Will started playing the Tri-City Inline Hockey league in the fall season of 2005. Jake would follow suit the following season so the entire family has become Hockey buffs and Casey and I are proud parent of two "Rink Rats". The quality family time that hockey provides has been a real blessing to the family. Not to mention that is really fast paced and cool to watch as a spectator.

Summer 2006 Season
The summer season is a much for relaxed season as they know families are going to take vacations and miss games. So instead of having seat team, players are rotated and switched around throughout the season to both strengthen their play and and keep the games highly competitive.

Most teams do not have full-time goalies in this age bracket so everyone has to take a turn sometime during the season at being goalie. Today was Will's turn and he did an excellent job.

Summer League Championship Game, August 26th 2006
Will's game play really stepped up throughout the summer, and for the fall season, he was pushed up to the next higher age bracket (Pee-Wees, 12-14 year old) a full year early. Unfortunately they play on Friday nights making getting good shot really hard. Also I became an assistant coach for Will's team.
Will did exceptional well playing with the much bigger boys and score a goal during his first game. Throughout the year his play continued to improve. During the playoffs his team came pulled off an under dog win to make it to the championship round. They would go onto to win the championship. Will scored goals in both of those games.
