  • Become part of a diverse, personable, tight-knit hockey community.
  • Writing experience for resumes.
  • Start or expand your writing portfolio/work with social media.
  • Great for high school and college students who are looking to add to their resumes and portfolios!
  • Join a lighthearted but tight-knit family that you can share your hockey passion with!

Key Characteristics We Admire
