Benefits of Playing Hockey

Fitness, strength, flexibility, agility and coordination are all impacted and improved in a healthy manner. However, equally important are the life skills that hockey players develop that benefit them and carry over into school, home and eventually the work place. Players learn to work as a team towards common goals, they develop strong communication and listening skills, they learn to be supportive, cooperative and respectful. Hockey players also build self-confidence and self-esteem that help them in all areas of their lives.
