Submitted By Deb Larsen on Friday, October 9, 2015
Breakaway, The Minor Hockey Podcast, will hit the airwaves this Thursday. Presented by The Hockey Intelligym, the podcast – which is free to download at www.OMHA.net/Breakaway, iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, PlayerFM or anywhere you consume podcasts – will be a weekly program that’s engaging and current, with topics of interest and relevance to minor hockey families.

“The goal of the show is to sit down with the true leaders of hockey to discuss everything from scoring more goals to how to grow the game,” said Dan Pollard, host of Breakaway. “As a hockey dad and with my involvement in my local minor hockey association, I jumped at the opportunity to contribute to this great endeavor.”

Focusing on the pride, passion and participation of our national game, Breakaway, The Minor Hockey Podcast will deliver a cross-section of topics including playing and coaching tips, equipment reviews, activities and the state of the game from different perspectives. All episodes appeal to players, parents, coaches, trainers, referees, administrators and fans of hockey.

“The guests we have lined up range from professional coaches to national hockey leaders to experts in health, fitness and development,” says Executive Director, Richard Ropchan, which hints at how the podcast will help parents and players live healthy, active lives.

The Hockey Intelligym has come on board as presenting sponsor of Breakaway, The Minor Hockey Podcast. IntelliGym’s brain workout improves hockey sense by boosting a player’s ability to anticipate the play, improving on ice awareness and fostering better decision making. Breakaway, The Minor Hockey Podcast will be available for download every Thursday at www.OMHA.net/Breakaway
