What’s So Great About Campion’s Learn-to-Play Hockey Program?

Tonight, I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve… Tomorrow morning, I start my 6th season at the Dick Dodds Hockey Academy. I can hardly wait!

What’s so great about the adult Learn-to-Play Hockey program at Campion Rink, anyway? Just ask Rick Sayles, one of our group’s earliest skaters:

CCM: How long have you been with the Learn-to-Play program at Campion Rink?

Rick: “I hadn’t skated before the DDHA which I started when we moved to Hanover about 7 years ago (gosh how time flies)!”

CCM: What do you love about the Campion Learn-to-Play program with Coach Dodds?

Rick: “Coach Dodds brings his passion for the game of hockey and his enthusiasm for coaching to each and every class. When you mix that with the great game of hockey, you have a winning combo – great fun and a great workout!”

CCM: What would you say to someone considering starting hockey later in life?

Rick: “As Dick has said – just do it! The learning curve is steep which is wonderful. This means you get much better very quickly. How many other things can you get better at later in life that are this much fun?”

You don’t have to be crazy to play hockey (but it helps!)…
