Terri Milby joins the ASHI team
Terri Milby has been around the sport for quite some time. It started when she started working at the Family Fun Spot in Aston, Pa. She began playing in 1997 and eventually got into the tournament circuit. Terri has worked at local rinks for the past 20 years and enjoys being around the game and players. She has had the opportunity to play for the Women’s Master’s Team and was found throughout Banff, Alberta during the ISBHF’s 2016 Master’s World Ball Hockey Championship capturing memories for the Men’s teams. Terri started taking pictures at a few games to practice using her camera. Players then started asking her to do photos for them at their tournaments. Her love for photography just grew from there. When shooting hockey it’s about the rivalries, hearing the stories from the players and being able to capture those great moments. Milby stated, “I was honored to experience the World Master’s Tournament as a player and also photograph the games in Banff. It was such a memorable week.” Men’s Master’s Division General Manager Anthony Cillo announces Assistant General Manager Being around the teams as much as she is it also comes as no surprise that […]
Around the nation in our sport – Alexandria, VA
Around the nation in our sport – Article 2 He’s known as the ‘Commish’ for a reason: Wayne Barrett has been organizing hockey games since he was a kid. Not long after moving to Northern Virginia in the 1980s, he graduated to even bigger things, helping to start a league that rapidly expanded in just a few years. Today, that league — DC Street Hockey, or DCSH as it is known by many league veterans — is widely regarded as the most competitive ball hockey organization in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Based out of Alexandria, Virginia, Barrett’s DCSH is set to begin its 17th year in March, when 18 Sunday teams and 8 Wednesday evening teams face off for the latest season. DCSH offers two Sunday Leagues, including an upper and lower division. Division 1 is its most competitive offering, and mostly includes tournament players and those who have at least several years of ball hockey experience. Division 2 includes players with mixed levels of experience and skill — players who are both new to the game, or who are looking to have a hockey life longer than the ageless Jaromir Jagr. Each league has two seasons annually, consisting […]
