History: Buk Hockey is made up of 8 guys and 6 girls each with their own special talents and abilities. The six girls, Erin(“The Moves”), Jen(“The Pirate”), Stacy(“The Handler”), Seema(“The Bruiser”), Emily (“The Bait”), Mel (“The Fluffer”) were friends in a tight inner circle who first began the team. The boys, Connor (“Flash”), Mike H.(“Bulls Eye”), Braden (“short stick”), Mike J (“The Finisher”), Nic (“Big stick”), Dylan (“The invisible man”), Ashton (“Quick Shoot”), and the goaltender Anthony (“The Ground ”) were initially outsiders but eventually came together as a team.
We have now played together as a team for over 3 years playing every season with a mix of floor hockey multiple days a week and soccer. Although our performance has at times been lacking, we seem to end up always finishing on a strong note with teamwork and fun as our main priority. We play floor hockey through the CSSC to get out and socialize as a group, however, to our surprise, our hockey team performed much better than expected due to the shot blocking capability of our girls who would willingly drop to their knees to stop a hard incoming shot from hitting “The Ground”. The boys, who can’t quite keep up to the stamina and eagerness of the girls, are still getting more and more practice and improving with each game.
We hope to continue to play together for many more years to come, rather in Floor Hockey or any of the multiple other sports provided by the CSSC. We sincerely appreciate being selected for the Lady Bing and hope to continue playing with a ‘fun-first’ attitude to make the game more enjoyable for everyone.
