To Our Junior Players and Parents
25 sep 2020 0 kommentarer
In a very challenging year so far, it has been great to see our young players back on the ice, providing some sense of normalcy as their respective season’s begin. It’s very exciting to see the gains our young men have made this summer, and we already see these increases on display as the games start up.
As leaders in our organisation, we truly believe that our ability to win an SM-Guld at the SHL level will greatly depend on our success in developing our elite young athletes through our Junior program.
Just as we continue to do with our A-team, our goal has been to raise the standard of excellence in our Junior program. With these increased expectations come increased demands, both for our coaching staff and our players.
While our coaches have worked hard to set this higher new standard, our players have done a tremendous job of “buying into” these lofty goals we have set for ourselves. As with any change, there will need to be honest evaluation and re-adjustments made along the way.
We just wanted to let you all know that we value the feedback we have gotten as we engage the players in the discussion. We assure you that your feedback, and that of your son’s, has been heard and taken into consideration.
Finally, we look forward to the day all of us can return to Catena arena to see our young men compete at their highest level yet. Thanks very much for your trust, support, and continued confidence.
