How's YOUR Challenge going?

Congratulations shooters: you've made it through five weeks of shooting and combined have shot almost 74,000 pucks!  Check out the progress graph below. Some of you are on pace to finish in less than 10 weeks (you're shooting more than 500 pucks per week) and some of you are on track to use all 12 weeks available.  BOTH ARE GREAT!!!  You are all doing such a great job so keep it up no matter your pace!
 
Thank you to everyone who has sent in pix of you doing the hard work. Keep 'em coming!
 
The Rochester Coalition from Rochester, New York has THREE TEAMS participating in this year's 5000 Shot Challenge.  Have you convinced your teammates to shoot this summer? If not, tell them to start!  Remember, your team is only as strong as your weakest link. Great job, ROC Hockey!!

Yes, Brooklyn, it's Week 2!

We hope everyone is enjoying shooting.  Thankfully, the weather held out for shooting, but beware of all that pollen!!

 11-year-old Brooklyn P., is already into Week 2...are you? Don't worry if you aren't there quite yet.  We want you to take your time!  Bad habits creep in when we get tired, so if you feel yourself getting tired and losing your correct form, pick up your pucks and rest.  As always: quality over quantity!!!

Check out our Facebook post to see a video on wrist shots by the Boston Bruins' Kim Brandvold...good stuff!! https://www.nhl.com/bruins/video/bruins-academy-s3-episode-6/t-277437088/c-60558503
