2012-3013 Congdon Blue Squirt Team
The 2012-13 Congdon Squirt Blue team had a growth year. Given the fact that we brought together two players in their 1st year as squirts, a goalie new to the position, and had a couple of players with little or no hockey experience, our success within the Duluth system this year was impressive. Most players gained skill and confidence in their own way. Congdon has always had a great coaching staff and again this year we were blessed with stewards of the game that were committed to putting in the time and expertise to make the most with all the kids. It showed through with individual growth within all Congdon Squirts this year. Congdon is committed to the development of the game and making fun an integral part of TEAM.... Go Congdon!!!!!!
