" Growing up outside Cornwall I can attest to how important hockey is to our area and how it plays a major role in bringing our community together. As the sport of hockey is continuously evolving, I truly believe our hockey players need to be provided with the most cutting edge training tools to give them every opportunity to develop their skills and ultimately succeed in hockey.
My biggest inspiration in the game wasn't the people who were on my side; it was the people who said I couldn't do it. I became intent on proving them wrong through hard work. At Own The Ice we pride ourselves on hard work and the belief that, with enough practice and the right coaching, everyone who steps through our doors has a chance to make it".
