Greetings Coastal Stars Families and Players,
The season is upon us and we are so excited to have you all involved. The season was officially started with our first annual Puck Drop in mid August but with skills starting tomorrow and practice this week...Now it really feels like hockey season!!
Some of you have already started. Our Midget A team (first year for us) beat Hingham 4-1 in their season opener.
Our goal is for every player to improve and learn to enjoy the game of ice hockey. Keep in mind, every single person involved in your players development is a volunteer. This year looks to be one of the best for the Coastal Stars. Not because we think every team is going to win it all but because we feel that we have the most enthusiastic and knowledgable coaching staff we have ever assembled. Our Board of Directors has worked tirelessly over the spring and summer to make sure that everything is in place for your player to have the best hockey experience, ever.
Beyond the Board and coaches, there are still opportunities and needs to get involved. Every team needs a PR rep. Someone that can write up a quick game summary and send it along to our website. We in turn will forward it along to the local papers in Marshfield and Cohasset. Remember when you were a kid and your name made it in the paper? It was a parent like you that made that happen. If you want to be that person, let your coach know.
Pictures are also needed for both our Website/Facebook page and also the Mariner. Keep in mind camera phones are great for Facebook, but we need high resolution camera pictures for the newspaper. Don't be afraid to bring a camera to a game and snap some action photos.
Thank you all again for being part of the Coastal Stars. We look forward to a great season and if there is anything that we can do along the way, please let us know.
