East Aurora Hockey Program is Growing in Size and Skill

East Aurora Hockey Program is Growing in Size and Skill

The 2010-2011 season has brought a great change to the East Aurora/Holland club hockey program. Never have the members of the program been so compatible and assiduous. The JV and varsity teams appear to just be getting started, with new games bringing stronger wins in terms of scoring goals and of establishing a more impregnable team, of which East Aurora can be proud.

The beginning of the East Aurora Hockey Team coincided with the effort to create an ice rink in the Village of East Aurora, as parents and other adults worked to give members of the community the opportunity to glide on the ice.

“Gow is becoming known as one of the best destinations in the world for dyslexic students,” said the Gow School’s headmaster, M. Bradley Rogers.
