Maulers families volunteered at Feed My Starving Children and packed 101,600 meals for food insecure/malnourished children in Haiti - a great experience for the kids and parents alike. Another reminder that the blown offsides call isn't really that big a deal in the scheme of things!!
Thanks to Coach John for putting it together and to all who volunteered their time - another proud day to be a Mauler.
USA Hockey unveiled a new Heads Up, Don’t Duck instructional video featuring Olympians Jenny Potter and Ryan Suter.
The Heads Up, Don’t Duck safety initiative dates back to 1996 and is aimed at reducing spinal cord and other debilitating injuries.
“Dr. Ashare, the current chair of our safety and protective committee, helped launch this important program nearly two decades ago,” said Dr. Michael Stuart, chief medical officer of USA Hockey. “The basic premise of the program has not changed, however, we created this updated video piece to ensure that every player and coach understands the importance of keeping your head up.”
“We’ve been out in front on safety issues over the course of our history,” said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. “Heads Up, Don’t Duck has long been one of our signature safety programs and is part of our broad SafeSport program that addresses both on and off-ice safety of our participants.”
AHAI strongly encourages all parents and coaches at all levels of hockey to have their players watch this HEADS UP – DON’T DUCK VIDEO at least twice every season to help reduce the risk of a catastrophic injury.
