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

·         Hockey Canada lists Lacrosse first among its top 6 sports and activities to develop players. 

·         The Hockey Canada Long Term Player Development Plan identifies Hockey as a “late specialization sport” and recommends participating in a variety of sports before specializing between the ages of 12 and 15. 

·         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.”
