GEL SHARE: The Dynamic World Around Glen Ellyn

Last week I was fortunate to attend a USA Hockey training seminar at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

One of the presenters shared this video during the seminar which captured the changing world we live in today, and the challenge instructors face in teaching others in a rapidly evolving world, especially as it relates to our youth.

It is a remarkable piece of information that I hope you find as interesting as I did on many levels. I encourage you to share your comments...
