    The new year has just kicked in and for hockey, it has checked in with a step in the right direction, small as it may seem, it is a bold and much needed initiative.Its time to shed off the bad habit of anybody who has ever held a hockey stick claiming to be able to handle the technical side of the game.This is where we started going wrong, and the product is players with a lot of skill but less technical know how in the game of hockey. skill must compliment the technical bit of the game and vice versa, neither must not be allowed to work in isolation.Any body who loves this game and want to take it to the next level must embrace this initiative and be there from the 6th to the 8th of Jan at city park and help make a difference.For those who will take up the challenge, use the knowledge acquired to better your teams, let it not be personal information.change must start with you.
