I think this has been a great 10 days for Turkish Hockey, "Said McAdams". We have 80 players and 12 coaches who have been dedicated to this program and done a great job. We had highest level youth games ever played in Turkey. All the players were dedicated, discipline and improved. We had great fans at all the Senior games. I know all the young players are motivated to improve their game, and the TBHF is doing a great job developing these players. We had 54 coaches at the TBHF Coaching Educational Program eager to improve their knowledge.  I believe the TBHF is doing a great job setting a foundation for success of Turkish Hockey.
