Hockey Spirit Discovers The Hospitality of Newfoundlanders while designing the new hockey fundraising calendar. Part I of II
We teamed up with hockey enthusiastic kids from Corner Brook Newfoundland to create this vivid image of hockey joy for our 2011- 2012 Hockey Spirit Fundraising Calendar.
It is a beautiful example of energy that hockey brings to hockey kids and families across this nation. Can you feel it?
How this hockey scene came about:
While creating this particular hockey scene we had a somewhat staged ideas in mind. Everything we do starts in part with a photograph or sometimes 7 photographs. So we got to work and asked the kids to play along and to do some deking and dodging with the overall intention that little 4 year old Luke was going to score!
The kids were excellent sports and they kept the defense light so that Luke could get his goal. From the moment we said action (or was that Okay! Go! Play!) Little Luke was chipping, digging, and taking on the bigger kids. I couldn’t believe the moves he was dishing up. He had spunk and he had game, and then BANGO he scored that goal. All be it, it was a slightly high goal, the acting was over, little Luke threw his hands up in the air and started running circles of celebration. He was so over the top happy! Even with his helmet falling over his eyes the cheering wasn’t over! No Sir. No Mam. Look at the other children’s eyes and expressions. They were genuinely happy for him and could feel the pure joy he was having in scoring that goal!
If you would like to see the real life version of Luke’s big hockey goal check out the video snippet we took while it was unfolding before our eyes. You are welcome to watch the video on our Hockey Spirit YouTube Channel.
