I can remember sitting in the office one morning in Swift Current with Brandin Cote, our other assistant coach, trying to figure out what we were going to plan for practice that day. We had a busy road schedule the week prior and were now moving into a “college week,” where we would have practice Monday through Friday before playing on the weekend.

It was the second half of the season and we were in the middle of the grind. Practices typically run shorter then as the players start to get run down. Being in a rebuilding situation, our group struggled every night to capture those elusive two points. We needed to mix it up and find a way to get some jump out of our group on a Monday.
