From October through the end of March every year, my life is practically consumed by the sport of hockey. Either watching it on television or traveling to see my kids play, it has been my life for the better part of the last sixteen years. When my son played, I had to shuttle between he and my daughter teams for practices, games and tournaments. Now that he is in college, I have felt like I have been on “Hockey Parent” vacation for the last several years!
Below you will see two pictures of my daughter playing hockey on her travel team (she is on the left in both pictures). Although checking is not allowed in women’s hockey, don’t let anyone tell you that these hockey players are not as aggressive as the boys. They fight just as hard for the puck, throw elbows and will scrap with their opponents if they have to.
