In The Rookie Hockey Mom, Walsh, the mother of four seasoned hockey players, celebrates youth hockey as a fun and wholesome adventure for the entire family. She also candidly advises new hockey moms on rink etiquette and informs them on how much youth hockey will cost them in time and money.  Moms who think that icing is for cakes and boards are for college will be saved embarrassing moments around the rink as Walsh educates them on the rules, terminology, and officiating signals of ice hockey. Chapters also cover hockey history, purchasing and caring for equipment, tips on safely, development levels and guidelines, and advice for cooperating with coaches and other hockey parents. There’s great insight into connecting with child hockey players, managing a team, choosing a league, and fueling young skaters with good nutrition.

Salted with quotes from hockey players and moms who’ve been there and loaded with the wisdom that only a real hockey mom can offer,  The Rookie Hockey Mom is a must for hockey-crazy families and the women who drive them everywhere.
