Switching Positions

My 8 year old son Joshua is in his 4th year of playing hockey. Joshua has been talking about wanting to play goalie for the last couple years and has progressively become more and more interested in the position. Over the last couple of months it had become clear to me that my sons heart was set on becoming a goalie. Anytime he has free time to spend on the computer or his iPad he is watching goalie videos on YouTube. I bought him a street hockey goalie set for his net in the basement and he asks me to play with him down there everyday as soon as I walk through the door. My wife and I talked it over and came to the conclusion that there was no question, Joshua wanted to be a goalie.

Joshua plays at the Novice (Mites in the US) level and at this level of hockey the kids just rotate the goalie position. Next year Joshua will be moving up the Atom level and it is there that teams have full-time goalies. So with that in mind we decided to get him his goalie gear early and get him practicing up for next years try outs. Yesterday Joshua had his first chance to try out his new gear in a game and I am happy to report it went great! A lot of good saves went down, but more importantly my son’s dream of becoming a goalie has come true and he’s happy.

Joshua’s 1st Saints Game

rob moses exif data Canon 50D 70-200mm 2.8 isMy son Joshua (#18) is playing “Timbits” hockey this year. The team he plays for is called the Saints and they had their first real game on Saturday. Joshua had a really great game and scored 7 goals for his team! What a guy, I couldn’t have been more proud of him :). I didn’t get a shot of the crowed, as they were up and behind me and I only brought my 70-200mm. I can tell you for sure though, the crowd was fired up and really into the game. It was a super fun atmosphere.

Usually I shoot hockey pictures with my 5D mark iii, but this time I decided to bring a crop sensor camera (Canon 50D) for the extra reach. I had never been to this area before and I wasn’t sure where I was going be shooting from, so I figured I’d better have that extra reach incase I was going to be far off. The 50D’s auto focus isn’t exactly renowned and the same could be said for the high ISO capabilities. The pictures turned out ok, but the noise turned out to be more of an issue than I had anticipated. Ah well, live and learn! I’ll be shooting the next game with the 5D for sure.

Joshua The Hockey Player

My 5 year old son Joshua has started playing organized hockey this year. The program he has joined is called Grassroots Hockey and it is a mellow introduction to organized hockey. The kids play outdoors and the focus seems to be more on having fun, rather than taking the game to serious. This was Joshua’s 2nd game and he got him self a nice little hat trick (3 goals) for the 2nd game in a row. They don’t have proper goalies or anything, so scoring isn’t exactly the hardest thing to do in this league haha ;). It’s really fun and super cute watching these little guys bumping around the rink.

Go Flames!

This morning my 2 best buddies and I decided a little trip to the park was in order. The day was completely overcast in the morning and I thought it would be a good opportunity to get a couple of pictures of us together with out having to worry about lighting. Since the NHL season is about to start I thought why not toss the ol Calgary Flames jerseys on for good measure. 🙂
