Lessons from Behind the Glass

Hockey New Brunswick has partnered with the author of Lessons from Behind the Glass, Allyson Tufts to create a series of “lessons” that promote sportsmanship and positivity in the stands.  The Lessons will posted on the Hockey New Brunswick website and social media feeds bi-weekly, beginning Mid-September.

Whether you are about to lace up your child’s skates for the first time or you have a young teen who is coming close to the end of their Minor Hockey career, Lessons From Behind The Glass is the perfect companion to help you through your most crazy moments in the stands. From politics to perspective to passion, these lessons will help guide you to a balanced and less stressful life in the arena… and keep you laughing along the way!

Allyson attended the Hockey New Brunswick Annual General Meeting in June where she spoke to the Minor Hockey Association representative and HNB membership about her path as a hockey parent, and shared stories about experience.
