By age fourteen it was clear Sidney was well on his way to a great professional hockey career. Sidney and his family wanted him to play major junior hockey in his hometown but because of his young age the choice was made to play at a high school in the United States.

He also led his team to a national title (sidneycrosbyfans).

I unfortunately only get to see him part-time as he lives with my father and stepmother. I am an avid hockey fan and started playing ice hockey at age 4. Hockey has provided me with some of my favorite memories, such as teaching a 4 year old girl how to skate and winning the Southern Youth Travel Hockey League Championship. Being kind and generous are traits that I have always tried to exhibit. I would be honored to be selected as the Halls Middle School Student of the Year.
Coming from Canada everybody plays hockey. Its almost as if as soon as you learn to walk you learn how to skate. Whether it is at the recreation centre or at the shinny rink around the corner everyone plays. Eventually I abandoned hockey to play basketball which I have done so for the last twelve years of my life and hopefully a few more years into the future. It happened watching it on television seeing all the great players such as Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon and Larry Bird.

The foundation for my understanding of my career choices can be traced as far back as my childhood, important life events, and my current interests along with hobbies.

Growing up as a child, I really wanted to be a professional ice hockey player, but as the years flew by that dream and reality started to fade away.

I started my first job working at an ice rink at the age of sixteen.
We had kindergarten to grade 8, so imagine the entire school in one gym.” Said Calgary Flames head coach Bob Hartley. Schools across Canada were so excited about the game they cancelled classes just to watch the games. Kids watched the games intently and became in love with the game of hockey.

He used his determination, love of the game, and natural leadership to impact hockey for the better. Steve Gregory Yzerman was born on May 9, 1965 in British Columbia. In Canada he grew up, but he did not pick up the game of hockey until he was seven years old. He would play on the ponds by his house during the winter.

When most people hear the word hockey, they think about skating, ice, and a puck. What most people do not think about is running, the blistering heat, and a small orange ball, however, I do.

Some of those memories are, playing hockey at Bill’s Golfland, U.S.A. Ball Hockey Tryouts, and playing at Penn Hills Dek Hockey.
On Saturday afternoons, Button spent hours skating at a nearby skating rink. In the summer of 1942, Button’s father sent him to train with ice-dancing coach, Joe Carroll, in New York. Soon after, Carroll recommended that Button go train with Switzerland-born skier and skating coach, Gustave Lussi. Button practiced an average of seven hours every day just perfecting different routines. All of Dick’s hard work and time spent training shortly paid off.
