YFCHL Christmas Banquet 2018

Every year around Christmas time, we like to bless our kids with a special night. Instead of just showing up and playing hockey, as we normally do, we have a banquet for them. This is a night in which some of the kids wear some more formal clothing and get their pictures taken. On top of that, the extremely lovely ladies who bring snack every week go above and beyond to and make these kids a fantastic turkey meal with all the fixings, and they absolutely knock it out of the park!! After we are stuffed with turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing. We select the Allstar teams for the Junior and Senior league. This is our way of rewarding those players who show up consistently and play with passion and dedication. We even have our two captains from the Senior teams select and coach the Allstars from the Junior league. Teaching these kids leadership and ownership skills that will hopefully benefit them for years to come! This is always one of the kids highlights in our year as they get a little extra special treatment that they may not get as often outside of this program. It is always a joy to be able to put in a little extra effort to make sure these kids feel honoured and blessed by what we are doing.
