December Magic

December 6, 2017

It's always amazing how quickly a season can go by! It's hard to believe it is already December, and yet here we are. As focus off the ice starts turning to the upcoming Christmas break, the action on the ice has been fast and furious! As the season's story continues to unfold, it will be fun to cheer on our TBird family.

Of special note, we are so proud of the 19 Thunderbirds who will be representing all of us in the upcoming Midget C Scholarship tournament. This is a tremendous achievement to be selected, and all the players will have the opportunity to win scholarships based on their overall play and sportsmanship they display during the games.

Our Midget A team is currently in the midst of a tremendous season (placement and league games) and is incredibly exciting to watch! If you have some time and want to see our most senior players hit the ice, check out the upcoming schedule and head out to cheer them - or any of our teams - on. It's always a boost of energy to have friends and family in the stands, and a great way to see the level of play.

The next few weeks will be full of ice times, Thunderball preparation, and a lot of fun off the ice with your loved ones. We hope you find a little bit of time to enjoy the many good moments in this magical month of the year.
