On Sunday evening, 26 white, grey and rookie Vikings, 5 goalies and coaches took the inaugural trip to Diez for the first skate of the new season. In attendance were many Viking veterans but it was amazing to see the amount of new faces, some of who were trying out ice hockey for the first time.
We started with introductions, stretches, agility drills, group skill drills and topped it off with a nice scrimmage at the end.
The first several skates help us to determine on which of our four teams each player will be playing this season.
Next up is Black and Red on Sunday, 8 September at 1830 in Diez.
