Family Spirit on the Midget Team

From the end of September to the beginning of December, the maple leaf has changed colors – a radiant yellow. The Northwood Midget boys hockey is no exception, they have changed to more than just a team in a positive and inspiring way.

After try-outs, teams formed. Some players were happy with the results, some were not. The stream of life sometimes does not flow in people’s desired direction.

“Don’t worry boys, there’s only room for improvement from now on”, one of the Midget Huskies once jokingly said during their first practice.

“Why me?” Players had all kinds of questions and doubts about their ability. So, the story began…

“Don’t worry boys, there’s only room for improvement from now on”, one of the Midget Huskies once jokingly said during their first practice. Every individual understood the task at hand. The only way to achieve it was through hard-work and perseverance.

The first step is the hardest. A setback certainly puts things into perspective – it made us work harder. This transitional stage soon became a comfortable routine.

Day by day, the Midget Team grew tenacious. They experienced victory and failure, shared stories and built bonds. The Midget Team’s motto soon evolved into the idea that no one should be told he or she can’t do something. Through practices and games, their efforts on and off the ice bonded them by a thick rope.

The team has become a united family. The hockey season is reaching its halfway mark. The Midget players have experienced both failure and victory. No matter where the path leads to, they are prepared for the impending challenges as the journey goes on.
