Shout out to the coaches that make 13 year olds travel 45 mins for a 1 hour game and don’t give them 1 second of playing time. You’re doing a great job. Keep it up.

Alphonso Davies played in Free Footie. Hockey is missing the boat on top athletes by making it not accessible. The 'next Gretzky' will probably never play hockey because he can't afford it.

Basketball clubs in Ottawa go to great lengths to ensure that financial barriers are removed. Have heard of families being told 'maybe hockey isn't for you' if they don't have $3k to shell out. Check out this great program in Edmonton -
