The Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour is in North Bay October 17th and 18th and to get ready we’ve started the Countdown to Hometown Hockey, a presentation of U-Need-A-Cab.
In today’s edition we meet Sharon Fung, the creator of the North Bay North Stars, a special needs hockey team,
She says there wasn’t one in North Bay in 2007 and felt there should be one as her son needed to be comfortable when playing the game.
Fung says she did her homework and found that there were many special needs hockey teams in Southern Ontario and it only made sense to get one going here.
The North Bay Battalion open the 2015/16 season tonight when the host the Peterborough Petes at Memorial Gardens.
Battalion Head Coach Stan Butler was asked about the makeup of his team in the very early portion of this season.
He says, “I think we’re like down the road here (Ferguson Street at Chippewa) we’re under construction. We really don’t know what it’s like yet, we got a lot of young players that have potential but potential can be a scary thing because sometimes you reach it and sometimes you don’t.”
The Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour, which arrives in North Bay October 17th and 18th, is hiring.
They’re looking for Brand Ambassadors.
And one of the qualifications for the job is a “Love for hockey!“
