Okanagan Hockey’s top 10 Christmas Gifts for your young hockey player
Hi folks, Dixon Ward here. Well, it’s that time of year again. The Christmas season is upon us and I figured it would be fun to share with you our favorite Christmas gifts for young hockey players. I thought about what direction I wanted to go with this and I decided to stay away from the obvious choices of equipment related gifts such as skates and sticks. Instead, I have compiled a list of non-traditional ideas that you may find interesting, and more importantly, things parents can share with their kids. Most are easily affordable, with a couple higher priced items.
Whatever you may choose for your young player, the greatest gift that we can all give as parents is our time and attention. No matter how young or old your player is, spending time together enjoying your passion for the game is priceless. Okanagan Hockey sincerely hopes you all have an amazing Holiday Season and stay tuned for World Junior Blog right after Christmas.
I can confidently say the Okanagan Hockey Academy had an impact on me as a hockey player but more importantly as a person. OHA taught me to bring my best self in all aspects of life including as a student, player and community member. I learned many life skills during my time at OHA that I will take with me much longer than my playing career and that is the greatest gift the staff, coaches, billets and community gave to me. I strongly believe I am a more well-rounded individual because of my time at OHA. I hope any young hockey player with drive, determination and a passion to become a better player and person is able to have the chance to attend somewhere so amazing. For me OHA gave me the best balance of academics, athletics, family and social life. I am extremely grateful for my time at Okanagan Hockey Academy.
