We are trying to do a few things to get the kids to know one another, like meeting early for pratice. We are also going to get a team practice every couple of weeks.
During the last twenty years or so, at the entry levels up to Atom you can get the youngsters to interact at tournaments and the local rinks by selling inexpensive hockey cards or stickers, under $2.00 a pack.

The youngsters natural curiosity takes over and they start trading, talking etc.

Run by the association or team it also becomes a nice fundraiser over the course of a season.
