Zach's First Ball Hockey Game

Today Zach started his Hockey Career.  He played his first Ball Hockey game ever.  First time he has ever played on a team.  
He did SO AWESOME!
He had so much fun and loved being out there with his team playing hockey.  So much better than playing in the Garage with Dad.
He is playing in the Sherwood Park Ball Hockey Leagues in the 4-6 year old Tykes division.  He is the second youngest player on his team.
We got there and met his coaches and then Zach got his Jersey.  He is #3!
Here are some pictures from Zach's first Ball Hockey game:

What they do each week is a 20 minute practice, a 30 minute game and a 10 minute wrap up.

 Big #3
 Practising their passing
 Passing with the team
 Stick handling around the net
 Shooting practice
 Focus

And the Game begins

  Zach lines up for his first ever shift and...

The team scores!

 He was so excited he ran...
 He ran and ran all the way down the rink to us
 This smile is priceless
 Time for a break on the bench
 On the bench with his teammates
 Water time
 Lining up for hist first Face-off ever
 He won this draw. Lost his second draw. 50/50.  Not to bad! hahaha
 Running hard
 I just loved that he had a smile on his face the whole time
 Playing some Defence like Daddy
 Heading back up the floor

Game over.  They won 3-0
