The St. Thomas Tyke & Novice Select Tournament was held at the Timken Centre in St. Thomas, Ontario on February 19-22, 2016. The tournament was sponsored by Boston Pizza, and host to forty-two Tyke and Novice teams. Tyke and Novice are really fun age divisions to photograph. There’s always something happening other than the hockey game. Check out image #8: ‘Skate Malfunction’ to see exactly what I’m talking about.
There’s also a very different atmosphere on the players’ bench when photographing younger divisions. The coaches job description gets a little longer with having to reexplain which side of the rink is left or right when the teams switch sides at the end of a period, or when players have to come off the ice in the middle of a shift to go to the bathroom!
