The New Hyde Park Winter Street Hockey Program was filled with excitement from the first week all the way through to the last. The program began with opening remarks from Officer Jethro Cardona, who fielded questions about sports, the local community and life as a Police Officer. With excitement built up, participants received their new equipment and immediately got into their stretch routine and warmups. They then began passing and shooting drills. In the weeks to follow, these fundamentals were continuously worked on, until near perfection. Most importantly, new teammates were made, and friendships were established. Sparky paid his friends a visit on the final day of the program- he was impressed with how far they've come since he first met them only a few weeks prior!
