Hockey in Canada takes on a whole new level of intensity during the holidays. The World Junior Tournament has become an annual tradition in households from The Soo to Chilliwack and all the way back to St. John’s. It’s a celebration of the Canadian game, and this year will no doubt be another classic as hockey coaches everywhere watch as Canada tries to avenge a heart-breaking shootout last in last year’s tournament.

But you know what else the World Juniors does? It invigorates us. Just imagine Team Canada skating out for their first shift hell-bent on setting the tone early. Those first couple bodychecks always send shivers up my spine.

Being burnt-out at the end of the hockey season’s unofficial first half is as common as grabbing a Double Double on the way to the rink for an early morning practice. It’s dark out early, it’s cold, and the players are fighting through the grind.

So with that in mind, prepare for an inspired second half with these New Year’s Resolutions.

1. Rediscover Your Passion

That could be as easy as tuning into the World Juniors for you, or it might just mean loosening up the reins at practice for some healthy competition. Put some timbits on the line and watch your players go nuts.
