2018 Taipei Cup

The HK Selects travelled with 3 teams to Taipei with an opportunity to compete and grow closer with their teammates. Unfortunately, our U8, U12 and U15 programs came up empty, but despite this we saw moments of teamwork and development throughout the week.

Our U8s showed that even with a depleted roster, they still had the heart and passion for the game that will carry them through their hockey journeys. The U12s had to battle through some injury adversity, but still showed moments of brilliance. A lack of consistency seemed to be the lesson here. The U15s were thrown into the dragon’s den as they played a full contact tournament.  Again, very encouraging to see these young men step up and overcome their fears, showing mental toughness, courage and commitment to their club.

As coaches and players, we always want to show gratitude for the opportunity we have to play and coach the game we love in different parts of the world.  This was once again a chance to do so, and we thank the parents and the whole HK Typhoons staffs for making it all possible. Perfection isn’t found in being perfect, but rather in the pursuit of attaining it. As long as we continue to grow, challenge each other and raise the bar higher, we will be on our way.
