Pond Hockey

Although the pond hockey community around here is fairly small I'd still like to share the results of this weekend's 2nd Annual Pavillion Cup Pond Hockey Championship here in Saint John, NB, Canada.

First a background of what the Pavillion Cup entails. Dozens, maybe a hundred, teams sign up for this 4 on 4 round robin competition. The games last for 2 20 minute periods with a 5 minute intermission. Every team plays 4 games within a 2 day span.

My team went 1-3 this year, being stacked up agains teams of players from AAA hockey makes it tough. When we were done yesterday at 3:50pm my gut, hips, thighs, and lower back muscles were quite tired and tells me what i have to work on to get better at hockey. Pond Hockey requires more skating before shooting than regular Hockey because of the 6" x 48" net, and the only stoppages are when the puck goes out of play.

I forgot where i was going with this... but it is quite the stamina and explosive workout to play. Everybody should try some sort of skate-based cardio at some point.
