RED DEER - Allyson Tufts, author of Lessons from Behind the Glass, will serve as the keynote speaker on Friday night for the 2018 Hockey Alberta Annual General Meeting.
A book designed specifically for parents with a child in organized sports, Lessons from Behind the Glass outlines the ups and downs that come from being a hockey parent, based on Tuft’s first-hand experience as a hockey mom.
"If I could go back and do all these things differently, I would’ve," said Tufts in a promotional video for the book. "So, in realizing I couldn’t, I thought the best way to deal with it was to write something to help other people."
Since the launch of her book in April 2015, Tufts has seen great success, selling thousands of copies across Canada and the United States. She’s been on an exciting speaking tour, presenting along side Tom Renney, the President of Hockey Canada, Pinball Clemons, CFL football star and motivational speaker and Kirk MacLean former NHL goalie. Allyson continues to spread her message to parents about creating a better atmosphere for our young athletes in whatever sport they choose.
Tufts will kick off the 2018 AGM weekend by speaking to the 100-plus delegates from Hockey Alberta’s member organizations from across province about her book, and the lessons stemming from it.
MHAs and club teams still have time to sign up for the Hockey Alberta AGM, which runs Friday and Saturday in Red Deer. Registration information and AGM details can be found on hockeyalberta.ca.
