“My kids and I started playing hockey almost 6 years ago...not only have we met some wonderful people, we formed some of the best friendships along the way, with other players, parents and your staff. I cannot express to you how fortunate we are to have those relationships, which would not be possible if Skatetown wasn’t around. Second, my health...I’m in such better physical shape than 6 years ago and I often say, “hockey saved my life” — while figuratively speaking, I am in the best health I have been in for 20+ years. The physical and mental outlet hockey provides is amazing and I will be forever grateful for what Skatetown provided.
Lastly, the benefit for my kids...the confidence and the maturity hockey has provided my younger son with Thunder and for my older son, his first job as a Skatetown referee was on his radar the past couple years...we are very proud of both, again, not possible without Skatetown.
We will be relocating out-of-state and the hardest part will be finding a rink that will provide the same benefits as Skatetown......any rink we find has big shoes to fill...that much I can tell you.”
