U10 AKSIL - 2017
U10 Select Bio… THUNDERSTRUCK! U10精英队介绍… 雷电之鹰!
Like many hockey families, we wake at the crack of dawn and rush to get ready for early morning practice. This is not only for the kids, but also us, because we love the sport!
We are a hockey organization with players coming from many parts of the world to play hockey as a unified team; the Thunderbirds. The Shanghai Thunderbird hockey league was founded in 2005 and our U10 team is now represented by the following nations; Canada, United States, Japan, and Korea.
We take pride in our organization because each year, despite the churn of expat players, we continually build a stronger foundation of talented, young boys and girls who challenge themselves to learn and succeed every time they step on the ice. And we are proving that hard work and dedication is paying off.
Last year, during the Mega Ice Hockey Tournament in Hong Kong, our players proved they were ready to show Asia what we were made of. We solidly performed during this event, and many organizers and opposing coaches commented on our significant development over the last year. Because of this development, we proudly walked away with the Silver Medal.
To compliment our team medal, 2 of our Thunderbirds were recognized as “Best Defensemen” and “Best Goaltender” & our Select “yellow” jersey was noted “Best Jersey” of the tournament. We played a great tournament in Hong Kong!
We are a young volunteer based organization who has taken huge strides in China with developing a youth hockey organization. A great team has developed because our parents and players are a family on and off the ice and are dedicated to the success of minor hockey in a land where the sport was relatively foreign. We pull together as a team, we think as a team, and we play as a team.
We look forward to another great year for our U10 kids and using the words from our team song (Thunderstruck by AC/DC) warn opponents ahead of time…… “Watch out . . . you’ve been Thunderstruck!”
除了团体奖牌，还有两位球员获得了“最佳防守球员”奖 和“最佳守门员”奖。 我们精英队的比赛服也被誉为此次比赛的“最佳球服”。在香港的锦标赛上我们表现得非常成功。
