A Message from Ron Ellis

‘Over the Boards’ is more than a hockey expression; it’s a very real reflection of the feeling I have about the way life parallels sports. You can practice, you can study the game plans, you can talk about what you want to accomplish, but nothing happens until you jump “over the boards.” Then, it’s the real deal. If we’re not prepared properly, the results may be disappointing. If we stumble and fall in the process, we have to get up and try again. Whether we’re playing professional sports or just living day to day, we must do the very best we can with each opportunity. What matters most in life takes place when we go Over the Boards.
