OUR ARENA SHOULD BE LIKE OUR HOME.......................
Coach Mark here on his soap box for just a little bit.
We all need to be more respectful of the place we call High Country Sports Arena. This is a great place that was built by volunteers and is run by volunteers. My kids like to refer to the place as our second home. The problem is that we continue to have our kids treat our home with disrespect.
This can't be my kid!!!
Well yes it is all of our kids. We leave trash all over the place in the rooms. We use the rental equipment and just leave it in the locker room for someone else to pick-up. We look for rental equipment and pull all the rental gear out on the floor and then leave it there. We try to find a jersey and pull all the jerseys out and leave them all over the floor. We bring our drinks to the benches and just leave the half full bottle on the bench for some else to put it in the recyling bin that is 2 feet away. We bring our food to eat and leave the cup and bag in the stands for some else to throw them away.
Look around the rink and you will see where our kids have broken the cabinets in the rental shop. Have broken the doors (so we put in solid core doors), have continued to show disrespect to our home.
Here is my challenge to everyone that takes the time to read this. Lets do our best to make sure that our kids behave when they are in our home. If they are not behaving then we need to straighten them out and make them behave. Every kid in this arena is one of our kids and we have a responsibility to make sure that they behave and respect our home.
So if you see them out of line. Lets call them on it and lets make our home a better place.
If you ask some of the people that no longer have an arena and they will tell you how much we should all feel lucky that we have such a great place. So lets treat our home with the utmost respect so that it will always be here. It is the right thing to do.
