TAV Debuts a Hockey Team
An interview with Micheal Bloom
Why did you start the hockey team?
When I was in 9th grade, I put together the hockey team. We got into a league. It’s still going now and I have continued to help with that.
I thought it would be fun to put together a hockey team here because there aren’t any sports teams at TAV. I’m passionate about hockey and I know a lot of my friends are too. I decided to start a team. I had actually had everything set to start in 2019. The dean was about to sign the contract but then the school closed because of COVID.
How did you put the team together?
Right now, I’m trying to put together a team, make jerseys and find an arena. We don’t have a full team yet because getting vaccine proofs has proven to be an issue. We have 15 people so far and we are supposed to have 20. There’s no tryouts right now because we are just starting out. We’ll most likely have a wide range of levels from beginners to very experienced players.
Where do you hope this goes?
I hope to get into a league with the other CEGEPs. I’ve been talking to students who play hockey at Vanier, Dawson, Marinopolis and Champlain. We can’t make the league this year because of COVID protocols but we will start in the winter semester.
