Congrats HappyHab! When you say he made the 7 year old select team, are you meaning he made a spring team or a winter team?
CanadaBacon, you have to remember that extended spring hockey in Manitoba for 7 year olds is NOT all summer! It ends in June and is NOT every weekend etc. There is still lots of opportunities for kids to play other sports.
I do however agree that the its a good idea for the kids to come back to the rink hungry for the start of the winter hockey season as it is a long one. At a young age I will not let my son play "all summer long" as I feel it will do him good to take a break and enjoy other sports but that doesnt stop him from practicing in the basement!
Once again, congrats HappyHab. You sound like a great supportive hockey dad that is truly interested and supportive of your childs play! That makes for one heck of a fun time watching him! He will only get better with support like that!
