If you’re serious about Hockey, you should play Lacrosse, too!

·         To quote  Corey McNabb, Senior Manager of Player Development at Hockey Canada, “The ability to learn agility, balance, and coordination that comes from playing a variety of sports, builds a solid foundation for athletic success, physical fitness and more importantly, staying active for life.”
