Jordyn Stock - Girl Power

"I am a girl who just loves hockey. I play on a high school team 30 minutes away from my house and a girls team 4 hours away. I want to do my best in everything and complete my dreams of going to college on a hockey and academic scholarship. I am grateful for my family's sacrifice and time. And all of my past and present coaches who have help me, supported me, and for helping me in pursuit of my dreams. I play for God, family, and my coaches. When I get bored at my house I go practice my skills. I shoot the puck and stick handle. In weight lifting at school we make our own workouts and I made mine all targeted towards hockey. I am driven by my love of hockey and big goals in life."

Nathan Steele - AAA Teen

"I‘ve played hockey for 7 years now and still crave ice time. Hockey has been a great outlet for me when my twin sister was sick. I could go in the backyard and shoot pucks to get out the stress. Getting on the ice forced me to forget about my sister's health and concentrate on the puck and my teammates. Now that she has passed away, I find the need to work hard, play hard and always give 110% very important. Playing on a u15 AAA team this year has been awesome. I love the challenge of the faster pace game, teammates who can pass and receive pucks and the desire to play harder and get better. My parents must drive me an hour from home just to practice. They make sure I get to all practices and games. I truly love my family for their support and sacrifices made for me to keep playing. And I hope my twin sister is watching from heaven cheering for me and she knew I loved her even though we were 12 when she died."

Steve Cotte - Hockey Coach

"At 47 years old and still playing my drive to get better has been enhanced by my 10u and 8u sons who are both pushing themselves to be better every time they take the ice. As the head coach of the South Shore Kings 09 tier 1 team I have been blessed with young athletes striving to achieve something they have never experienced. The will to win at such an early age is coupled with knowing they are part of something bigger than just being themselves. They love their teammates and step on the ice as a team every weekend. We log many miles between rinks and the early morning grind has become routine and exciting whenever I watch my sons and players reach the success they have been striving for. Their energy and excitement has pushed me to be a better player, a better coach, and a better parent. These boys think they are learning how to play hockey from me, honestly, I have probably learned more from them than I can ever offer back."

Seth Grundmeier - Hockey Dad

"I did not grow up with hockey, or even ice skates, but since I went to my first game at 20 years old I've been hooked. I grew up in an area where basketball and football were the only things that mattered, except I was never good enough and there's was never a coach that believed in me. I have a passion to show my kids that hockey is about fun and continual development. No matter how gifted you are, if you work hard and have fun, hockey is a lifelong passion. I have been skating for 10 years, and have my level 1 endorsement from USA hockey, and help coach our LTP/ LTS program. Hockey is the only sport that encourages people at any level to get in the game and just improve and have fun. Whether you played as a child or not. Hockey is the greatest sport on earth, and I fell in love with it. I have 3 of my 4 boys on the ice with me and next year I'll have the fourth and my daughter as well. It's a family sport, it takes our whole family to the rink every week. It's a bond I never had as a kid, and I believe our kids will be shaped by the bond we have through hockey. "
