At the completion of this last session, they had a special Demonstration Showcase for the players to show friends and family what they learned. This was one of those moments, as a parent, that I was filled with so much joy and pride for my son. He was the youngest, by far, and while he might have not been able to do the majority of the drills the other players did he never gave up and skated and played with such dedication. It was awesome! The head coach Al, even announced him and got the crowd cheering him on (you can sort of hear on the video). He joked he was almost like the little star of the show. When he asked Sawyer what he loves most about hockey, he responded, "I like shooting the puck into the goal." Love it!
