The minor hockey season is over for another year, and what a year it was for our local association.
Teams from the Cowichan Lake area participated in many out of town tournaments with many of those teams bringing home team medals and individual awards. While the purpose of minor hockey remains having fun, learning the basics and the comradeship that is a team sport, it is nice to see a smaller association like Lake Cowichan can compete with the larger districts in the league. Lake Cowichan and District Minor Hockey handed out their awards on Sunday afternoon in a packed Centennial Hall where family and friends were on hand to share in the accomplishments of this years teams, players, coaches and managers. It was obvious that we have a great bunch of dedicated young hockey players who are having a lot of fun while learning the game and adults who are committed to providing the necessary leadership that is required to provide an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Congratulation to everyone involved with the local Minor Hockey association, you are providing lasting memories to kids who are having a great time playing the game they love.
