If you listen to the NHL players, their fondest memories of growing up playing hockey is playing pond hockey.
We have 2 boys who play hockey and LOVE playing on the pond. The wonderful thing about pond hockey is that there are no rules, no refs, no coaches … just putting on the skates, grabbing a stick, and throwing a helmet on. Chasing the puck end to end, side to side, having a few breaks to sip on some hot cocoa, and going back at it.
My husband made some pond hockey goal nets and the boys painted them with the colors of their choice.
These boys played pond hockey in the most authentic setting … it was New Years Day, the snow was falling, and they played for over 3 hours without much of a break. They just kept going and going not wanting to stop until it started to get dusk. Creating these memories for these boys doing something that they love is perfect. They will never forget playing with their brother and dad on the snow covered, ice frozen pond. These are the moments that count.
