day 3411: hockey tryouts!

day 3411: hockey tryouts! I.

a year ago odin was an 8 year old trying out to play with 9 and 10 year old “squirts” and he made the squirt B team. this year, now that he’s 9 and has a season of playing with the older squirts under his belt, the question is whether or not he has the skills to make the squirt A team.

the day of tryouts has finally arrived! i think he definitely has the skills to make the A team, but there’s a big difference between 9 and 10 year old skating skills, so who knows. on the one hand i think he’d do well as one of the better B team players and would thrive as a leader on the ice. on the other hand, he pushes himself when he’s around better skaters and he could learn a lot by being on the A team ( he’s in the red socks ).
