Coach Dave Cox shared, “As their coach for the last three years, it has been truly amazing to see each kid grow and develop into strong hockey players. I have been truly lucky to have such a great group of kids who want the best for their teammates. And we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish any of this without one the greatest group of parents. They are always extremely supportive of our entire program and coaching staff.”
Eleven players from the team will be moving on to the high school team next year.
