When I was a kid growing up playing hockey in Toronto I always wondered what I looked like racing down the ice with the puck on my stick. I imagined I was Bobby Orr skating with power and grace around all defenders to the other end of the ice to bury the puck in the top corner past the goalie to win the game for my team. Rarely did I see myself on tape because video was expensive and technology was still evolving.Modern technology has advanced to the point video can now be sent directly to our smart phones minutes after the game. It’s really amazing how far we’ve come.Kids can watch themselves on video and see what they need to do to improve. Coaches can analyze game video to develop game plans, highlight packages can be created and player profiles can be custom built for prospective U.S. college scholarships bids.
Video is affordable and reliable because it never misses a thing. You’d be surprised what you miss during the course of a game. There’s always a game within the game that doesn’t always follow the puck. These are the moments we don’t get to see that can get lost in the action. Better yet those golden moments when everything is going our way can be captured on video forever. We really can capture the moment and relive the dream with our teammates, family and our friends. So what did you imagine yourself doing on the ice when you were young? Wouldn’t it have been great to capture the moment and relive the dream? It doesn’t have to happen just once or be a memory told time and again. It can live forever in video.
