It is so hard to believe that the end of our seventh season is here already! We've been so packed with activities in addition to practices and games, that I feel like we need a few more months of skating in order to slow down and smell the roses!
Since the first week in October, Storm players have had a practice each Sunday, Played home and away games with the Jumbo's, Chasers, Raptors & Dare Devils, Traveled to New Jersey and Maryland for Tournaments, and still have one to go in a few weeks, Played on the ice at Webster Bank Arena/Harbor Yard and attended a Sound Tiger's game, Were Guests of the New Canaan Winter Club for a wonderful Outdoor Skate, Starred in a video by Gotta Love CT Hockey, which was phenomenal, Took part in a clinic held for them by the Bridgeport Police, and I'm quite sure I have forgotten a few things!
Wow, I think we need a rest! Tomorrow is our last practice for the season and our end of season celebration. We are all so very proud of our Storm Hockey Players. They have all worked so very hard again this season and grown in so many wonderful and miraculous ways. Our Athletes made many new friends this season, learned a load of new skills, both social and hockey and seem to grow before our eyes every week!
We are blessed to have the Athletes we do. Blessed to have the Volunteer Coaches, Assistants, Mentors and Parents we do. It's what makes Storm work so beautifully year after year.
I can honestly say, I have never been so happy and proud to be involved with an organization such as Storm Special Hockey in my life. It is both a Blessing and a Labor of Love to be involved with all of you, and I Thank you All.
Have a Wonderful Party! See you in October! GO STORM!
For the second year, the Harden brothers have supported Southern Ct Storm Special Hockey Team as the beneficiary of proceeds from the H13, Holmes Harden Memorial Golf Tourney that was held on Thursday, September 26th, at the New Canaan Country Club.
The Tournament, in honor of the Harden boy's father, is a lasting tribute to a man who loved family and hockey. Boyd Harden says his father would be very proud that the proceeds of this tournament goes to such a worthy cause.
An all volunteer non-profit organization, Storm Special Hockey is a successful therapeutic program for young athletes with a developmental disability. Storm ice rental costs alone run approximately $20,000 per season and 100% of all donations received go towards the program. Storm teaches life & social skills to children with a host of developmental disabilities, through the game of Ice Hockey.
Our heartfelt Thank You, to the Harden Family and those who participated in the Tournament, for their continued support of Southern CT Storm Special Hockey.
