Our 2023 Ice Sharks Teams hit the ice Saturday April 1st for their first practices, and our 3 on 3 group had their first games.
This year we have 4 spring teams, all scheduled to play in 2 tournaments. The 2009 and 2011 teams are returning under coaches Warren Thomas, and Brad Hayter. Mark Stanley has put together a 2014 team, and Pat Downey is leading our 2015 group; both teams are excited about their first year of spring hockey.
3 on 3 is also back for a second season. I would like to thank Tim Meulensteen for pulling together 4 teams. Each team will have 7 ice times throughout the month of April. We received a lot of good feedback on last years 3 on 3, and this really helps to build a foundation for full teamsnext year.
Thanks to all of the coaches and their staff for leading this year's Ice Shark group. We are slowly bouncing back after COVID, and if we continue to add a Tyke team every year, we will eventually have our full slate of teams back.
I really think it is important to keep this spring hockey option available to Listowel and surrounding area. Anyone interested in helping lead the organization for the spring of 2024 please contact me.
