My granddaughter Darcy is the coach of an elite midget hockey team in Guelph. This weekend her team won the gold in a tournament representing her large area. It is the Lower Lakes division and it is an excellent division for future elite women hockey players. Darcy has a five man crew in her coaching team and she is the boss. Next year she is going to be the coach for the Guelph Midget double A team. This was a great achievement and we are all very proud of her.
Darcy was a very good player but while she was at university she mad a choice for coaching. She now is in teachers college for a two year post grad degree and this coaching is her entertainment and passion. Theresa and I love to see her coach and the manner in which she get every ounce of energy from her team.
Next week Darcy takes her team to the Provincials and we will be there to cheer her on. Women's hockey has come a long way and the crowd today at the rink let everyone know that Ladies hockey is here to stay.
