Social Media
Get your game ready for social media.

For players and parents, it will be a wise decision to brush up on your social media skills and etiquette. Use your common sense when posting or tweeting. Read your post or tweet first before you send it. Ask yourself "what image am I conveying when I send this message? Would this be a good representation of myself and my future school?" If your answer is not positive, then don't send it.

Coaches will be using social media more than ever in the recruiting process, so it is extremely important that you have an online representation that is more than acceptable to the college hockey coaches.

Mom and Dad, it will be a great advantage to you to increase your understanding of the social media platforms that your child is using and upgrade your skills as necessary. Your skills in this area will be important in managing the increased contact your child will be receiving.
