Overview

Pass the Puck is the true story about the most exciting year for a ‘Squirt’ Level hockey team. The story takes place in Southfield, MI from September 1992 - April 1993. The 10-11 year old boys share their trials and tribulations throughout a season. They learn to support each other, to develop hockey skills, and to ‘jell’ as a team. You will experience the excitement in the final playoffs and districts. The team’s coaches and parents show the boys that all kinds of kids can learn to get along, learn the skills of hockey, and learn teamwork. The team feels the support and encouragement from their parents and coaches throughout their ups and downs. Each player is given a nickname by their coach, and each player gets a chance to shine. “The Emperor”, “The Meditator” and “Devin, the Mighty Duck” are just a few of the coach’s nicknames.The lessons learned in this story are invaluable. Perseverance is one. Teamwork is another. Moral values are important, too. The most important lesson is a young boy’s understanding and appreciation of a blessed year of hockey and a job well done.

Meet the Author

Diane Shaw, the author, was a dedicated hockey mom when her son, Justin, was growing up all the way through college. She had over 15 years of knowing the game and understanding it from a parent’s point of view. Her true joy was seeing it through a child’s eyes….namely, Justin’s. Diane wrote the book for several reasons. First, it was a good story with moral values that she wanted to share with other hockey coaches, parents and players. Secondly, Diane was an ESL instructor for 20 years where she met many people of all ages from many cultures. Many of them enjoyed the sport of hockey, especially those from Russia, Finland, and Czech Republic. Finally, Diane’s main reason for writing the book was for instructional purposes.  She found very few books on the sport, and she tutored young middle school boys who needed vocabulary development. Hence, the underlined words throughout the text.
Many young boys hate to read, and Diane wanted to give them a book they could experience themselves, while increasing their vocabulary level. She was able to incorporate ‘idioms’ in order to develop comprehension skills, as well. Currently, Diane lives in Howell, MI, and is looking forward to watching her two very young grandsons enjoy the game in the future.
