaking out in the corner. A child struggling with the straps on their shin pads. Showing up...
