Transition plan

With my two rollerhockey teams set for next season, I am now turning my attention to something different.  No longer am I wanting to join more teams, 2 roller and 1 ice team is enough (if my ice team comes back that is).  I am turning my attention to something different.  A new challenge so to speak, and its something I have wanted to do for a long time.

Becoming an ice hockey referee.

I am really going to make a push to ref more this season.  I have went through the courses, but I have to get recertified here in about a month.  Still, the end result will be me playing less hockey and reffing more.  I am not going to plan on moving away from goaltending entirely next season or even in the next year.  I do however want to start thinking about my long term plan.

The main reason I am doing this is because I don’t want to be a detriment to the team I play for.  I promised myself when I could no longer make a difference playing rec league hockey, I would step away from the game.  At age 37, I have nowhere to go but down now.  I have had so much success and good fortune playing all these years.
