The Spooner Area Youth Hockey Association's season is well underway. This year we are focusing on the Hockey Mom's and Dad's that make our programs run smoothly. Read on to get a glimpse of being a hockey parent.

Hockey Mom - Leslie Gudmunsen

SAYHA: Who are you and who is your player?

LG: My players are Korbin who is a squirt and Boden who is in Learn to Skate.

SAYHA: What is your best memory of your kid/kids playing hockey? 

LG: My favorite memory is probably when Korbin got his first goal in Barron at a Mite Jamboree a few years ago. I happened to be videoing and actually got it on video!

SAYHA: What is the best advice you can give another hockey parent? 

LG: Be Flexible! Schedules change quickly.

SAYHA: What is a must have item in your rink bag? 

LG: Hat and gloves! You never know just how cold a rink is going to be.

SAYHA: How do you manage that hockey smell? 

LG: Air it out! Get it out of the car and bag as soon as you can! Also, frequently wash what you can.

SAYHA: What time management advice can you share with us? 

LG: Always plan ahead and be earlier than suggested!

Hockey Dads

The community outdoor rink located at City Park in Spooner is the focus of many a hockey dad's winters. They clean snow off of the ice before they run the zamboni and they themselves flood the rink and paint the lines. Thank you Hockey Dads!

Pond Hockey

Join SAYHA at Jack Frost Fest at the Outdoor Rink at City Park on February 8th, 2020. There will be a Pond Hockey Tournament for Youth from 9am - 12pm and an adult tournament starting at 2pm. The warming house and concessions will be open all day. Come and enjoy some outdoor hockey.
