This summer, my family and I literally spent hundreds of hours at Hoover High School, participating in a Keppel PTA-sponsored soccer camp and in the Glendale Parks and Rec swim program. We had the joy of interacting with young Hoover students on a daily basis. I was quite impressed with how polite, respectful and helpful the students were. Both programs utilized some students as teachers or volunteers. Though they were just teenagers, they showed poise and professionalism beyond belief.

I am 16 years old and attend Hoover High School. I play hockey and I want to know why Glendale does not have any type of rink for hockey players. There are new fields for baseball by the Glendale (2) Freeway and a skate park. I play in Burbank for the YMCA and Burbank's Bull Frogs travel team. I've tried to start a club team for my school but that was denied because of reasons unknown. I've already heard of high schools in Burbank with teams. I know many play in Glendale and I know it won't be a waste of money or time for a rink to be built in Glendale.
