Exciting first games! Now you all see what I meant by crowded dressing rooms.The rotation will get better once the players and parent volunteers have got accustomed to it. Remember at no point can anyone be on ice without a helmet. This is a  safety issue. Next game we will be going to 4 minute shifts. This will reduce changes and will maximize their time on ice
