A Calgary resident is not alient to ball hockey, and with the spurt in hockey leagues all across Canada, chances are that you may find yourself playing for your passions across one of these leagues. The good thing about such hockey leagues is that they allow you to play in coed teams or restrict yourself to Men or Women leagues only. Not that it matters much because if you are fit, you can play ball hockey better than others.
After my first stint in one of the local Calgary Ball Hockey leagues, I must say that I enjoy the sport and appreciate the challenge it brings to you. One must acknowledge the fact that ball hockey leagues are a good way to participate in team sports, build team rapport, and work towards your fitness like nothing else. With all these positives, and a closely knit team there was every reason for us to do well in the campaign. And because of all this, I am already paid up for my next season with my league.
Looking back at the sport that has become so popular these days, I can say that there have been many contributing factors that have led to the increase in families and friends taking over the ball hockey.
So, you could play street hockey or play in one of the better looking and organized ball hockey leagues in Calgary. Getting the hockey stick is easy because as a professional you know that the specifications of the hockey are standard. However, if you are a junior or an elder then you can go in for a hockey stick that will have a different length. Junior hockeys are available between length of 46-53 inches, and on a similar basis you can get a custom size if you are tall. Further, you could play in the league as an amateur, intermediate or professional hockey player. So, you have every reason to believe that you are playing with a person of commensurate skills.
And the icing on the cake is that if your team goes on to win the league title for the year, you get to win the trophy and recognition. I am sure that is bloats your esteem by a few strokes and is something that every hockey player would look up to, especially because it is an acknowledgement of your prowess in the sport. This is one big inducement for a guy like me.
