"A Day in the Life of a SEAC Tiger"
Every young hockey player has a role model. For some, it's an older sibling, an uncle or even dear old Dad. For others, it's the future stars of the Western Hockey League or the legends of the National Hockey League.
This Saturday, October 15 members of the SEAC Tigers Bantam and Midget squads will have their chance to play role model for the next generation of young hockey players in our city during "SEAC Day - A Day in the Life of a SEAC Player."
The event runs from 8:00am - 1:45pm at the Medicine Hat Arena, and will see the three SEAC clubs (Bantam AAA, Midget 15's and Midget AAA) take turns managing ice sessions for a dozen Timbit hockey teams from within the city and Irvine. Each ice session will consist of 6 stations which the youngsters will rotate through with the guidance of their SEAC mentors.
Following each ice session, the Timbit players and their parents will be given a tour of the facilities at the home of the SEAC Tigers, the Medicine Hat Arena, including trips to the Fitness Centre, Shooting Centre and Dressing Rooms before finishing up at the Arena lounge for some refreshments, courtesy of Tim Hortons and Safeway.
After the ice sessions and tours are complete, Timbit players and parents are invited to take in a busy slate of hockey action as all three SEAC clubs are in action on Saturday.
The Midget 15's take to the ice first as they host the CBHA Rangers at 2:15pm.
Following that, it's the Midget AAA club's turn, as they do battle with Fort Saskatchewan Boston Pizza Rangers at 5:00pm.
The Bantam AAA club wraps up the action as they host the Lethbridge Val Matteoti Golden Hawks at 7:45pm.
The South East Athletic Club is looking forward to this opportunity to give back to the community and offer future SEAC stars a glimpse of their bright futures. Once again, a big thank you to Safeway and Tim Horton's for providing refreshments at this event. See you at The Arena on Saturday!
