My volunteering was sort of special. Over spring break I went home for the week and volunteered. I spent numerous hours coaching hockey for a hockey tournament for the high school team I used to play for. I coached the defensive lines even though I used to be a forward. The team ended up winning the championship in a close game. A major highlight was one of the team’s freshman; and a second year skater, scoring the game tying goal to send the team into overtime and eventually win the game. We had to coach through much diversity since a lot of the varsity players did not want to skate with the incoming freshman. A major chunk of my volunteer hours were spent with the girl’s soccer team. I helped manage the soccer team for two years in high school. I like to come back when I have time and practice with them making them stronger as players. Many of the players I got to know and coach are seniors now. It was really great to see my hard work with the girls paying off in their fine tuning of there skills. The last two of my hours were spent volunteering at the ski hill I grew up on. This was the last day that the ski hill was open so they had a little kid’s day. I used to participate in this when I was much younger. I helped set up cones for the various slalom and down hill events that were hosted on the bunny hill. I helped set the kids up and reset them up when they fell; as well as taking pictures. It game a great joy in all these volunteering hours to see the sparkle in the kids eyes when they made a sweet pass, scored the game winning goal, or won the race at the age of five. My volunteer hours were some of the most fun hours of my spring break.
